"Larry Colton journeys into the world of Montana's Crow Indians and follows the struggles of a talented, moody, charismatic young woman named Sharon LaForge, a gifted basketball player and a descendant of one of George Armstrong Custer's Indian scouts. But Counting Coup is far more than just a sports story or a portrait of youth. It is a sobering expose of a part of our society long since cut out of the American dream." "Colton delves into Sharon's life and shows us the realities of the reservation, the shattered families, the bitter tribal politics, and a people's struggle against a belief that all their children - even the most intelligent and talented - are destined for heartbreak."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
