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.
