Viaggio avventuroso tra gli indiani
Riusciranno a fermare la mandria di enormi bisonti impazziti?
-There are plenty of indigenous people writing about their own cultures and histories so tbh I don't see the point of anyone else writing "educational stories" like this and profiting off of them unless there's significant collaboration involved. Not to mention a lot of this is inaccurate and/or offensive, sooo.
-This is about two white kids (Jack and Annie) who travel back in time to visit a Lakota encampment. As if Lakota people ...more
Osborne has largely steered clear of the history of the Americas in her series, and with good reason: the legacy of colonialism is an enormously difficult subject to approach for any age group. In the latest story arc of the series, which includes books 17-20, Osborne has finally ventured into the relatively recent American past and the results -- at least here -- are mixed.
While she describes the mass slaughter of the bison unambiguously, even making the point that it was a military maneuver de...more
Lots of good information in this one. Jack and Annie go back in time and spend a day with some Lakota indians. Jack's trusty research book had some great facts to share about the Indians, but they also spent some time with an Indian "grandmother" who taught them some fascinating things about their beliefs and way of life.
The adventure with the buffalo was improbable and somewhat worrisome. I grew up not far from Yellowstone National Park, and we'd visit at least once a year. So perhaps ...more

Jake and Annie go on an adventure back in time to the Great Plains and learn how the Indians obtained their resource and their belief in the Great Spirit. Jack and Annie learned quite a bit from the Indians. It was a simpler time that should've never been disturbed. In my opinion, Indians had it right, and the white man ruined it.

Sam (8): 4.5 stars. I liked it because it gave some more information about buffalo and the, uh, Mary, what were they called? The people? Dad, you better not be writing that. The Lakota? Yes. Okay, what about them? I liked it when Jack saved them. ...more

o Like the other Majic Treehouse, this book takes the reader on an adventure. This book was a fun ready to see these kids do amazing things. The thing that I love this series is that children don’t even know that they are learning. That is getting all of this information while reading about the grerta adventures.
This was educational with a great plot. This would be awesome for kids who want to know a little more about the Native American way of life without having to read a textbook for it.
