KIRKUS REVIEW

Story of Droncho Charlie, who was captured by the Indians for his yellow hair, and made a member of the tribe. He spent one glorious summer among the Klamath Indians, learning their way of life, and putting all his white boy's life behind him. Then he heard threat of massacre which would involve his people, and he knew he was white and not an Indian, and with the help of an Indian girl and the pony that he had helped capture he escaped. Not always realistic, in its rather rosy visioned picture of Indian life.
