With the same panoramic vision and mythic sensibility he brought to The Ice-Shirt, Vollmann continues his hugely original fictional history of the clash of Indians and Europeans in the New World. Through the eyes of vastly different peoples, Vollmann reconstructs America's tragic past.

Review: Fathers and Crows (Seven Dreams #2)

User Review  - Peggy - Goodreads

In my opinion this is a book to be read slowly.. over a summer or a winter.. It contains so much!! The words, poetry.. the history.. the characters.. wow.. this is my first Vollmann, but won't be the last. almost 1,000 pages. Put back some time to study this one. Read full review
