“I found this book to be deeply moving, beautifully written, heartbreaking, and affecting. It’s short, but the prose makes you feel like you are being transported along the pages. Like most Americans, I feel like my history education is severely lacking since textbooks seem to gloss over all the atrocities America committed against marginalized people. I never knew about these tiny communities found on remote locations off the mainland USA. What the author describes among the communities is very dark and alarming for sure—I definitely believe we must call out the horrors inflicted upon people within their own communities. But it doesn’t mean these people deserved what happened to them in the end. The fact that westerners in general think that people all over the world must adhere to their societal expectations, or else be classified as barbaric or mentally incapacitated, is barbaric in itself. This community was targeted based on their skin color, isolation, and lack of association with the mainland community. They did nothing deserving of the atrocities inflicted on them.”
