    Ray begins her biography of Sarah Winnemucca with an 1883 speech Sarah gave in Christ Church, Philadelphia. Interspersing selected quotes from that speech into her own third-person narrative, Ray presents Sarah's life from her birth as Thocmetony in 1844 to her death in 1871. Early in Sarah's life, her grandfather recognized her innate ability to grasp languages and encouraged her to learn English. She did but then found herself caught between two worlds—the whites and the Paiutes—and not appreciated by either. Throughout, Sarah remained a peacemaker, although her attempts were often met with deceit and heartbreak. Ray's descriptive language and her evocative mixed-media illustrations combine to create a moving story. Especially captivating are the paintings depicting the harshness with which the Paiutes contended. Significant back matter, including a hand-drawn colored map, concludes.
