In 1847 the Choctaw, themselves impoverished, raised $170 (the equivalent of more than $5ooo today) to aid the Irish, then in the throes of the great potato famine."-Publishers Weekly, Starred Review• Endorsed by the Choctaw Nation.• A Smithsonian Notable Book for Children, 1998.• Children's Books of Ireland BISTO Book of the Year Merit Award, 1999.
