My Review:

This is an epic series. Long have I love the Native American people, and they are exquisitely written in this book and in this series. Set in the 1800's this story is still as relevant today as it was  then. The One True God's story is shared and lived out through Small Doe. The author worked in so much scripture and showed how one life, one testimony has impact on many. It's emotional, in depth, and beautifully written. As as series it's a set I want to keep on my shelves and share them as an extremely recommended read!
