Black Hills by Dan Simmons

Black Hills by Dan Simmons

Paha Sapa knows that he was born during the Moon of Ripening in the Year the Lightning Struck the Ponies. He knows that Lakota children are almost never named after places – his name, Paha Sapa, Black Hills, is very unusual and it made the other boys snicker – but he also knows that on the night that he was born near Bear Butte at the end of that hot, strange summer when the lightning struck the pony herd three times, the three most important men in the village – their war chief, Angry Badger; their old, tired wicasa wakan, Loud Voice Hawk; and their best and real wicasa wakan, Limps-a-Lot – all dreamed of the Black Hills.

    I'm only on page 94 or so but so far it is interesting. I've never read Simmons before
