"[An] engaging and insightful book. . . . The author steers a thoughtful course through this material: her prose is lucid, her judgments carefully weighed.

"A valuable case study and an important contribution to American Indian and educational history."--American Indian Quarterly--American Indian Quarterly
"An inspiring and illuminating case study that should be included in the library of anyone interested in Indian-white relations and Indian history."--Western Historical Quarterly--Western Historical Quarterly
