This is a boy with five short stories about different Indian tribes. The Comanches, Mohicans, Navajos,Hopis, and Mandan tribes are all real tribes, but the storys with the children are fictional. The stories are historical experiences a child might go through hundreds of years ago.
The illustrations are done in watercolor, and at the back of the book is a describtion of the tribes mentioned with pictures done in watercolor. This a great book for insight into Native American life.

A teacher could use this book in doing role play in the classroom. Another activity might be to make a compare and contrast to how American Indians lived then and now.
