Publisher's Summary

A Horse Fiction Book for Adults
Racism can linger in the strangest of places. Sometimes, even within yourself.
For Clara Lacroix, the past was the place she chose to dwell. That's where her memories of Boone, and the life they shared, resided.
But for Joe Black Hawk, the past was a painful mix of a fading heritage he didn't want to lose, and a string of mistakes he'd just as soon forget.
Spanning thousands of acres across the Sandhills of Nebraska, Crossroads Ranch operates as a mustang training facility and equine-assisted psychotherapy practice.
Here, in the beautifully rugged grasslands over which the Lakota Sioux once roamed freely, the lives of fifth-generation rancher, Clara LaCroix, and fifth-generation reservation Indian, Joe Black Hawk, collide in a tragic event that fuels an eruption of racial bitterness.
As each struggle to cope with their own personal loss, both must learn to navigate the present with tolerance and, ultimately, forgiveness in order to reconcile with the past and one another.
As the first novel to portray the process and effects of equine-assisted psychotherapy, No Dogs or Indians is the story about the importance of history, the relevance of ancestry, and the critical balance between remembering the roots that set us apart while celebrating the humanity that binds us together.

Ambitious mixture of themes

The characters in this book are dealing with a lot of different issues: dealing with grief, anger and hatred, racial stereotypes, using horses in therapy, the juvenile justice system, the plight of the wild mustangs, the treatment the Indian nations have received over the years, reservations, native religious beliefs, recovery from drug and alcohol abuse... What's interesting is the way the issues are interrelated. This could have been a really bleak story, but there are glimmers of hope. Change is possible, it just isn't necessarily easy.

The narrator did a wonderful job of differentiating the various characters. I was never confused about who was speaking.

No Dogs or Indians

No Dogs or Indians
: Lisa Hare

A book that peels back the layers of human emotions all the way, to show the listener how ugly attitudes can be even if you think you are a good person. Stereotyping another ethnic group because of actions of some is shown and how unfair it can be. When a person tries to break the cyclical effects of addiction and abuse is scoffed at, it is sad.

Wild Mustangs that are rounded up and taken to a preserve "for their own good," show the plight of certain ethnic groups.

The setting is beautifully portrayed. When the Badlands are described, I felt transported back home, having spent the first eleven years of my life just over the state line in Wyoming.

The narration was well done.The characters were well portrayed. I loved Portia's voice, she sounded just like I think her character would sound.

I highly recommend this audiobook!!!!!!
