The Heart of Everything That Is: The Untold Story of Red Cloud, An American Legend
The Heart of Everything That Is: The Untold Story of Red Cloud, An American Legend - Tom Clavin,Bob Drury

While advertised as an untold biography of Red Cloud, and it does definitely touch on his life, I would say this is more of a history book. Interesting to read, but a bit dry at times.

Walking on the Earth & Touching the Sky
Walking on Earth and Touching the Sky: Poetry and Prose by Lakota Youth at Red Cloud Indian School - Timothy P. McLaughlin,S.D. Nelson,Joseph M. Marshall III

Poetry and prose from students at Red Cloud Indian school. Some really good writing with raw emotions and wonderful illustrations.

Crossing Bok Chitto by Tim Tingle
Crossing Bok Chitto - Jeanne Rorex Bridges,Tim Tingle

Martha Tom knows she's not supposed to cross Bok Chitto, but she does one day in search of blackberries. Martha Tom hides behind a bush when she hears someone and soon she is discovered by a tall slave. He instructs his son, Little Mo, to help Martha Tom get home. A friendship begins between Martha Tom, Little Mo and his family.

A unique and wonderful story about friendship and freedom. It is based on Choctaw lore and I thought it was a great story with good illustrations.

Saltypie by Tim Tingle
Saltypie: A Choctaw Journey from Darkness into Light - Karen Clarkson,Tim Tingle

A six-year-old boy gets stung by a bee and goes to his grandmother, who calls his hurt "saltypie". It brings back a memory from when she was younger and first moved into her home. A boy had thrown a rock at her which caused her to blood. Her two-year-old saw the red on her facing, thinking it was something else, tasted it and called it saltypie.

This is a great picture book that helps to teach about modern Indians and some of the bad treatment was/is experienced.

Everything Breaks by Vicki Grove
Everything Breaks - Vicki Grove
Innocent Wonder, that's what his friends call him. But one summer night, Tucker decides to not be so innocent. Although he was supposed to be the designated driver, he drinks too much and gets sick.

Trey took the wheel as Tucker was by the side of the road, feeling not so well. He told his friends he'd see them down the road and it was the last time he saw them alive.

This book had a lot of interesting ideas, but it was often confusing and not until the last few chapters I saw where the story was even going. The main characters were good, relatable. I liked the ending the best, but overall, I didn't really enjoy the book.
