McNickle writes excellent prose, but what I like most about his novels is his grasp of human nature. Perhaps because of his mixed heritage, he allows that people often do all the wrong the things for all the right reasons. This is not a book of racial hatred, but of deep misunderstanding.
This is a fairly straight-forward narrative. McNickle does not make as much use of spiritualism and ancient beliefs as some of the modern Native American writers. I think he was targeting the non-Indian audience and trying to create a better understanding of his own culture. If so, he succeeds admirably.
