This book written by Sarah was a amazing journey of her life and her people. The fear and fate of her people as they had to adjust to the new way of living life. Telling of her fear, and devotion to the love of her people and to walk with her people during a fearful time, and to up hold honor and loyalty of her Grandfather and Father of the leaders of the Paiute People of the west. Many explanations of why there was so much resistance during these times. Awesome read of adventure and life that was lived by a Native American woman, that was a true story recorded.
