Hidden Roots

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
