Reviews

"Velma Wallis gets applause for good-hearted and courageous honesty in a good book that contributes to the understanding of a little-understood part of America."

--Cedar Rapids Gazette


"Velma tells a kick-ass story of growing up Gwich'in. If you want to know the truth about being Indian in a white-dominated world, read this book."

--Duncan Sings-Alone, Cherokee storyteller, author of Sprinting Backwards


"This book made me laugh, cry in anger, feel elated, and awakened in me again the sometimes sleeping, but always-fighting spirit to be myself as an Indian ...the reading was an evening of pure joy."

--Long Standing Bear Chief, Blackfoot Nation
