This story of the tribulations of early reservation life that led to the modern-day triumphs of the Mescalero people also offers a rare glimpse at the strengths of education at Carlisle, largely remembered for its flaws.
"œThe trials of war, of love and loss can crush the spirits of many, but Skeeter is proof that heroes do exist-that forgiveness and understanding are there for those who give it half a chance. An adventurous and touching story, this debut novel will find a permanent place in the reader's heart. Hats off to Candace Manley."-Steven Law, author of The True Father
