Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Children's Literature
Besides focusing on the life and history of Sitting Bull and the Sioux people, this volume in the "America in the Time of" series recounts many other people and events of the turbulent period of 1840 to 1890. The eighteen brief chapters in this colorful, large-format book present information about--cowboys, railroads, wild west shows, outlaws and European immigrants, as well as on Sitting Bull and Native American issues. The imaginative use of many color drawings, maps, reproductions of old paintings, inserts and sidebars make this a book that could appeal to a wide audience, especially to those who are more visual learners. An introduction, index, maps, short bibliography, list of places to visit, timeline and list of famous people of the time are included. 2000, Heinemann Library, Ages 9 to 15, $24.22 and $8.75.
