Simple But Authentic and Enriching
Maybe. This book is a bit hard to classify as it certainly has its charm but also a flatness both in the writing and in the delivery. Yet it has a ring of authenticity in relating the Plains Indian lifestyle that was informative and evoked respect for the heritage of a culture that is all but gone.
This is a nonfiction biography ending at the age of fifteen.
The odd flatness of the narration was perhaps forced by the nature of the writing. It has an awkwardness reminiscent of a translation, but in this case it is primarily a cultural translation rather than linguistic.
Yes, definitely. It might even be interesting for both a parent and child to undertake together.
