KIRKUS REVIEW

A moving story of the last stand of the Paiute Indians, told through the extraordinary adventures of a lad who determined to save his beloved grandmother from the sentence of death to the old. In an effort to reach the Santa Barbara Mission, they stumbled into the perils of Death Valley. Months of wandering -- as Inoyo turned back to seek a horse, wanderings which brought him into violent conflict with desert and mountains, into friendship with a loyal young Spaniard, into futile attempt to bring some measure of understanding into relations between his people and the arrogant U.S. troopers, the settlers who coveted the Indian hunting grounds -- these provide as absorbing an Indian story as I've read for many a day. The author of Red Eagle has given her readers another first rate story of the Indians of the Old West.
