The author describes many events from her childhood. When she was a teenager in school at St. Francis Boarding School, she attended a pow-wow in February in the school's basketball gym. The man in charge was Lloyd One Star. She thoroughly enjoyed the dancing and her favorite was the eagle dance. The other events she describes were events that happened throughout her childhood. She incorporated them all into one exciting summer and changed some details to make them more appealing to young readers. She hopes that today's school children will enjoy reading about some Indian cultural similarities and differences between age groups, upbringing, education and experiences.
