Taken from real life accounts, this fictionalized story follows 4 American Indians who were taken from their homes and sent to a boarding school. There they suffered abuse and discrimination and were forced to abandon their heritage.
This was such a sad story and yet it is important for students to know about what happened. My school only goes through 5th grade and due to the abuse, murder, and suicide attempts I would be leery of having it in my collection but it would be good for a junior high or high school collection.
