    A creative presentation of clashing cultures

    I happened upon this beautiful manuscript in a used book store while I was hunting for children's books to put in my classroom's library (5th grade). The Ledgerbook of Thomas Blue Eagle tells the childhood story of a fictitous Lakota boy. His earliest experiences take place before the coming of the Whites and presents daily life, a vision quest, and a tragic encounter with an enemy tribe. As an older boy Blue Eagle experiences the coming of the Anglos and the clash of the two cultures. Blue Eagle is then taken to 'the edge of the world' to attend the Carlisle Indian School in Pennsylvania so that he can learn the ways of the Whiteman. But Blue Eagle longs to return home to his family on the Great Plains. The book is writen as a diary might be done by one whose second language is English. The big, bright, beautiful illustrations, done by Adam Cvijanovic seem to have been inspired by sketches done by Native-Americans of the late 1800s. Mr. Cvijanovic's work makes the quality of this book five star. The Ledgerbook of Thomas Blue Eagle has easily read text that accurately portrays the traditional Dakota culture. This is simply a great book for young and old alike. I consider The Ledgerbook of Thomas Blue Eagle one of the gems of my growing classroom library.
