* . . . a powerful evocation of the Native American Plains culture . . . written with notable perception, humility, and imagination. It tells the intricate and arresting story of a unique landscape, a people of profound resilience and pride, and a heritage that is rich and deeply human.
--N. Scott Momaday (Pulitzer-Prize winning author of House Made of Dawn)
* This is how the story of a people should be told. Whether read as a textbook, a novel, or a history, this history-told-as-a-novel is certain to become a standard study of the Native American experience.
--Roger Welsch (Nebraska folklorist and author)
* This is an American story, the First American story, and a stunning page-turner.
--Richard Edwards (Director, Center for Great Plains Studies).
* This book vividly traces the extraordinarily difficult journey taken by ten generations of one Pawnee family . . . it is the story of us--the Pawnee people—and how we got to the Twenty-First Century through service, sacrifice and traditions passed down by our ancestors.
--Andrew Knife Chief (Executive Director, Pawnee Nation of Oklahoma)
