In the mid-1800s thousands of pioneers crossed the western plains of the United States using the 2,000-mile pathway called the Oregon Trail. Minnow and her family live in one of the many native villages scattered across the plains. She has a lively sense of adventure and her favorite pastime is swimming in the nearby river where she rightly earns her nickname. Rose and her family are traveling in one of the many wagon trains making their way west. It's been a tedious journey with little excitement. Rose can't wait for something thrilling to happen.

On the banks of a rushing river that divides one way of life from another, two very different cultures come face-to-face, with life-changing results.In addition to writing children's books, Judy Young teaches poetry writing workshops for children and educators across the country.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Ali Fell
A note from the publishers: "Between 1843 and 1869 more than half-a-million people traveled west on the Oregon Trail. The journey was exceptionally difficult with 1 in 10 dying along the way. Many walked the entire 2,000 miles barefoot. Most native tribes were quite helpful to the emigrants." During this period, Rose is traveling in a wagon with her family while 10-year-old Minnow is living along a river in a small Native American village. The two girls see each other twice and there is an attraction between them. Soon after that, the Anglo camp is broken up; Rose keeps looking down the river as the wagons cross, hoping to catch sight of Minnow. An accident brings the two girls together. Although the girls cannot understand each other's speech, they manage to communicate and to bond. The author demonstrates both how different and how similar the two girls actually are. Judy Young is a good writer. The illustrations are exquisite in color, in style, and in their ability to stimulate feelings and imagination. The book has a jacket, a hard cover, and it is printed on high quality paper. Because Minnow and Rose is a great story, is an attractive book, and is of reasonable cost, this book might make a good gift. Minnow and Rose is part of the "Tales of Young Americans" series. The series has as its goal the telling of a good story that, at the same time, teaches children something about a period of American history. Since the publishers did such a good job with this book, it would seem worthwhile to check out some of the other titles in this series. Reviewer: Ali Fell
