    Lokota heroes, language and tradition, General Custer, the carving of Mt. Rushmore and so much more from the USA between 1876 and 1936 woven together in a beautifully crafted novel. Simmons is one of my favorites.

    I knew very little about Mishima until I started reading this, very compelling character he was and the story of his missing Katana is riveting to me.

    here is a preview if you are interested.

    Mishima's one of my favorite authors, the man was an absolute master of literature. I'll have to check this book out, thanks for the recommendation.

    Right now I am reading, "Water for Elephants". So far I have to say I love this book. It's about a man in his 90's reminiscing about his time working for a circus in the 1930's. The author did a lot of research on this book, and it reads very well. I highly recommend it, even though I am only 100 pages into it

    Hey Chu...wasn't sure if you knew about this:
    HANS LANDA VS EDWARD CULLEN! IN A CIRCUS!

    I'm not sure if this is the most current info...there may have been some casting changes since this.
