This was a re-read. I'm not sure how many times I've read this book, I love it so much. The minimalistic style, the story, the two women working together and supporting each other. I read (and liked!) Velma Wallis's other book, too, but this one is special.

Lovely story about betrayal, survival and courage. How two old women who were abandoned by their tribe during a time of extreme hunger. Two Old Women is based on an Athabascan Indian legend

This is a rather wonderful re-telling of a legend about two women who are abandoned by thier tribe. The book chronicles the women as they find that while surviving is hard, they can do it, and perhaps teach some lessons of thier own.

The older I get, the more I appreciate books that show older people, and especially older women, as competent and strong! Shows the value of experience and determination, even if youth and strength may be lessened.
