    " Okay, I know that every book that is classified a classic is nto going to appela to everyone. I read tthis and was interested in the historical aspect but found it dull at times. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tara Lynn | 2/6/2014

    " I read this before reading Paul Revere, and was relieved to discover that I did like Longfellow, I just didn't like this particular poem as much as I did Revere. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Taymar | 2/2/2014

    " I don't like this book at all. I had to read it for school and first of all, I don't like being forced to read anything. Second, there are big words, too many hard names to remember, and it is just plain confusing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrew Anderson | 2/1/2014

    " Love Longfellow to bits. He is a much overlooked poet in the UK "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tari_Roo | 1/29/2014

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vicki Boyd | 1/25/2014

    " The cadence of this poem has never been matched! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Derrick | 1/19/2014

    " I don't care what the literary critics think--I love te way this poem sounds. "

    " My second grade teacher read this to me, I will never be able to forget it for as long as I live :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Abigayil | 12/27/2013

    " This is an amazing poem. Answer this; how does one write something this long and rhyme the whole way through? Really good but takes concentration, not a light read, but worth the effort. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Samuel Hill | 12/23/2013

    " A wonderful tale that spans generations and covers lands further than the eye can see. A sometimes repetitive but beautiful read. But be warned, this is extended poetry and can be tricky to swallow. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Theresa | 12/23/2013

    " a poem of innocence and love of nature "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Liz | 12/10/2013

    " A totally different genre that I totally enjoyed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julie | 12/5/2013

    " as a poem this is a masterpiece, as a book its entertaining. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Willow | 11/28/2013

    " "On the shores of Gitchie Goomie, by the shining deep sea waters, stands the wigwam of Nicomus, daughter of the sea." -- is that right? Lyrical, magical; that's what I remember. It was long ago. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nellie K. | 6/25/2013

    " great book. You can learn a lot about Native American culture with this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rob Roy | 5/22/2013

    " A beautiful poetic work, which amply displays the Eastern love of the redman, now that they had mostly been killed off in the east. Here is one of the sources of the "Noble Savage." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Aaron | 3/6/2013

    " Beauty, legend, love, heroism. Wouldn't change a word of it. The only thing of which I'm certain in the exasperated canon of child-rearing: read this book aloud to your kids, and they will be better for it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Norma | 2/8/2013

    " This was a favorite when I was a kid. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sarah Jones | 11/2/2012

    " This is frankly awful and highly soporific. It has been lulling children into it's colonialist, small-minded narrative for far too long. Made me feel sick. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Aaron Schiffer | 10/6/2012

    " I didn't think I would like poetry. But this ranks among my favorite pieces of literature. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 8/8/2012

    " This is the first poetry I remember. My mother read it to us when we were toddlers. It seems woven into my genetic framework. Read more than nursery rhymes to your babies! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melissa | 4/21/2011

    " Some of the language & imagery is beautiful, but in general I find Longfellow a bit hard to swallow. I consider this epic poem to be a wannabe Iliad. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Samuel | 3/24/2011

    " A wonderful tale that spans generations and covers lands further than the eye can see. A sometimes repetitive but beautiful read. But be warned, this is extended poetry and can be tricky to swallow. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lacy | 2/21/2011

    " Loved it. Kind of wish I had read it in school so I could discuss some of the more poignant lines.
    I found myself reading it aloud so I could really get the rhythm of the song going. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pukapuka | 2/13/2011
