Wheezer and the Shy Coyote (Review)

Wheezer and the Shy Coyote by Kitty Sutton
Reviewed by Alex Canton-Dutari
I used to think that I was a sensitive person that could control his outpour of emotions easily. This book proved me wrong, especially after having read the previous book by Kitty Sutton -- Wheezer and the Painted Frog.
The plight of the American Indian during their forced move to their government sponsored ghetto - concentration camp -- no other way to call it -- was very well conveyed. The use of alcohol to subdue this entire nation is well explained in the story, so much that it surpassed the love story involved.
A few words of interest: It is mentioned that a main character questioned the lack of tolerance of alcoholic beverages on the Indians. All Mongolic races have the same characteristic. The Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese, just to name a few groups, have the same genetic disposition. We should remember that all Indians from the whole American Continent migrated from Mongolia to America through the Bering Straights. The Panamanian Indians cannot drink alcohol without becoming immediately depressed and suicidal in many cases.
The book is well-documented and written in a way that kept me wanting to read non-stop.
