I Also Recommend:
Beautiful, detailed illustrations including the cover art will draw young readers to this novel. This is another wonderful tale in the Kaya series of books. Kaya learns a very valuable lesson in sacrifice. The characters in this book "1764 Kaya's Hero: A Story of Giving," including Kaya's family, (Toe-Ta, Eetsa, Wing Feather & Sparrow, and Brown Deer) her relatives, (Pi-Lah-Ka and Kautsa - Eetsa's parents and Kaya's grandparents) and her friends (Two Hawks, Running Alone & Light On The Water, and Swan Circling) make real this fascinating and heart-warming story. Readers will learn new vocabulary from the Nez Perce glossary at the end of the book. An example of a vocabulary word is parfleches (par-fleshes) meaning bags to hold dried food for winter.
