Summary
"Born in 1876 on the Yankton Sioux reservation in South Dakota, Zitkala-Sa willingly left her home at age eight to go to a boarding school in Indiana. But she soon found herself caught between two worlds--white and Native American. At school she missed her mother and her traditional life, but Zitkala-Sa found joy in music classes. 'My wounded spirit soared like a bird as I practiced the piano and violin,' she wrote. Her talent grew, and when she graduated, she became a music teacher, composer, and performer."--Amazon.com
