I especially like that she lets those women "speak" by quoting them, and every time I read the book again, I am grateful that she does not comment on those quotations. I feel that by letting them stand for themselves, she makes it possible for the reader to listen to the spirit of these women.
Something else I like about this book is that it does not romanticize American Indian women, nor does it consider them primitives. Most of all, it does not look (down) upon their lives from a modern feminist point of view. To cut a long story short: if you want to gain an insight into American Indian women's lives of the past - read this book! The only other book about American Indians I enjoyed as much as this one is " Man's Rise to Civilization: The Cultural Ascent of the Indians of North America " by Peter Farb.
