Many of the children were illiterate, unable even to write their own names. He taught them using oral history and geography lessons.

Kirja-arvosteluja

Conroy on aikaisemmissa kirjoissaan onnistunut pysyttelemään melodramatiikan paremmalla puolella, jopa koskettamaan, mutta tämä kirja on floppi. Kamalaa. Kaksi tähteä sujuvuudesta, mutta ehkä sekin on liikaa.
