Grade 4-6--Eastman presents the life story of a Native American intellectual who became a physician; ironically, his first assignment with the Indian Health Service came just in time to minister to the survivors of the infamous Wounded Knee massacre. La Flesche tells of the Native American woman who became the toast of society, and who lobbied on behalf of granting Indians U. S. citizenship and against the forced removal of tribes to reservations. Both books give a sense of the difficult balance that these people had to maintain as members of both tribal and white societies, but at times the authors seem to value successes in white society more. Excellent black-and-white photos in the Anderson book are confined to two sections, while the La Flesche photos are more logically placed throughout the text. Each title concludes with an extensive timeline that charts the subject's life along with events in Indian and world history. Detailed indexes round out these fine titles. --Lisa Mitten, University of Pittsburgh, PA
