KIRKUS REVIEW

This gives us another good Indian book for boys. Sungi lived in Tenne in an Indian village but in the early nineteenth century the poor Red Man knew that he would have to move on and towards the end of the book you realize that they will push off for the West to what is probably Arkansas. In the meantime Sungi grows up, trains his eye for shooting, overcomes fear, finds the stolen horses and earns the right to drop the nickname that he hates. It is particularly interesting to learn of the new Cherokee alphabet which was worked out by Sequoya in 1821.
