Guide Review - Odd People by Shirley Bahlmann

I thought this book was interesting and learned some different things about the Native Americans. One thing that I learned was that people have different laws and what one person thinks in wrong is not wrong to another. That caused many of the conflicts with the Native Americans. I enjoyed this book but it was not one of the best that I have read.
