Not Card's best work, but certainly not his worst either - and well worth reading
In this book, Alvin follows the lives of the Red Indians as they struggle aginst the onslought of the White settlers driving them out of their lands, and their own struggle of choosing war or peace. In the course of the book, Alvin learns to "see" more than meets the eye, to understand more of his "knack", and begins to realise how he should fit into the grand scheme of life.
The story is also immensely real and emotional. I was nearly in tears at the end of it!
