Ages 9-12 Fiction
  211Fern | Nov 1, 2010 |
Sarah Winnemucca's grandfather has a dream that the people of his tribe will make peace with the white man. Sarah's life is altered by this, as he has her sent to be educated the way that white girls are: she is taught to speak English, read, write, and sew. The way of life of her tribe is about to change, however. Soon their land is encroached upon by white settlers and they do not have enough to eat, and they are forced onto reservations where they are cheated by both the US government and the reservation agents. She finds a purpose speaking for the cause of her people. ( )
