    Te Ata

    Although I read this book as an assignment for my upper level sociology class, it has been a thrill reading of Te Ata's life and her many experiences. I had another reason for reading this book; My g-g-g-grandmother was Chickasaw, and reading Te Ata's experiences helped fit a few pieces in my life's puzzle.

    The flow of the writer's style was brilliant and easy-to-read.
