Editorial Reviews

Booklist
“This is storytelling at its best as Sneve combines history, legend, and autobiography to create a loving look at a fascinating people.”—Booklist
Winds of Change
“Piecing together the stories of her grandmothers in much the same way she pieces together colored cloth to make a quilt, Virginia Driving Hawk Sneve creates a rich pattern of history that highlights the experiences of the women in her family through four generations. . . . These stories of the strength and tenacity of Native American women can enrich the lives of all women. . . . We have much to learn from these women.”—Winds of Change
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Sneve, author of stories for children about Native American culture (High Elk's Treasure), here details her family history. Descended from three branches of Sioux (the Santee, Teton and Yankton), Sneve consulted archival records and published sources to supplement the oral histories and legends that had been passed down to her by her grandmothers, whom Sneve remembers as religious, hardworking and loving individuals. They were devout Christians as a result of missionary work among Native Americans, and both women gave Sneve a respect for her Sioux cultural heritage. Her paternal grandmother, Flora Driving Hawk, was an expert quilter; Sneve's memories of her grandmother's stitching inspired her to fashion quilts of her own. Sneve also describes the suffering imposed on her great-grandmothers and grandmothers by the U.S. government when they were forced into reservation life. Of greatest interest to historians. Photos.

George Cohen
Sneve, a Lakota Sioux Indian, is best known for her children's books about Sioux life and culture. In her latest book she tells the story of what she calls "the neglected feminine half" of her family. The author spent several years researching records and interviewing relatives and now tells of her great-grandmother's grandmother, Shots through the Breast, who was a mixed-blood Ponca, and Shots through the Breast's mother, who was taken captive by an enemy band of Crows, reared as a Crow woman, and eventually escaped and returned to her Ponca tribe. Sneve then follows the family through succeeding generations up to the present. This is storytelling at its best as Sneve combines history, legend, and autobiography to create a loving look at a fascinating people. Twenty-three black-and-white photographs are included.
