Reviewed with Mary Englar's Chief Joseph, 1840-1904.
Gr. 3-5. New volumes in the American Indian Biographies series tell about Indian leaders whose names, if not their stories, are well known. In 1821, Sequoyah first demonstrated to the Cherokee people that he had found a way to write the Cherokee language, employing methods that are still in use today. Best known for his "I will fight no more forever" speech, Chief Joseph surrendered just 40 miles from the Canadian border, where he had hoped to seek refuge for his band of Nez Perce. Following an introductory chapter that places each leader in time and place, each volume traces the leader's life, touching on tribal history and conflicts with the U.S. These very accessible titles are well illustrated with maps, photographs, and paintings, and they offer an introduction to American Indian history as well as specific information for reports. Readers may wonder why a Native American recipe is included in each volume, but the other appended information--a chronology, a glossary, a reading list, and Internet sites--is useful and appropriate.
