Buffalo Song

By Write for a Reader

This is another great historical fiction title that I enjoyed reading. I knew that the buffalo were important to the Native Americans, but knew nothing of their fight to revive the herds and keep alive the animal that meant the most to their culture. Joseph Bruchac tells the story of Walking Coyote and his family in a way that makes you feel as if you are there, helping them with their mission. . . . The illustrations help bring this story to life. Using paint, Bill Farnsworth creates vivid characters and scenes that do nothing but enhance this story. I would recommend this one to fellow teachers who are studying Native Americans. - Write for a Reader
