Product Description

From the Author

Starting a series
When I was a young student, I found history very boring. When I became a writer, I loved history and searched for a way to make it fascinating for my readers. That's why I started the "If You Lived...." series for Scholastic.

1.0 out of 5 stars Suspicious 3 April 2010
By BVJS - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I used this book for many years when I taught my third graders about the Native Americans who lived in Minnesota prior to the arrival of the Euro-American settlers. I became uncomfortable using it when I learned that the word, "Sioux" means "enemy" or "snake" and is a bastardization of the word the Ojibwa had for their enemies, the Dakota.

I have also learned recently, from speaking with the Native American families in my school, that I should be suspicious of and try not to use books about Native Americans that are not written by a Native American.

I looked for a better book to use and found Michael Bad Hand Terry's book, "Daily Life in a Plains Indian Village 1868" (Clarion, 2001). It has a lot of great information, gorgeous photographs, and is a more accurate portrayal of the Native People of that time. I feel much better using it.

This book was needed to enhance our class study of Native American culture. It was ordered and shipped quickly and was in great condition. I had to think if I ordered it new.

My grandson needed to write a report on the Sioux for school, and this book helped him a lot with his assignment.
