Middle School (9 - 14) Books

INDIAN SUMMER, Barbara Girion. New York : Scholastic, 1990. (Grades 5-8)

An excellent novel of the cultural adjustments Joni must make when she finds herself living on a modern "Woodlands" (i.e. Iroquois) reservation with her family in upstate New York one summer. Also manages to touch on a number of issues important to contemporary Iroquois, without being preachy. Girion does a fine job. Reviewed by: Lisa Mitten and Naomi Caldwell-Wood
