More Description


Before the coming of the white man, the rifle-toting, bareback-riding 'red indians' of countless Hollywood westerns were just one of many native peoples in North America. In this expertly-written account, vetted by a Smithsonian Institution expert, Richard Platt takes kids on an enthralling journey through the diverse native cultures of North America. The story line features young brave Fearless Wolf, an outsider who grows to manhood as he leads resistance to the advance of white settlers. Trade edition includes a free Indian headdress. Red Kite Books' Discovering series offers a refreshing take on history: 32-page non-fiction books with a rhyming fictional story line along the bottom of each spread. Children learn from the informative main text, and then engage with the subject through the story line, the spectacular illustrations and - in trade editions - the free flag or other component. Its features: award-winning author; spectacular colour illustrations; free Indian headdress (trade ed only); rhyming story line on each page; text and illustrations checked by Smithsonian Institution expert.
