"Heidi loved the goats, but the prettiest of them all were Little Swan and Little Bear."
"The religion of the Indian is intimate and omnipresent. He feels himself as much a part of the supernatural world as are the nature gods of his own creation. No crisis of life, no activity affecting the welfare of individual or tribe is too trivial to have its place in religion, its special rite." (122)
