From the dust jacket- "Unhurried as a Navajo ceremonial, it is a tale both grave and joyous. And from the opening day, when Doli peeps timidly from behind the folds of her mother's skirt, to the end, when she walks between her father and mother, proud in the knowledge of being a true Daughter of the People, she is a very real little girl."
