Riassunto: "This deeply moving work quietly and effectively underscores the drama and pathos of a little-known historical episode. In 1847 the Choctaw, themselves impoverished, raised $170 (the equivalent of more than $5ooo today) to aid the Irish, then in the throes of the great potato famine." -Publishers Weekly, Starred Review‚Ä¢ Endorsed by the Choctaw Nation.‚Ä¢ A Smithsonian Notable Book for Children, 1998.‚Ä¢ Children's Books of Ireland BISTO Book of the Year Merit Award, 1999.
