I loved the book if you wanted to learn something little about the Iroquois you can go to the content at the beginning and just read what you want to learn. Recommend this to anyone who wants to learn something specific about the Iroquois.

I love this series of books. I have learned from every one of them. When I taught 4th grade, I used this book to supplement our unit on Native Americans. The kids always loved them.

Ellen Levine's books have won many awards and honors, including the Jane Addams Peace Award. Although she enjoys writing both fiction and nonfiction, most of Ellen's books for young readers have been nonfiction. "Writing nonfiction lets me in behind the scenes of the story.
