School Library Journal Review

Gr 3-6-Three books that look at the exciting, often-controversial lives of famous figures from the Old West. Children are told about the important role Sitting Bull played in trying to improve the relations between the white and Native American peoples, and that he was an honored leader and war chief of the Hunkpapa Sioux, yet he died at the hands of a Native American. Buffalo Bill Cody was instrumental in changing people's view of the West through his creation of the well-known stage show. Wyatt Earp led an honorable and highly respectable life until the gunfight at the O.K. Corral and subsequent events turned him into an outlaw. Contrary to popular belief, he chose to use intimidation rather than guns to deflate otherwise volatile situations. Black-and-white and full-color paintings, photos, and drawings enliven each book, and fact boxes add interesting sidelights to the already inviting material.-Susan Shaver, Hemingford Public Schools, NE (c) Copyright 2010.
