13. On a trip out west some years ago had to go to the site.

It is out of the way, but it is not comemorated as I had hoped. The sad chapters of our history often go unnoticed. Paid a local at a flea market type stand to point out how the massacre unfolded. Never forgot the impact of the book and realized then and there it would be a lonely place to die if you didn't appreciate the beauty of the grasslands. Went to the local hotel looking for a room and was told that it was booked. The gravel lot was empty. Turns out there was to be a Sundance ceremony that night and the revelers would show up later and dance until the sun rose. We could plug into the outside wall and camp under the tree outback. While cooking dinner we were visited by a lonely dog. In the background the grasses were swept by the wind. Went to bed around 9 and were wakened at midnight by the ceremony. How our ancestors missed the wonder of that ancient heritage plays out today.
