Transcript of Counting Coup: A True Story Of Basketball And Honor On The Little big horn.
Book By Larry Colton
COUNTING COUP is the story of the girls' varsity basketball team of Hardin High School in Crow, Montana. The team is comprised of both Crow Indian and White girls, and is led by Sharon Laforge, a moody, undisciplined, yet talented Native American who hopes to be the first female player from Hardin to earn a basketball scholarship to college and Lead her Team to the Finals.
Reason for Writing
The Reason Larry Colton Wrote Counting Coup was because he became interested and curious about young Native American Athletes and he became to wonder why Native American Athletes never got Scholarships for College basketball even though they were very good at the sport and Basketball was a something that was a Passion for theses young Natives.
