Here is another book by Kathleen Duey. I’ll do a full report because I’m not in a hurry.
Series: American Diaries
Book 9 (This is another series that you do not have to read in order): Celou Sudden Shout: Wind River, 1826
Author(s): Kathleen Duey
Age Level: 10+
Target Audience: Girls
This is not my kind of book.
· There is some shooting and a talk about a fire that took place during the book in ‘the big village’ that probably killed some of Celou’s family.
About The Main Characters:
Celou: The Main girl who ends up saving her family after captivity.
Bi’a: Celou’s mother a strong Indian.
Mu’mbic`: Celou’s baby brother.
Jean-Paul: Celou’s foolish little brother.
Crow People: A very bad tribe that always’s has trouble with Celou’s tribe.
What I Think About This Book:
This is another okay book. I would check out a lot more books before I would come to this one.
From The Book:
Where is your man? the Crow was signing.
Not Far, Celou saw her mother sign back. Just over there.
She pointed in the direction of the big camp. One of the Crow laughed a brittle, short sound. He said something in his own language, then made a gesture that Celou knew all too well. Blackfoot.
I would recommend this series of books for youth girls that like history. (I am obviously not a big fan of history, but it’s good if you do)
