During Naya Nukis trip back home she had many interseting events happen to her.Some brought her self astem down on making it safely home others encouraged her to keep moving.No matter what happened Naya Nuki held her head high and kept moving to her journy home.

You won't put this down. I read this book in our Talented and Gifted class with a group. I think this book is an awesome book it seemed like were with Naya Nuki during her life-threatening journey. Kenneth Thomasma did a great job writing this book on a true adventure. This story takes place in 1801. An eleven year old girl named Naya Nuki of the Shoshoni Tribe was taken prisoner along with her best friend, Sacajawea, and many others. Naya Nuki escapes from the enemy tribe without getting caught. But you won't believe what obstacles she encounters along the way of her life and death run for freedom. She meets a grizzily bear and barely gets away. She almost walked over a cliff. Naya Nuki became sick from food poisoning from old buffalo meat. She is always thinking positive and manages to survive. You have to read this book to find out what other obstacles she encounters. I will tell you something, she see her own tribe from a tall tree. But will she make it? I think this book is a good book for all ages because it is about survival and exciting from cover to cover. Enjoy.

A good look at Native American life in the past, but the underlying message is good for even today.

I read this boo in the Talented and Gifted Program. I liked it so well I finished it in two days. It is really scary for an eleven year old to travel a thousand miles over Montana and North Dakota alone. Why would an eleven year old girl do that - she was captured by an enemy brave. It was really remarkable that she could escapte, but her escape isn't the end of this story. She encounters the mighty grizzily bear and suffers from the flu. After all this she was still determined to get to her tribe. I think Naya Nuki is an incredible girl. She is brave and bold to try to escape from the hands of the enemy tribe. I would recommend this book for all ages because everyone likes a survival story. A Fourth Grade Student

We read Naya Nuki in our gifted and talented class. It's a really good book because Naya Nuki encounters many dangers and she still survives. After Naya Nuki was captured by an enemy Indian, she was forced to be a slave. She refused to be held captive and she was determined to escape. She traveled 1,000 miles alone. She was nearly attacked by a bear, she found an Indian burial platform. She traveled through what now are the states of Montana and North Dakota on her incredible journey back to her people. I think all ages should read this book because this book gives people an opportunity to learn what it was like for Naya Nuki and her people.

I first read this book in Talented and Gifted class when I was ten. We had it as an assignment, but it didn't seem like an assignment. It seemed like we were right there because Ken Thomasma made it seem like we were right there with Naya Nuki. Just imagine if you were eleven years old and you saw a child and his dog tied to his sled and dead! Or, if you were traveling by yourself on foot for more than a 1,000 miles just to get back home. Writer Ken Thomasma bases this incredible tale on actual life and death situations that Naya Nuki overcomes while she is on her daring journey back to her people. I recommend this book for anyone of any age. Even adults will find this book heartwarming.

I read this book in our Talented and Gifted Class for a group book. This is a great story because she escapes an enemy tribe and she survives more than 32 days alone! It is about an eleven year old girl named Naya Nuki who has been captured by an enemy tribe. This story is based on an actual event. This happened in 1801 which is more than 200 years ago. It is a survival story. It takes place in Montana and North Dakota. I think all ages should read this book because everyone loves a survival story. I wish this book was made into a movie beecause most adults and kids gave this book five stars. If it was a movie, I would buy it the first day it came out.

I had to read Naya Nuki for a Psychology class in college. I wasn't sure what it was about when I ordered it, but the title fascinated me. I had trouble putting this book down and turning to my studies. I even took this book to a third grade class I substitute in and read them a few chapters out of it. They thoroughly enjoyed the little bit I read to them. It is truly a remarkable story of a girl who gets captured, becomes a slave and devises her own plan for escaping. She makes a journey through North Dakota and Montana to find her family and the tribe she belongs to and so dearly loves. I highly recommend this book to children ages 9 and up and to teachers to read to their students. It will definitely keep the students interest going.
