This remarkable book, written by a Navajo schoolboy, is a lyrical, beautiful work which affords a rare insight into the heart and soul of the American Indian.
—Los Angeles Times
It is the tale, graphically if uniquely written, of a young Navajo growing up astride two cultures, and it is wonderful to watch how he grows mentally, retaining his deep love of nature, his strong family ties, and the best of his Indian background. . . . Written in any other way, [it] would have been facts without feeling.
—Monterey Peninsula Herald
An engaging book, erratic, fresh and at times poetic.
—N. Scott Momaday, New York Times Book Review
