"The book is packed with humor and affection and is an odyssey of unexpected twists and surprising conclusions." -- 1995 Newbery Award Selection Committee.
"A richly layered novel about real and metaphorical journeys." -- School Library Journal
"This story sings." -- Booklist
"In this funny and sad adventure story, readers fall in love with 13-year-old Salamanca, who is proud of her Indian blood and her country roots. Two stories weave together and teach the important life lesson that every story has two sides." -- Brightly
