Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

By turns lyrical, wise, and funny, this compelling novel, set in 16th-century America, tells the story of how one Native American boy turns handicap into an advantage as he crosses the often blurred boundaries between being a child and becoming a man.

Synopsis:

"Set in 16th century America, this richly imagined and gorgeously written rite-of-passage story has the gravity of legend . . . Dorris once again demonstrates that he is a brilliant and deeply humane writer whose words can show you something you have never seen."--"Booklist, " starred review.
