A Scattering of Crows, Patricia Reynolds

A complex tale of magical realism and adventure brings the children’s voice of the Lakota Sioux, to life — taken from their homes and sent hundreds of miles away to a boarding school out east.

A charismatic Preacher, named James Crumm, heard the calling and came forthwith. His mission was to save the children from a life of barbaric savagery and sin— lead them to a life of eternal salvation. The teachers are committed to the Preacher’s vision and set about removing their culture, language and sins. This where the Preacher’s spiral into madness begins.
