Good reading for the lovers of western and Indian lore." Atlanta Constitution ". . . Hubbard's most important contribution is a story told through the mind and body of an American Indian.

St. Louis Post Dispatch "Hubbard's tale, based on fact, is quite believable and his use of American Indian lore should attract Tony Hillerman and Louis L'Amour fans." Library JournalAbout the Author:
With 19 New York Times bestsellers and more than 230 million copies of his works in circulation, L. Ron Hubbard is among the most acclaimed and widely read authors of our time. As a leading light of American Pulp Fiction through the 1930s and '40s, he is further among the most influential authors of the modern age. Indeed, from Ray Bradbury to Stephen King, there is scarcely a master of imaginative tales who has not paid tribute to L. Ron Hubbard.
