  • Hidden Roots

    Joseph Bruchac

    eBook (Bowman Books, Jan. 10, 2011)
    "Hidden Roots" focuses on the greater impact that the generations of Abenaki that followed had to deal with. Readers will learn about the loss of identity, history and culture; lack of self worth and fear that Abenaki people were feeling, and still feel today. Middle grade readers love to see life as "being fair", and will totally understand that life is not fair in this story. This is a book that should be read in every middle school class, so that this history will not be forgotten, and never be repeated. - Judy Dow (Abenaki) Descendent from the largest family targeted in the Vermont Eugenics Survey Oyate Board of Directors, Reviewer, Educator“Reprising his signature themes, Bruchac sets up this taut novel to reveal a chilling bit of history. . .The climactic shocker has the intended effect and is certain to have a searing impact on the audience.” – Publisher’s WeeklyIn the United States, Native men and women were sterilized against their will and without their knowledge. In an unflinching---yet sensitive---manner, Bruchac gives his readers a story of one of the darkest periods in American and American Indian history. Hidden Roots is one of his best works and should be required reading in every school in the country. - Debbie Reese (Nambe Pueblo) American Indians in Children's
  • I Was on the Wrong Bear

    Harvey Carr

    Paperback (Bowman Books, Jan. 1, 1992)
    Young Adult. Folklore. Oral History. Edited by his friend Vaugh Ward, Harvey Carr's tales establish him as the representative northern woodsman. Ranging from Hello, I'm Harvey Carr through Real Bears and Not Real Bears to So Long, Etc. These short pieces are charming stories, deceptively sophisticated in their earthy simplicity. If I'd kept on tellin' the truth, I'd never have gotten into these thing! You get in the right group and everyone adds something ... If people laugh, they're not mad, they're not cryin'. They're going to be feelin' better. (Introduction). An excellent book for children from eleven up, as well as anyone interested in the truth about the Adirondacks. Illustrations by Deborah Delaney.
