    I learned alot

    The story is told from the Indian¿s viewpoint. The story opens in an Indian village where things are not as others have portrayed them. The family order and desolated is awesome. Our young man enters the long road from boy to brave. He tests him self as others and circumstances test him. He is captured and must learn the white mans ways. I have always loved the Native American. The book helped me see so much into there ways and customs and hoe they tried so desperately to live with us. The young brave is caught between his loved life and the change that is coming to his people. Vernon Lewis
