Miko Kings is set in Indian Territory's queen city, Ada, Oklahoma, during the baseball fever of 1907, but moves back and forth from 1969 during the Vietnam War to present-day Ada.

I don't care for baseball, so at first I was unsure if I would enjoy Miko Kings, but my curiosity got the best of me and I had to read it just to see what LeAnne Howe had created. I was quite surprised by the level of intricate storytelling that I found. Miko Kings is not a simple story about baseball, there is time travel, Choctaw etymology, and a history lesson all rolled up inside. LeAnne Howe took all the facts and information she could find about the history of Ada, baseball, and the Dawes Commission, wove them all together with Choctaw language, and created a shockingly vivid story with very full characters. Miko Kings was a fascinating journey and LeAnne Howe is a fantastic writer! ( )
