On her way to school one day, Sarah is relieved to find the book she’d dropped the day before—shortly after an encounter with a bear. But when she opens it, the story within, about the Cree chief Mistahimaskwa, comes alive. It takes Sarah back to the Saskatchewan Plains of 1832, where the young boy who would become the great chief first learns the ways of his people, to the final days of his life.
5 out of 5 stars
Although written for middle-schoolers, I nonetheless learned things from this book. I had never heard of this chief, and this book does a great job telling about the struggle and ultimately the treaty signed by both sides.
