Read in June, 2007

The final book in the trilogy. You join the main character as she nears the end of her life. Her life and the life of the society around her has experienced mighty change. In the beginning her family was one of the first, hearty souls to move into the untamed forest. There followed the replacement of forest with fields and the eventual creation of a town. The story engenders interesting reflection on the relative values ascribed to the different peoples and lifestyles experienced by the different characters, including a little girl taken from her white family and raised by an Indian family as one of their own.
