Publisher Description

Danny Bigtree’s family has moved to a new city, and no matter how hard he tries, Danny can’t seem to fit in. He’s homesick for the Mohawk reservation where he used to live, and the kids in his class call him “Chief” and tease him about being an Indian—the thing that makes Danny most proud. Can he find the courage to stand up for himself?

  • “This appealing portrayal of a strong family offers an unromanticized view of Native American culture, and a history lesson about the Iroquois Confederacy; it also gives a subtle lesson in the meaning of daily courage.”

    - Publishers Weekly
  • “This timely story should offer much to young listeners, particularly those who feel lost or left out.”

    - AudioFile
  • “With so many Native American stories set in the misty past, it’s great to read a children’s book about an Iroquois boy who lives in the city now…The purposive information and message are lightened by family jokes that mock solemn Hollywood stereotypes…and show the loving intimacy between people who can tease each other and laugh together.”

    - Booklist
  • “A worthy, well-written novella.”

    " Had to read this for my social studies methods class, it was a great book. It was really good at describing some of the traditions and the beginnings of the Iriquois tribe and their influence on the formation of the US. "
