Description

Carrie Hill hates Indians. Indians killed her parents and ruined her life.
With nowhere else to go, fifteen-year-old Carrie signs on to help care for the family of Beaver Dick Leigh, an English trapper. To her dismay, Carrie discovers that Beaver Dick's wife, Jenny, is a Shoshoni Indian! But as Carrie's wounds heal under Jenny's gentle care, she begins to respect and love this kind woman.
Beginning each chapter with an excerpt from Beaver Dick Leigh's actual journals, Kristiana Gregory brings alive the people and the dramatic setting of a bygone era.

Review quote

"A thoroughly involving story. . . . An impressive first novel."--Kirkus Reviews
"Readers will relish each page."--Publishers Weekly
"Smashing. . . . . I am as impressed with the emotion Kristiana Gregory has packed into her novel as I am with her vivid and detailed picture of pioneer life in America in the 1870s."--Clyde Robert Bulla
