All the Buffalo Returning by Dorothy M. Johnson
This sequel to Dorothy M. Johnson's Buffalo Women continues the story of Grandmother Whirlwind's family of Hunkpapa and Oglala Sioux who flee to Canada with Sitting Bull after the Battle of the Little Bighorn. This book is a haunting novel about the fate of the Lakotas who find no surcease in Canada but are driven back onto their dwindling reservation by starvation. Stormy, the grandson of Whirlwind, travels with his family to Pine Ridge for Wovoka's Ghost Dance. There, true believers who perform the sacred dance will experience the return of the lost buffalo and pony herds as well as the spirits of the beloved dead.
