KIRKUS REVIEW

More sensitive than some of the pioneer stories we've been reading lately is this one about pre–Gold Rush Oregon and a white boy brought up as an Indian. With the years of Crow residence that came after accidental separation from his Missouri family behind him, young Jim Keath is at a loss about his future. He helps his now-orphaned brothers and sisters settle in the Willamette Valley, and there's exciting reading in the joint Indian-frontiersman problems that must be solved before Jim can fully understand his dependence on Crow legend and medicine, re-channel it, and become a true white man.
