Any additional comments?
My wife read the book, and when she heard the epilogue used as the prologue, she was disappointed for me, because she got a second set of insights by learning the background after reading the adventure. I see her point, but it's too late for me, since the cat's out of the bag. I didn't know any better, so it was O.K. for me. If I could hear it again for the first time, I would skip past the prologue, then go back and listen to it later, get the benefit of additional insights to stimulate even more consideration about this saga.

What does Nick Podehl and Amy Rubinate bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Amy Rubinate and Nick Podehl do justice to the superbly developed characters in this captivating story. The book is written and narrated with such skill that the listener begins to see through the eyes of the boarding school students and feel with the heart of each character. It would be hoped that this book would be added to Junior High and High School Reading lists and included in classroom discussions.This neglected chapter of the history of Native Americans has waited too long to be told. It's audience reaches far beyond young adult readers. In addition to adding to our cultural awareness, this compelling story is difficult to set aside both while listening and after.
