This story started a little slow but I'm so glad I stuck with it. Touching and inspirational, a small book with a large lesson.

The cover blurb says this is a "modern classic of Native American Life' - and it's true.

Recommended by my kayaking guide on a trip to Alaska. She did not steer me wrong. I thought it was a very moving and spiritual book.

I loved this book. I read it years ago and parts of it still stick with me. It was touching and powerful in a quiet way.

It's been more years than I want to admit since I read this book, but it's one that stayed with me. A short, easy read, but one that I consider a classic, and one that is an ideal choice for any tween, male or female.

I really enjoyed this book. I'm not one for lot's of detail, and there isn't too much given...I like to draw my own conclusion about the scenes laid out and the character's...this gives the freedom to do so but keeps you involved in the present story. I must say, I got a little teary at the end and books rarely have that affect on me :) I can't wait to read the second one!!!
