Really enjoyed this account of an amazing resourceful woman who survived by learning from her environment and discovering a great depth within herself.

Story is told in her own words as related to Pat Little Dog and Pat adds tidbits from her perspective. Reenforces knowledge is all around us if we open to listening and seeing.
