The first half of this book dragged a bit, but about half-way through it got really interesting. It's a fiction book, based loosely on tribes in India who shun modern life. (In real life there are reservations set up for the tribes and although some of them do adopt modern ways, there are several who still live the way their people have always lived.) Uido has just been selected as the first female spiritual leader for her tribe. (Kind of the tribe's healer.) Her little brother gets sick and none of her medicines work, so she makes the choice to take him to the island where modern civilization is to see if they can help.
Her choice makes some of her tribe lose faith in her and in their ways.
