Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This is a wonderful addition to the "American Indian Biographies" series. The name Squanto is familiar in the annals of American history because he helped early settlers at Plymouth, Massachusetts. This account is a more complete life story. Artwork depicting historic events is used throughout the book. The book gives readers a better understanding of Wampanoag Village life, the effect of the first meetings with white men native life, and the various ways in which the Indians helped the European settlers. Explorers took Squanto to Europe, perhaps to be sold as a slave. Instead, Spanish priests rescued him. He learned to speak English and back in New England became an interpreter and guide. The book features a chronology of events, glossary, bibliography, list of internet sites, index, and historic sites to visit. 2004, Blue Earth Books, Ages 8 to 12.

Gr 3-6-The critical or seminal events in the lives of these leaders are told in easy-to-read prose that is amplified by handsome works of art by past and contemporary American artists, colorful and dramatic maps, and games and recipes representative of their respective Nation. The dramatic chronology in Squanto includes reference to the kidnapping of the great Indian hero and 26 other Wampanoag men who were to be sold as slaves to Spain. Red Cloud includes illustrations of this Lakota leader's meetings with President Grant in Washington, DC, and in peace talks during his war over the Bozeman Trail. Attractively produced tributes to remarkable Native American men.-Jerry D. Flack, University of Colorado, Colorado Springs Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
