This is a well written and plotted book This book tells the story of a small group of young Native Americans forced to endure great suffering at the hands of a few evil men. The character development, to me, was well thought out and kept you interested in their lives from beginning to end. There are sad moments that make you pause and even a few happy moments that brought a smile. Since its fiction, we don't know what really happened in that place. Though I guess it would have been impossible to write such a story as non-fiction. But they say the best fiction is rooted in fact, and if that is the case here, this story is definitely worth its five-star rating.

Such a sad story. I could literally feel what the characters were feeling. I can't even begin to comprehend how ignorant people could have mistaken simple illnesses for mental disorders that didn't even exist. Even though this is a story written by a person i can cleraly picture situations like this happening in real life.

This is possibly the best book covering this aspect of our history that I have ever read. I am Cherokee myself and am always seeking information on the plight of the Native American both in history and today. I love the information in this book and thank the author for sharing it.

This is one intense read! It’s a credit to the author that at times it’s difficult to believe that this is a work of fiction, that doesn’t mean that nothing like this ever happened, as most people shall readily recognize the Native American Indians were treated harshly and unfairly on many occasions. This book is intense and shines a spotlight on a part of history that a lot of people may find uncomfortable and so they choose to ignore it. I highly recommend this book to everyone, it’s really well put together and flows nicely whilst not detracting from the fact that for some this book that we refer to as fiction was in fact reality.

This is an excellent book that does not follow any standard fictional formula. The characters are well developed and the plot grips from the beginning to the end. Definitely worth reading.

An excellent Native American novel If you're a fan of Native American reading, you have to read this book. Not so much because it's a romance of a different kind, but because it's unforgettable.

Very intense book. I lost sleep over this one. I couldn't put it down at times. What they did to the Indians there was terrible.
