    Hi Jenny,

    Please add “Walking Wakan” to your books (if you’ve read it too). It’s refreshing to read about a real place, real culture (albeit one that is struggling to survive) and characters you would love to meet, but probably never will. I think there are too many books with the same ‘feel’ or theme stories — i.e. vampires, animals that talk, etc. This one is like no other book you’ve ever read…
