    " Excellent historical fiction. Distressing but I imagine quite real. "

    " If I had not grown up in Klamath I would have not liked this book at all. I didn't like the way it was written (the story line is too simplistic) although the content was pretty accurate as to how I remember the Chiloquin Indians' dismal situation & way of life during the 60's-70's. "

    " Having grown up with this as part of my own history, this book was amazing. Yes, it's fiction. Even Steber says "the book...does not exist." But what a fascinating "look" at what happened, and the effect it had. "
