Product Details

Praise

★”Utterly vital in its historical prowess, essential in its portraits of lived experiences.”–Kirkus (starred review)

★”Ojibwe author Treuer unblinkingly depicts ‘Indian life rather than Indian death’ in this young readers adaptation. . . Using approachable language and eye-opening firsthand accounts, Treuer unfailingly puts Indigenous people at the center of their own history to prove that ‘Indian cultures are not dead and our civilizations have not been destroyed.’”Publishers Weekly (starred review)

★ “[T]his one is special, for it offers an examination of an essential subject: life in Indigenous America. The Ojibwe author seamlessly addresses his material in a hybrid fashion that’s part history, part reportage, and part memoir, and Keenan ensures all is accessible to a younger audience…[F]ascinating. . . excellent. . . The history related here is necessary for all Americans to understand, and Treuer’s personalized accounting ensures that readers will learn it with both their minds and hearts.”-Booklist (starred review)

“A well-researched approach to North American history that features personal narratives from Indigenous-Americans.”--School Library Journal
