The book is a masterpiece of creative interpretation of extensive archival work, as Gale left no diaries or letters. Clearly, De Danaan is moved by Gale's life and legacy. "Surely my life is as insubstantial, as ephemeral, as was Katie's. I will become like her, another mostly anonymous wraith, a specter who will walk the shores with all the others."
But De Danaan underestimates her work; this volume is an act of resurrection, well worth the contemporary reader's immersion in another life and time.

"You are drawn into her life from the very first page as each political, economic or cultural example provides a snapshot of life. It It is not just a biography of Katie Gale's life as LLyn De Danaan situates her narrative soundly in Coast Salish history, and how it is influenced and changed by American history. " Jacky Moore -Women's History Review, June 30, 2014
