Spirit Car: Journey to a Dakota Past by Diane Wilson

This book contains a variety of material: stories, facts, speculation, and insights. The stories in Book One are based on real people whose lives have been reimagined on a bedrock of facts. I wanted to bring the facts alive, to see and feel history transformed into a living, breathing reality with human beings who cared deeply about thier families, about their lives. Book two continues the narrative with stories from my life , especially those drawn from the long search to understand my family's Dakota identity. My intent was to write a memoir in which I serve as a guide through a larger story. The result: an historical for family memoir that combines a bit of everything in tellilng a story that spans five generations. In the process, I discovered just how deeply our identities are influenced by the forces of history.
