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).
