Will Hobbs knows his subjects and his understanding of culture shines through in this story of 14-year-old Ute, Cloyd Atcitty, who is raised by his grandmother and sent to live in a group home in Durango. Cloyd struggles to find his identity. When he finds an ancient stone carved in the shape of a bear, he gives himself the name, Lone Bear, hoping that the stone will give him strength and help to change his luck. As much as I despised the protagonist at times, I stuck with this book and found the ending satisfying.
