Format: Paperback
There is a serious lack of understanding in America for Native Americans. In some areas there are acts of unwarranted hostility towards them. The attitude that the Indian tribes `got what they deserved' is all too common, though most Americans are saddened by their cruel treatment by the settlers and the US government. 'New Yesterdays, Changed Tomorrows" comes with a refreshingly well-balanced view of this history. Jim (the boy not the author!) finds he can scramble through the wall of an disused Victorian house into the past, where there is an Indian village. This feels like the wardrobe of C.S. Lewis or J. K. Rowling's station platform, but it's a modest device for time traveling. There, Dustu, a boy of his own age befriends him and Jim becomes mutually attached to the Cherokee villagers. Both the choice of the boys, and the author's clear and direct style of writing led me to believe that this story was written for 12-18 year olds to enjoy. The choice of a boy hero was admirable. We follow him with a growing understanding of the Cherokee Indians' plight. Jim alerts them, from his memory of history lessons, and shares his knowledge that the Cherokees would be driven out of their ancestral lands to Oklahoma, with a terrible loss of life. The villagers' response does not distort history But then, alas, the author has difficulty in having Jim witness a set of events that amplify the historical story. Understandably he ditches the hero and makes us follow other people--Seamus driven out of Ireland for example. The result of abandoning the hero created in me a real feeling of loss. Finally, in a desire to wrap things up, our hero returns to the world he left behind, but, having jumped ahead in time he is unable to find his own family.Read more ›

I really enjoyed this book. I love experimenting with different genres and themes because you never quite know what little gem you're going to find or get a taste for next. New Yesterdays didn't disappoint in this regard. I really didn't know what to expect but I was more than a little intrigued by the synopsis; A young boy travels back in time and is suddenly faced with the power to change the face of the future...to include his own.

This story is written beautifully with lots of facts that I found absolutely fascinating. I always used to read biographical works, always felt I should be learning something new from each new reading experience. One of the many great things about New Yesterdays is that I came away feeling like I'd gained an insight into the way of the Cherokee Indians, and what a beautiful, respectful and fascinating picture the story illustrates. The main characters were left for a while as the plot gained momentum and I missed their company but, what was fantastic, was that I easily recognised each one again when they returned and it was like they'd never been away! I do believe this is a shiny example of great characters.

I found New Yesterdays to be warming, entertaining and gripping and it even made me cry at one point! A very lovely read and I'm so glad I picked it up!
