This is a twist on the average Western. The author focuses on the complicated relationship among whites, blacks, and Indians in the pioneer era. She does a nice job of showing her characters as multi-dimensional, not just a stereotype based on race. The story is made even more enjoyable by the narration by Mr. Kamish. He injects a flavor to his reading which places the listener squarely in the scene and provides additional interest to the story.
