It was the roaring 20s, and Americans were living the dream, except for…
… those hundreds of Native Americans wrongly committed to our nation’s only Indian insane asylum. Once there, they endured unimaginable torture and abuse with no hope of ever being free. These people were real. Their suffering was real. Their story will touch your very soul.
This powerful, heart-wrenching saga came from the records in the South Dakota State Archives for the Canton Indian insane asylum.
Highly-acclaimed, Fallen Hopes, Taken Dreams is a must-read for historical fiction and Native American fans.

A great story
This is possibly the best book covering this aspect of our history that I have ever read. I am Cherokee myself and am always seeking information on the plight of the Native American both in history and today. I love the information in this book and thank the author for sharing it.
