Review quote

"Matcheck makes a stunning debut in a survival story that reveals not only the dangers of the wilderness but the risks to the human heart . . . Readers will not only have a sense of place, they will be gripped by many of the same emotions."- Starred, "Booklist" "Good characterization coupled with a tight plot and authentic setting make this book a good choice not only for readers interested in early Native American life but also for readers looking for a good coming-of-age or adventure story." - "VOYA" "[A] thoroughly credible portrait of an arrogant girl's metamorphosis into a teachable, worthy woman, whom readers will believe is indeed capable of greatness." - "Publishers Weekly"
