Editorial Reviews

Review

Calico by Allison Bruning is the best Native American fiction I have read in a long time. She beautifully takes the reader into the Shawnee world. The story moves quickly and reads like a movie. Her secondary characters helped move the story. The story accurately portrays the Shawnee's version of history. The main characters are strong. I can't wait to read the sequel. The author left me wanting more. She has little gems in her book that could be further explained in her sequels. I could also tell she had a few characters that would be great for a spin off. Wonderfully compelling! 

This book was very accurate in the portrayal of The Shawnee Indians. 
Calico is having a hard time adjusting to her adoptive parents. What is a girl to do when she feels like she should be one way but is expected to be a different? Will she ever forgive the person who betrayed her? Will she ever have a truce between herself and a boy she hates? Read on to find out! This book is so capturing that once you read it you will not be able to put it down! If you are a real history buff then you will def love love this book. -----Teelovesgio

Calico has a strong cast of characters that Mrs. Bruning manages quite well. Calico's story simmers along, gradually picking up speed and drawing you into her world just a little bit more with each event that takes place. Allison represents the Native Americans in a genuinely respectful, entertaining way that I found most humbling. ------ Jennifer Starks

From the Author

Calico was a very interesting book for me. The series, Children of the Shawnee, began in the summer of 2008 when I wrote 700 pages in two months. I have always been interested in Native American cultures, especially the Shawnee people. I studied anthropology with an emphasis in Native American cultures in college. As an avid reader, I was always looking for a good Native American book from the point of view of the tribes. Yet those books are far and few between. Whenever the Shawnee people are in the media they are depicted as blood thirsty killers. I decided to create an authentic series with the story told from the Shawnee's point of view. 
I never wrote this book to tell the white man's history but to shine a light of the Shawnee people in a positive way. Calico is very different from my other books because I had to tap into a culture that is not my own. The experience was challenging and very enlightening. I learned to see past the bias accounts of the Shawnee in historical records and view life from a completely different angle.
