  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Monthly Selections - #1 February 1997
    Gr. 3^-6. Hunter interweaves highlights of the daily life of 12-year-old Russell to give readers a glimpse of a well-rounded American middle-schooler of mixed heritage who participates in some of the traditional activities of his grandfather's Winnebago people even as he's living in a large city, playing hockey, and working out computer problems. The importance of corn and its harvest and the strength of family life to the Winnebago people is emphasized through text and well demonstrated through color photos. One contradiction may stop some readers: the text implies that Russell is wearing a short-sleeved shirt when he works in the corn field but the photo shows him in a long-sleeved one. A map and an author's note about her own Native American traditions are included, as are a glossary and a brief list of further readings.
