A great story for young readers. John Darragh, age 14, was an American spy. This suspenseful story, based on accounts of the Darragh family's spying activities for General Washington, young John undertakes a dangerous mission to deliver a message to the American army. Illustrations are a mixture of muted colors, and black/white images.

This book is about Little Blaze, a little Native American boy who wants to lead the buffalo jump a prehistoric hunting method of driving the buffalo herd over a cliff. Little Blaze’s brother Curly Bear was chosen by his father to lead this buffalo jump, and Little Blaze was upset because he thought he should be leading it. His job was only to stay behind the stacked stones and help frighten the buffalo. The day of the buffalo jump finally came and Curly Bear was running in with the buffalos right behind him. Little Blaze realized that he was not too ahead and the buffalos were gonna run over him. He decided to run and help his brother. He was able to carry him before he fell over and they jumped over the edge of the cliff. They landed on a small ledge and all the buffalo crashed down below. That night after eating boiled buffalo ribs, Little Blaze’s father told him he was proud of the courageous deed he did today and changed his name to Charging Bull. I enjoyed this book and had never actually heard of buffalo jumping before.… (més)
