ndian outlaw Award-winning author Kathleen Eagle lives the cross-cultural story, and her life experience resonates in her poetic prose. Even as she portrays with tender mercies the struggles of people haunted by the past and challenged by what could be, Eagle delivers the promise of her latest title, You Never Can Tell.

Kole Kills Crow tantalized readers in Eagle's earlier writing, and his story demanded telling. The modern day Lakota warrior has turned his back on his past as an Indian rights activist, on his history as a father, and even on his people, as he hides out on a northern Minnesota Chippewa reservation. When investigative reporter Heather Reardon tracks him down, Kole must confront his own choices and the past that hovers in the shadows of his heart.

Eagle writes with haunting intensity about the struggle of survival in Indian country and the evocative battle for two loving people to overcome obstacles of culture and their own vulnerabilities.

Sandy Huseby writes and reviews from her homes in Fargo, North Dakota, and lakeside in northern Minnesota.
