Those who enjoy reality TV will be enchanted, while others will appreciate the depth of character, the beautiful setting and the many touches of wry humor.

Building and running the Mystic Warriors Horse Camp for Lakota youth is something Dillon Black dreams of and has been working toward for a long time. He owns the property, and
he has a plan, but money's a problem. Then help comes from an unexpected source -- his ex-wife, TV domestic diva Monica Wilson-Black. She arranges for her friend, producer Ella Champion, to consider Dillon's project for the reality show Who's Our Neighbor?

Dillon's not sure doing the show is a great idea, but he can't resist the possibility of finally making his dream a reality. It's also wonderful for the local economy, offers a chance to spend some quality time with the kids he shares with Monica -- and gives him the opportunity to get to know Ella a lot better. How can he say no? (MIRA, Mar., 352 pp., $6.99)

Mystic Horseman

Submitted by mlacroix on September 20, 2010 - 4:01pm.

Dillon Black has a dream of opening a horse camp for wayward kids. But his dream has been put on hold when he and his daughter aren't given the grant they applied for. Monica Black is a mover and a shaker in the television world in the big city. She knows that Dillon has worked hard for his dream. She suggests to a friend Ella Champion that the renovation show she produces renovate Dillon's place. Dillon is surprised when his son Dylan and his ex-wife show up. This is a chance for Dillon to pass his Lakota heritage on to his son. Soon he falls in love with Ella, who's the daughter of an Indian activist and half Santee Sioux.

I have discovered a new author. Even though this was a slow reading book I really enjoyed it. Being part Santee Sioux myself I enjoyed this book, because it gives me a glimpse into Lakota people, as the book says we are cousins. I enjoyed that Dillon prided himself as a Lakota and that their is an author out there willing to take a risk and write about them
