In the Footsteps of Crazy Horse by Joseph M. Marshall III
This book is going to need a little help finding and audience, but when it does they are going to love it. Coming of age, road trips, history, culture all work so well in this slim text.
This is an important book to share with kids. I found myself stopping to look up the memorials and historical sites as I was reading. This is not the history I was taught in school. It’s so much more personal and authentic.
Please read the excellent review published on the American Indians in Children’s Literature site.
