[It] shows a well-researched scientific background regarding the mining and northwest history that make up the foundation of this story. Steeped in history, one of the best things about this tale is how it advocates keeping traditions alive in an ever-changing world. I found that to be one of the most important messages of the book.” is on its way to its sixteenth anniversary, having accumulated over two million followers along the way.
