This is one of my favorite books ever, even though I am in high school! I've always been fascinated with pioneers and Native Americans, and this book really made both cultures come alive for me. I was even able to be Mary Jemison for Halloween one year, a great perk of having blonde hair! I think another big draw for me was that this ACTUALLY HAPPENED! Yes, Lois Lenski took some creative liberties, but she explicitly states that in her forward. There is nothing anyone can say to make me not like this book!
