Winner of a Spur Award, Buy the Chief a Cadillac is a powerful story of American Indians confronting an uncertain future in the Pacific Northwest. In his praise of this dramatic novel, best-selling author Tony Hillerman says it "should be added to reading lists for students of American history." In 1954, after the government implements the Indian Termination Act, three Klamath brothers are forced to contemplate their futures amidst the growing turmoil of life on the reservation.

    " Excellent historical fiction. Distressing but I imagine quite real. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sue | 3/13/2011

    " If I had not grown up in Klamath I would have not liked this book at all. I didn't like the way it was written (the story line is too simplistic) although the content was pretty accurate as to how I remember the Chiloquin Indians' dismal situation & way of life during the 60's-70's. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amy | 8/8/2010

    " Having grown up with this as part of my own history, this book was amazing. Yes, it's fiction. Even Steber says "the book...does not exist." But what a fascinating "look" at what happened, and the effect it had. "
