Such a beautiful story about faith and perseverance. Love the historical bits and such a beautiful ending. I appreciated the fact they added a note about the adversity the Native Americans endured.


My fourth grader loved it.

My girls (ages 7-11) and I all enjoyed this one. It told a part of history that I didn’t know much about, and had a really good subplot about honesty.
