User Review  - Claudia Putnam - Goodreads

Always a little dicey writing about Native Americans when you're not, but this is a classic all the same. Read full review

User Review  - Bern J - Goodreads

A thought provoking, worthwhile book. Informed views of Native American and Anglo cultures and the differences in their beliefs, world views and mind sets. Impressive that Waters wrote the book over 70 years ago. Read full review
