Colorful, vibrant, and accessible, this engaging children’s book is guaranteed to delight readers of all ages. Based on new research and archival images, the book relates the coming-of-age tale of a young Native American named Little Hawk. With his family and others from their tribe, Little Hawk is chosen to make a trading journey from his small village to the great mound city of Cahokia (A.D. 800–1400), in the midwestern United States.
In captivating illustrations, including a map of the journey and photographs that depict a range of period artifacts, Al Lorenz presents a historically accurate look at a culture that flourished well before the first Europeans arrived.
