really enjoyed this-interesting that he kept correcting Obama's own version of his life from dreams of my father-though I do believe everyone has a story of their life as they see it which might differ in small ways from reality

Chronology at times a challenge.

Along the way, he exposes the abuses of the residential schools for native Americans and of the abuse and exploitation of native Americans who excel in sport. The years of Thorpe's development and ascendancy make for wonderful reading but the story of his long life of disappointments and exploitation is grim despite his efforts to help other native Americans and to pursue his case for justice.… (més)
