I enjoyed the showdown between the Buckhorn guys and the group. It was tense and engaging and quite entertaining at the same time.
My least favourite would probably be the start of Strong Heart's story as it threw me off a little bit and I had a hard time keeping up with all of the names.

My least favorite scene was the tale. I just felt it lasted too long and eventually I lost interest, had a hard time reading it but eventually made it through. My favorite part is when Sarah came back and wanted to help Tom and Myra.

I'm glad she came back, I enjoyed that part.

I found the second part of Strong Heart's story more enjoyable than the first.

I enjoyed the tale of Strong Heart. It was my favorite part in the book.

My favourite scene is when Sarah reappears and starts narrating the fateful story. It makes the others realise that she is a different person. I didn't like the scene where Sergei's father dies.

My favorite scene too was when Sarah reappeared after days of search and narrated what happened to her.

One of the most frustrating scenes for me were when Sarah first began explaining what happened during those eight days. Part of the problem for me was the punctuation issues and how the character perspective switch seemed a bit abrupt. However, that could have been just me as I had a tough time enjoying the read.

Did you have a favorite scene? How about a least favorite one?
My least favorite scene was when the thrower was smashed and thrown into the fire. I wanted so much for this relic to be dated and provide the needed evidence to convince Sergei of the timing of the existence of the people in the Pacific NW.

My favorite scene would be at the end where they are at the lake and realize that they have reached the vicinity of Marking Place and can likely find the evidence needed for Sergei. I wanted them to find it in this story but it provides fodder for a sequel.

My favourite scene was when Sarah nailed Roger and Raymond to the trees. I found it hilarious. Especially when they had to be supported by their colleagues so that they could maintain an upright position. Generally, the fact that such a young kid did this to two adult men.

I liked the scene where Strong Heart found her way through the cave and then emerged into a thunderstorm as a different person in a different time. It tied in with Sarah's reappearance and made me think about how she could somehow have lived as two people in different times.

I least liked the bickering between Myra and Sergei. It seemed to be a prelude to a romance and as such was overdone.

I really enjoyed when Strong Hart practice her throw until her hands hurt, that shows her willingness and her stubborn for never give up. The scene it really took me as a surprise and made me feel bad is the one where the atlatl was destroyed.

I felt very satisfied and more suspense in the dream of Sarah, the characters, and actions in her dream.
Yes, I have a dream! A dream that I will never give up.

I liked when Sarah showed them a drawing of a bear that was supposed to be extinct.
