Middle School (9 - 14) Books

WIGWAM AND WARPATH: MINUTE STORIES OF THE AMERICAN INDIANS, Isabel Jurgens. New York : Grosset & Dunlap, 1936. (Grades 5-8)

Although this book provides biographical sketches of lesser known Native Americans, it is laden with condescending overtones and innaccurate information. Clearly not written by someone close to the subject. A book to avoid. Reviewed by Lisa Mitten and Naomi Caldwell-Wood
