Praise

“Compelling reading for fans of roots rock and Native American history in middle school and up.” —School Library Journal

“An entertaining, enlightening history for music fans. Balahy’s loose, energetic drawings; imaginative layouts; and playful use of color make everything pop.” —Publishers Weekly

“Musicians with heart put their people before profits in an inspirational tale. Well-researched and well-paced, this book will introduce a new generation to the music and impact of Redbone.” —Kirkus Reviews (Starred review)

“In some eyes, the guys in Redbone, still the most successful Native American rock band this country has produced, are indeed superheroes. Not all heroes wear capes, and some wear buckskin.” —Houston Chronicle

“In the early sixties, Pat and his brother, Lolly, perform on the Sunset Strip, crossing paths with The Byrds, The Doors, and Jimi Hendrix, who gives the brothers the idea of forming ‘an all Indian band. That’d make this country sit up.’ The seed germinates and Redbone bursts forth. Staebler and Paoloni offer a lens onto aspects of the twentieth-century Native American struggle for civil rights and injustices like forced schooling and racist policing, as well as the 1968 birth of the American Indian Movement. Balahy’s art is particularly splendid and well-varied in style for the complex subject matter.” —Booklist 

Relates a compelling story extending much farther than solely rock music. Redbone the book enlightens readers both musically and culturally.” —People’s World
