John Smith posts on 1/6/2010 6:12:40 PM I just finished this book,and really thought it was amazing! It's constant reminder of contrast between our worlds is proof that the author was a genius. I know it based on a true story but it is the way he worded it that amazed me.
Sierra Little Cricket posts on 6/25/2008 10:59:39 AM Im 13yo and I love this book! I'm full blooded Cherokee. One thing I love about this book is that for a change,the author gives CORRECT accounts of atrocities commited during those times. With the exception of a very few tribes, the vast majority of Native Americans didnt attack unless doing so in retaliation for an attack on them.

Beverlee posts on 4/3/2005 9:32:32 PM I read this as an adult and couldn't put this book down! I have always loved animal stories but this topped all I have read. I would love to be able to write true stories like this one. It is amazing what animals will do in certain circumstances.
