In The Holy Road, sequel to Dances With Wolves, master storyteller Michael Blake at long last continues the saga. Eleven years have passed sub Lieutenant John Dunbar became Dances With Wolves and married Stands With A Fist, a white-born woman raised as a Comanche from early childhood. With their three children, they live peacefully in the village of Ten Bears. But there is unease in the air, caused by increased reports of violent confrontations with white soldiers, who want to drive the Comanches onto reservations. Disquiet turns to horror, and then to rage, when a band of white rangers descends on Ten Bear's village, slaughtering half its inhabitants and abducting Stands With A Fist and her infant daughter. The three surviving great warriors - Wind In His Hair, Kicking Bird and Dances With Wolves - decide they must go to war with the white invaders. At the same time, Dances With Wolves realizes that only he can rescue his wife and child. Told with the same sweep, insight, and majesty that have made Dances With Wolves a worldwide phenomenon, The Holy Road is an epic story of courage and honor.

"George Guidall narrates the sequel to DANCES WITH WOLVES. The peaceful life Lieutenant John Dunbar has built with his family is threatened by encroaching American soldiers. Dunbar, now called Dances with Wolves, gathers a small hunting party to strike back against white rangers after a horrific assault on a Comanche village. Guidall gives the characters nuance and the sweeping narrative an evocative voice. The narration and writing blend well, with captivating pacing, tense action, and a gut punch of an ending. Guidall's steady voice balances the action with joyful exuberance and heartrending sadness as the historical Western captures the horror and inhumanity of the time. Fans of the movie and newcomers alike will be swept up in an epic listen brimming with courage and honor. J.M.M. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine"
