"Johnston has created a story that radiates compassion, humor, and hope ... [His] story is essentially about the boys' refusal to be victimized. Unwittingly they learned the ways of psychic survival in adverse circumstances. In being rebellious, defiant, and insubordinate, they retained a sense of their own Indian identity and self-worth that made survival possible"-- American Indian Quarterly.
