Episodes in her life are compellingly described by Rivera, whose readings on the Dene, Chippewa, and Inuit make for an imaginative reconstruction of a girl’s nomadic hunting life 300 years before the natives came into contact with European traders. This is a fine and often gripping story. While some of the early scenes may be uncomfortable for sensitive readers, most will be drawn in as Aneze struggles for survival, independence, and belonging.
