Good Native American Children's Book.
Buffalo Song is a story that takes place in the 1870s. It tells of a how the buffalo, a spiritual animal for Native Americans, was hunted by white hunters into extinction. One particular herd of buffalo was killed and only the tongues of the buffalo were taken, leaving the remaining of the buffalo to decompose in the field. But one small calf of this herd hid in the bushes and was spared. The calf didn't leave her dead mother's side until a small boy and his father found her weak and starving. They took the calf to a buffalo orphanage and from there; the buffalo and their human protectors go on a dangerous journey to find a permanent home. In my opinions this book is a great read that would interest older elementary aged students (5-8th grade). It gives some general insight of the history of Native American people and I would truly recommend this book to others.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
