"Live in a good way" is an ancient Ute saying, which permeates this beautiful story of Cloyd's coming of age as he experiences white man's cruelty and humanity to Native Americans. Cloyd is 14 and troubled--he's matched up with Walter, a former rancher who's lonely and depressed after losing his wife. The ever-wonderful George Guidall relates the story like an old-time storyteller. He makes Walter, an old fellow filled with wisdom and sage expressions, sound as if he's addressing Cloyd and reader alike. It's possible to hear Cloyd evolve as he grows up, experiences a bear hunt, makes adult decisions, and learns and teaches the lessons of life. The award-winning story couldn't be improved in its audio presentation. S.G.B. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN 97]
