"There is eloquent beauty in this story of a young hunter who marries a woman from the Buffalo Nation. When his relatives send her away . . . her husband follows . . . In text and illustrations, Goble's story exhibits a quiet simplicity, respect for nature and the power of love".--School Library Journal, starred review.
