Filled with photos documenting the transition, taken by the author and her family. The story is supported by research and a bibliography. As an elementary school student Edna (DeHass) Siniff spent many fun hours on the Dania (Now Hollywood) Reservation. On a family trip to Big Cypress Reservation the author and her brother were separated from their parents during a torrential rainstorm. Thanks to the generosity of Seminole families the two had a summer camp experience beyond all dreams.
