Sitting Bull's tomahawk

“Sitting Bull's Tomahawk provides its readers with a biography that enables the reader to connect with an individual whose efforts to obtain his goal fail. The historical information that complements this story provides insight into the causes of the Native American peoples' plight today. The mixture of story and fact will motivate and engage the audience to question the events of history. The use of the biography genre will assist young readers in understanding the relationship between history and the present. Highly Recommended.” —CM Magazine, 01/09 "...These books will be of great interest to readers in the elementary grades and would be a great addition to social studies programs. The format is a great way to present biographical and historical information and could certainly be used by students in assignments that might include that kind of information." —Resource Links, 06/08
