Reader's Review: This book was surprisingly a format I never read before. It was comic book style and with each illustration it told me about Jim's story growing up. Its was really fascinating to learn about him and his life as he grew up. I found his story was really sad with the loss of his older brother. There is a lot more in there, but you must read this for yourself. If the story doesn't move you the illustrations will. I wanna thank Jim and Liz Frances for introducing me to his memoir. It's truly remarkable.

This powerful graphic novel shares the author's journey of discovering his spiritual home as a Native American. From a childhood in suburbia, disconnected from his identity as an Indigenous person, through an urban adulthood marked by a struggle with alcoholism and the death of his parents, to his life-altering experience at Standing Rock, he begins to find a new sense of self as a Native and as an American.

In Jim’s own words:

The idea is that this book might be a hand reaching out. Perhaps one might chuckle at the recollections of an 80’s pop culture child, or identify with the often polarizing nature of being biracial? Maybe someone who’s been knocked around by intolerance, and toxic masculinity, or who has struggled with addiction, will hear a voice from someone who has been there too, and is doing “okay” now.
