This is one of those books that is just so heavy that calling it 'good' feels wrong. It leaves me feeling very tired and emotionally drained.

Really great book. A book with a different pace...that celebrates the strength of women...while telling the tale of the colonization of the United States. The wise native grandmothers and grandfathers, fathers and mothers, daughters and sons being killed and slaughtered, all the while the land and traditional ways of mainland America being ripped apart. It's the stories you and I were not taught in school. Not everything is as it seems. Very enjoyable and humbling book.
