The Sacrifice by Diane Matcheck


The Sacrifice by Diane Matcheck

An Apsaalooka (Crow) Indian girl has lived her life as a virtual outcast, overshadowed by her dead twin brother, who it was prophesied would become a great leader. One night, she sets off on a journey to prove to her people and herself that she is the one destined for greatness.


Matcheck makes a stunning debut in a survival story that reveals not only the dangers of the wilderness but the risks to the human heart . . . Readers will not only have a sense of place, they will be gripped by many of the same emotions. - Starred, Booklist

[A] thoroughly credible portrait of an arrogant girl's metamorphosis into a teachable, worthy woman, whom readers will believe is indeed capable of greatness. - Publishers Weekly
