520    This fascinating picture book biography tells the 
       childhood story of Buffalo Bird Woman, a Hidatsa Indian 
       born around 1839. Through her true story, readers will 
       learn what it was like to be part of this Native American 
       community that lived along the Missouri River in the 
       Dakotas, a society that depended more on agriculture for 
       food and survival than on hunting. Children will relate to
       Buffalo Bird Girl’s routine of chores and playing with 
       friends, and they will also be captivated by her lifestyle
       and the dangers that came with it. Using as a resource the
       works of Gilbert L. Wilson, who met Buffalo Bird Woman and
       transcribed her life’s story in the early 20th century, 
       award-winning author-illustrator S. D. Nelson has captured
       the spirit of Buffalo Bird Girl and her lost way of life. 
       The book includes a historical timeline. (Amazon).
