Reviews
Winner of the American Book Award!

"Hayes, now an English professor and historian of her mother's Lingit tribe, poignantly relates the sad details of her youth and early adulthood, adroitly interspersing these often-sordid memories with stories of tribal history that have been passed on for generations. This sometimes raw, consistently honest memoir is a rewarding, evocative, ultimately uplifting view of Native life."--Booklist

"One of the most important books to come out of Alaska. There have been other great memoirs by Alaska Natives, but few if any have been made with such disarming humor, such bravery and such warmth."--Anchorage Press
