Review

"The inspiring story of George Blue Spruce, Jr., the first American Indian dental surgeon, is vividly rendered within the pages of this book. . . . All the young—and not-so-young—Native people who don't believe that they can make anything of their lives should read this book."—Debra Utacia Krol, Native Peoples
(Debra Utacia Krol Native Peoples)

"This remarkable story, told engagingly by Blue Spruce, provides scholars and students alike with the details of how self-determination played out through the work of American Indian professionals."—Nicolas G. Rosenthal, New Mexico Historical Review
(Nicolas G. Rosenthal New Mexico Historical Review)
