    Drawing on Buffalo Bird Girl's historic personal accounts, this handsome picture-book biography tells her story in the first person about growing up American Indian on the Great Plains in the nineteenth century. Born in the Hidatsa tribe in Like-a-Fishhook Village, she is raised by loving grandparents and aunts after the devastating smallpox epidemic, brought by the whites, kills her parents. Despite the losses and hardships, which include brutal winter blizzards, she remembers a blissful childhood. Along with archival, sepia-tone photos, Nelson's moving pencil drawings and acrylic paintings show the girl and her community throughout the year: the women and girls harvesting, cooking, dressing up; the men hunting. Her grandmother teaches her to use a buffalo shoulder blade like a shovel. She loves the wonderful new luxuries the white traders bring, including kettles, sugar, and guns. But then comes the buffalo hunting for trade, the hides in piles like mountains. The personal focus is bound to spark discussion, and many readers will want to go on to the very lengthy informative notes. Copyright 2012 Booklist Reviews.
