Native American Heroes is geared towards child readers, but considering I am not so hot when it comes to history, I like to read these books because they make things easier to understand and remember than your typical history book. This book features Osceola, Tecumseh& Cochise and starts off with a pronunciation key with the various tribes and languages that will be featured throughout the book.
Some of the stories are not confirmed and come from legend, the book points this out in the beginning that anything that isn’t known to be fact will say something like “legend says” before it to help differentiate what is true and what is from stories.
Full of interesting information and easy to read, if you are looking to find out more about Native American Heroes, this is the book for you.
I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review. I was not otherwise compensated.
About the Book
Osceola, Cochise, and Tecumseh are three Native American heroes who fought valiantly for their land and for their people. This book is divided into three parts–each part recounting the life of one of these great heroes. Their true stories are emotionally gripping and tragic, and Ann McGovern handles delicate topics, such as violence and racism, expertly for young readers. The narrative text is supplemented by black-and-white original source materials throughout (i.e. photographs, maps, portraits, a newspaper article).
