I liked this book for two reasons. First, I thoroughly enjoyed this book because of the strong female main character. She does many untraditionally feminine things such as when she “jumped off [her] horse and took a careful aim with [her] rifle at the pan Jason Upright’s wife held in her hands”(5). I am currently reading this book to a few fifth graders and they all thought the main character was a boy based on the character’s actions. It was refreshing to see such strong female portrayal in books that are accessible to children. The second reason I enjoyed this book was because of the language. I enjoy how this book explains the surroundings and weather in a way so that the readers can get a better vision for the environment. For example, “The wind swirled high in the treetops” (13). The language is very simple and easy to understand which makes it a perfect read for my students as many of them are still struggling with comprehension. The main message of this book is to explain the horrific events of the past in hopes that it will not repeat in the future as well as educating readers on the events that followed after white settlers forced their way into the Indian tribe’s homeland.

It is the spring of 1877 when 14-year-old Sound of Running Feet, daughter of Chief Joseph of the Nez Perce, sees white people panning gold in the little creek that feeds the Wallowa River, and brings word of them to her father.

Chief Joseph's daughter, Sound of Running Feet, tells the story of the Nez Perce's flight from their homeland in the Wallowa Valley, their pursuit by the U. S. Army, and eventual surrender as they attempt to reach safety in Canada. Most characters are based on actual Nez Perce and are drawn from recollections of survivors. The manuscript was completed by Elizabeth Hall after Scott O'Dell's death.
