Booklist Review

Reviewed with Yvonne Wakim Dennis' Sequoyah, 1770-18430 . Gr. 3-5. New volumes in the American Indian Biographies series tell about Indian leaders whose names, if not their stories, are well known. In 1821, Sequoyah first demonstrated to the Cherokee people that he had found a way to write the Cherokee language, employing methods that are still in use today. Best known for his "I will fight no more forever" speech, Chief Joseph surrendered just 40 miles from the Canadian border, where he had hoped to seek refuge for his band of Nez Perce. Following an introductory chapter that places each leader in time and place, each volume traces the leader's life, touching on tribal history and conflicts with the U.S. These very accessible titles are well illustrated with maps, photographs, and paintings, and they offer an introduction to American Indian history as well as specific information for reports. Readers may wonder why a Native American recipe is included in each volume, but the other appended information--a chronology, a glossary, a reading list, and Internet sites--is useful and appropriate. --Karen Hutt Copyright 2004 Booklist


School Library Journal Review

Gr 3-6-The critical or seminal events in the lives of these leaders are told in easy-to-read prose that is amplified by handsome works of art by past and contemporary American artists, colorful and dramatic maps, and games and recipes representative of their respective Nation. The dramatic chronology in Squanto includes reference to the kidnapping of the great Indian hero and 26 other Wampanoag men who were to be sold as slaves to Spain. Red Cloud includes illustrations of this Lakota leader's meetings with President Grant in Washington, DC, and in peace talks during his war over the Bozeman Trail. Attractively produced tributes to remarkable Native American men.-Jerry D. Flack, University of Colorado, Colorado Springs (c) Copyright 2010.
