School Library Journal Review

YA-- With Costner's comment that the film ``Dances with Wolves will forever be my love letter to the past,'' the stage is set for this book, which is a testament to the affection and care expended on the film. Glorious photographs, actual screenplay, and explanatory comments from actors, technical advisors, and the authors provide background for this production. The magnificence of the Native American, wolf, and buffalo, along with the respect and concern with which this film was made, are captured in this stirring work . (c) Copyright 2010.
