KIRKUS REVIEW

Natachee's grandmother, the Old One, had had the greatest skill in their pueblo village as a potter. But now grandmother was blind. Perhaps Natachee could find and bring clay. But jealous Lupe, who wished to sell her own pottery, followed the child to try to claim her clay diggings. When Natachee found a way to elude Lupe, she was accused of witchcraft. But Natachee and the Old One together refute Lupe's charges, sell their pottery and discover that Lupe was the thief of the ceremonial silver cane which had been a tribal relic since the day when Abraham Lincoln had given it to their leader. A pueblo story in which the motivations of the characters are not particularly credible.
