Wolves

Wolves are weaved throughout the book. The author uses them often to show Sarah placing a name to her fear in order to overcome it and also to how time and distance are passing by mentioning their howls getting further and further away.

Cloak

The cloak is symbolic of Sarah's mother’s warm arms around her and keeping her safe. Furthermore it is the symbol of Sarah’s courage and metaphorical armor. Sarah clings to the cloak in the beginning of the book, but by the end it seems like she has moved past her attachment to it.

Indians

The Native Americans, referred to as Indians in the novel, present an alternative way of life for Sarah. They provide another family to Sarah and a means to grow up and see a new way of life different and yet the same as her own.
