I enjoy anything that has to do with Native American culture and I was not familiar with this tribe at all. It is definitely a time travel to think what southern California is like now. Tacu was brave and I don't think I could have went through this period of initiation like he did. I liked the patience of his mentor Takoda. I also liked when he gave him the nickel and he had no idea what this little disc was. My favorite quote was, " As you live, be what you are as faithfully as you possibly can--take upon yourself all the responsibility of your role willingly. But when it is time for that role to end--accept it with courage and respect for the Creator, and move on to the next." The Creator is in charge.

A very easy read and thought provoking. It makes me dream of simpler times.
