Another early Newbery Honor title, and a good one, but my reading experience would have been greatly enhanced by a pronunciation guide and a map. (I still have no idea how some of these names would be said, and I got a little bit lost about where the characters were traveling to and from and where the battlefront was, etc.) The writing feels a bit dated, but the story seems well told. Miller was acquainted with the ethnic groups and regions she wrote about, and seems to do a good job of portraying Albania and its various peoples and tribes - who are rarely found in children's books.
