Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Sometimes a book surprises a reader, sneaking up on him. That is just what happened with Colton s new work. This is a great book! It s about women s sports; it is about high school kids; it s about racial divisions between whites and Indians. Colton spent a year with the girls varsity basketball ream at Hardin High School in Crow, MT. Crow is a barren town in eastern Montana, close by the Crow Indian Reservation, that lives for high school basketball. Colton, a former major league baseball player, was taken with the basketball team s drive to gain a state championship for the first time and focused on a Crow girl who hoped to be the first girl from her high school to earn a basketball scholarship to college. Colton deals well with the racial division between the white girls and the Crow members of the team. In spending a year with the team, the author sees all the highs and lows (and there are many of both) in the ultimately unsuccessful quest for the state championship. This microcosm of high school athletics is highly recommended for all public and high school libraries. William Scheeren, Hempfield Area H.S.

The prayers, songs and poetry presented in Worldwide Worship are drawn from classical and religious texts as well as the works of poets. This examines worship traditions in many different religions, illustrating common qualities in worldwide worship and including a rich blend of prayer, song, and poetry reflecting religious appreciation and celebration. A fine inclusion for any religious library.
