I am re-reading Counting Coup: The True Story of Basketball and Honor on the Little Big Horn by Larry Colton. I read the book when it first came out in '01. The book is about journalist Larry Colton trip to the Crow rez in Montana to do a story on high school basketball. There he met Sharon Laforge, a seventeen-year Crow girl, the star player on the Hardin high school basketball team. He then ended up writing about her and the season she took her team to the state finals!
I am re-reading the book because early in the summer, my wife and I went through Montana on our way to Seattle and we did stop off and visit the Crow rez. We went by Hardin high school and I said to my wife isn't that the high school where Sharon Laforge went to school? We went on to the trading post there on the Crow rez and they had a bookstore that had all kinds of Indian books, but not "Counting Coup." I asked the woman if she had the book and she said I had the book a few years ago. It just seems like they would have a few copies on hand since it is about one of their tribal members and it is such a well writtten book!
If you have a daughter that plays basketball this is the book to read!
