Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“This appealing portrayal of a strong family offers an unromanticized view of Native American culture, and a history lesson about the Iroquois Confederacy; it also gives a subtle lesson in the meaning of daily courage.” Publishers Weekly
“This timely story should offer much to young listeners, particularly those who feel lost or left out.” AudioFile
“With so many Native American stories set in the misty past, it’s great to read a children’s book about an Iroquois boy who lives in the city now…The purposive information and message are lightened by family jokes that mock solemn Hollywood stereotypes…and show the loving intimacy between people who can tease each other and laugh together.” Booklist
“A worthy, well-written novella.” Kirkus Reviews
