My Thoughts On The Book: When I began reading this book I thought, "Oh no...a sappy love story about a political figure and a girl." I was far from correct on this story. It had so many layers it was hard to keep up with them sometimes. It drew you into the characters lives when you least expected it to, I always dreamed of teaching school on a reservation. This story was my dream in pen and ink. Sophia was everything I planned on being as a teacher and then some. I felt as if I knew her personally and then I felt as if I was looking in a mirror at myself. My heart bled for the Ponca Indians. I felt as if I walked each mile through the bad weather conditions with them. I felt as if I lost the same loved ones they did. Richmond as a way of stringing her story together where you don't want to put the book down. I read every chance I could like a man starving for food. It was a wonderful story about a not so wonderful time in United States History. This book is a must read and must own.
