KIRKUS REVIEW

O'Po, a boy growing up in the Omaha Indian tribe in the 1850's, took part in Nuge'teune, the great annual summer hunt of his tribe. O'Po's pilgrimage into the mountains to get his vision and his song, as Omaha custom dictated, took place in a period of peace with whites and hostility with the Sioux. O'Po watched the wagon trains of whites crossing the plains and helped in building the new lodge. Though this story offers much accurate regional material on Nebraska in transition it is too specialized for general appeal.
