Outstanding book, an outstanding adventure of the young Native slave, who was not allowed to even have a name do to Chinook custom. The beautiful and intelligent Nez Perce was already captured as a slave and thus could not hold property, and names and thoughts were property according to Chinook custom.
The girl grows into a young woman and marries a white man, and he is able to name her, Two Blankets. An outstanding story and a true heroine. This is a must read.
