" I'd have to hand sell this, but I'm glad we added to the collection. " said.

" Beautifully illustrated true story of of a captured sailor off the PNW coast and his time with the tribe who held him. " said.

" Good graphic historical fiction based upon the real-life adventures of John Jewitt, a sailor and blacksmith who lived as a captive of the Mowachaht Indians for three years on the west coast of Vancouver Island. " said.

"Based on a British sailor's account, this book still conveys all the prejudices and limitations of that sailor's worldview. I don't know how accurate this book is, in terms of depiction of cultural practices that Jewitt did not understand or appreciate. The volume is entertaining, and perhaps historically accurate in terms of Jewitt's story -- but there was another side to this story (which, to be fair, the abuse and arrogance of traders was to some degree shown). Goldfield claims to have done research, yet is still writing from an outsider's perspective. The whole project is from an outsider's perspective, and that made me wonder -- what would life here be like from the inside? " said.
