This book is full of lies and incorrect information. Esther DeSersa and Olivia Pourier told many lies. So many important parts were left out. My grandmother Betty O'Rourke was raised by Ben Black Elk. She lived with him in his cabin which is viewable from where our house sits. She new him more about him than any of those other people named in this book full of lies. Dont read this book unless you enjoy being lied to. If you want the truth pick up the phone and call Betty O'Rourke at 605-867-1739 she will happily talk to anyone willing to listen. Or visit us in Manderson South Dakota. We own a restaurant and happily except anyone.
