Winner of the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Native Writers Circle of the Americas, Joseph Bruchac is an Abenaki Indian who tells his stories with a distinct Native American perspective; therefore adding a more personal voice to his stories. ‘Flying with the Eagle, Racing the Great Bear’ consists of sixteen Native American stories from all across America. Each story is heart-felt as Bruchac details the emotional journey a boy takes into adulthood; through arduous rites of passages, they must gather their strength, intelligence, and endurance to face the challenges they have been given; learning the means to survival and collaboration. The author skillfully intertwines knowledge of Native American cultures with interesting adventures; thus capturing the attention of younger audiences. I highly recommend this book to young children and teens who are interested in learning about Native American culture ( )
