This sequel to DANCES WITH WOLVES finds Dances with Wolves, Stands with a Fist, and their children ten years later, facing escalating threats by white armies and settlers. Attempts to survive will take the characters through battles, a kidnapping, a visit to Washington, and, ultimately, a future that none of the tribe could have foreseen. Bruce Boxleitner's narration in a low, slightly rough voice is rich and intense, interpreting the author's words so fully that the listener feels some of the devastation of facing the annihilation of one's way of life. His voicing of characters is subtle but clearly differentiates between male and female, Indian and white (with phrasing and slightly different vowel accents), and children (conveyed through tones of curiosity and innocence). This engrossing production transports the listener. M.A.M. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB / MAR 03]
