I read this book in my early adulthood–maybe about 25 years old or so and absolutely loved it. How I got through a 1408 page book is unknown to me. I actually loved it so much I often thought that I was her reincarnated version. LOL!
I just reread it and my new view was it was boring and way to long. I wanted to know more about her and what she thought as she traveled and what she learned. She was so ahead of her time as a woman let alone a native american. Her courage and leadership were amazing.
Why couldn’t she find her first born son? I guess the ending was made up so we don’t really know if she ever did or not.
