I first read this book and Thomasma's other books in 4th grade, and in the 13+ years since then have continued to love them; full of adventure, history, and amazing spirit. I recommend this book for all children, teens, and even adults looking for an inspiring read.

I got this book several years ago and it has always been one of my favorite books. I've always really loved Nativa Americans and culture and this book really captures it all. Having the reader feel as though they are all part of Naya's adventures.

The story brought this young girls struggles to life! It blends history with geography teaching lessons for life in each chapter. Our family bought the book on tape for a trip and each member enjoyed it. A great summer read for education and fun!
