My rating: 3 of 5 stars
THis is an old story written down by Grace Moon. It is is fiction inspired by what I hope would be some solid research or at least someone who spent time with the native AMericans. I googled some of the terms and found nothing. None the less it was an interesting piece of fiction.

Kawah is a young brave justy turned 18 and is of the habit of going out around sunrise to observe the view.One day he is jumped by two braves from the Totomec tribe.
