"Flora Gregg left her Oklahoma home in 1900, answering a call for teachers on an Indian reservation in northern Arizona. . . . Her book . . . is a simple but strangely moving document. She is good at description and a keen observer of people and customs." —Journal of Arizona History

"Gives a vivid picture, not only of tribal peoples in transition, but of the motives and methods of a dedicated, compassionate teacher in an era of forced Indian assimilation." —Books of the Southwest

"Delightful reading about an exotic life in a stupendous natural setting." —New York Times
