Chipeta was a strong, wise woman who played a major role in the history of the Ute Indian tribe and the United States in the 19th century. And yet, she has remained elusive for more than a century, unknown not only to many historians, but also to the general public. Through this inspiring narrative, we discover a remarkable story about an extraordinary woman as Krudwig brings to life one of the key Native American figures of history.Awards WonMountains and Plains Booksellers Association - Finalist in the Children''s Chapter Book category 2004
