From a family so poor that an eight-dollar monthly check was a godsend, Hifler shares the profound lessons she learned from her extended family of elders and from the Great Spirit. The richness of the landscape is woven through the book in a poignant tribute to nature and to the universal magic of childhood."@en ;
