"Bruchac's story dares to go beyond the war in highlighting the postwar trauma that Chester experienced, demonstrated in a beautiful yet haunting illustration that symbolically captures his pain. This tale of a real-life Code Talker humanizes the main character by giving readers the whole picture of his connectedness to home and family, which is reinforced in Amini-Holmes' textured paintings, which resonate on an almost ethereal level. A perfect, well-rounded historical story that will engage readers of all ages."—Kirkus Reviews starred review
