Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Gisela Jernigan
Although 12 year old Russell lives in St. Paul Minnesota and enjoys football, hockey and computers, his Winnebago (or Hochunk) heritage is still an important part of his life and that of his extended family. In this addition to the excellent "We Are Still Here" series, Russell's grandmother explains how seasonal activities relating to the growing and processing of corn, are integrated into their family life. The many color photos and lively text show activities such as planting the corn in the spring, harvesting, and finally celebrating with a family feast. A map, glossary, further reading section and corn soup recipe are also included.
School Library Journal
Gr 3-6In an effort to continue the traditions of the Hochunk (Winnebago) people, Hunter follows 12-year-old Russell through the year as he learns about his people's special relationship with corn. Russell is a hard-working student in St. Paul, Minnesota, fond of computers, hockey, and football. The cover photograph shows a thoroughly modern boy hoeing in a corn field, dressed in shorts, T-shirt, black tennies, and backward hatillustrating the balance between the contemporary and traditional that Russell is learning to live, under the careful guidance of his elders. The boy and his family raise their corn on a friend's farm some distance south, where they all participate in the cycle of growing and experience the bounty of the earth. The author uses Indian terms and words throughout the text and explains each briefly without interrupting the flow of the prose: "The next time Russell visits the farm, it is July, called Wa-xoch-wee-dda, or the corn tasseling moon." The book contains legends and history, as well as detailed information about tending, harvesting, and drying the corn. Nearly every page has a large full-color photograph or two that complement the text and make this book particularly inviting. Four Seasons of Corn does much to enlighten readers and dispel stereotypes.Lee Bock, Brown County Public Libraries, Green Bay, WI
