Narrator Salome Jens shapes her characters with subtlety and respect. Variations in pacing, intonation and inflection define Winona Pathfinder, an aging Sioux medicine woman, and Meggie O'Connor, Winona's psychiatrist. Jens presents Meggie with a resonant, purposeful voice that conveys maturity, insight and competence. Meggie has a forward-moving energy that suits well her professional life. Jens's Winona commands respect by speaking slowly, with carefully chosen words, in the hardly detectable accent of a person fluent in other languages. For Winona, who uses their sessions to teach Meggie about Native beliefs, Jens creates an aura of stubborn dignity, authority and wisdom by using the words as well as the silences.
