'White's work is also perfect for historians who are themselves looking into more information and research on the Natives' lives during the colonial era ... White enchants all; I could not put this book down when I began reading it. The final verdict: Recommend.' Joshua Chanin, Reviewer's Bookwatch (www.midwestbookreview.com)
