Бледолики срещу бледолики в “Равнините на Абраам” на Кърууд:
Носталгията е голяма работа. При всяко ходене у дома, във Видин, хвърлям поглед на поразкъсаните три тома на “Синовете на Великата мечка” и им се заканвам, че пак ще поемем из прерията с Твърдокаменния Харка Нощното око Стрелеца по бизони Убиеца на вълци Ловеца на мечки Токай-Ихто, но все не смогвам.

I am in agreement with so many other reviewers of this book. It is a book I read while in high school, now decades later I still remember reading it and absolutely loving it! So many books we can read and forget we have read it. This book is one of those few, where it takes you on this marvellous journey and educates you at the same time, it became one of those friends, in a way, that influenced my life for the better, and because of that, won't be forgotten either.
