About the author

Agnes V Ranney, as far as I am aware, has written just the one book, a coming of age story about a half Nez Percé boy, living in Idaho during the troubled times when settlers were moving into the North West.

Finding the book
Both hardback and paperback editions are easy to find, and usually very reasonably priced. The book was not published in the UK.
