Description

A plain-spoken, appealing narrator relates the history of her parents - a Nevada silver baron who forced the Crow people to give up one of their most beautiful daughters, Gun That Sings, in marriage to him. With her mother's death in childbirth, so begins a heroine's tale equal parts heartbreak and strength. This girl has been born into a world with no place for a half-native, half-white child. After being hidden for years, a very wicked stepmother finally gifts her with the name Snow White, referring to the pale skin she will never have. Filled with fascinating glimpses through the fabled looking glass and a close-up look at hard living in the gritty gun-slinging West, readers will be enchanted by this story at once familiar and entirely new.

Professional reviews

"This adaptation of the classic fairy tale is superbly performed by Julia Whelan. A half-Native-American child is named Snow White by her wicked stepmother. With a sweet, youthful voice, Whelan captures Snow WhiteÕs desperation to be loved and her despair at suffering terrible abuseÑuntil she finally flees. Whelan then switches to a rough drawl to portray Snow White as a woman on the run, living a hard life in the Wild West. WhelanÕs voice reflects the evocative ambiance of this genre-crossing combination of fairy tale and Native American legend. The story itself, full of symbolism and poetic language, can be confusing. But WhelanÕs storytelling never falters as she brings out the enigmatic imagery of this thought-provoking tale. M.M.G. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine"
