SHE WOULD NEVER FORGET WHAT SHE LEARNED THERE...
When shy, ten-year-old Lucy goes to live with her aunt and uncle at their mission school for Indians, she is surprised at the number of harsh rules and restrictions imposed on the Indian children. Why, she wonders, should the Indians have to do all the changing? And why is her aunt so strict with them? Then Raven, an Indian girl, runs away in protest, and Lucy knows she must overcome her timidness and stand up to her aunt -- no matter what the consequences.

Once again Gloria Whelan has taken a chapter from our past and transformed it into gripping, accessible, and historically accurate fiction.
