Grade 2-5-- A thorough, clearly written biography of one of the first female chiefs in modern history. Simon traces Mankiller's birth in rural Oklahoma, her adolescence and early adulthood in San Francisco, and her life as a Native-American activist and leader of the Cherokee Nation. She points out that women traditionally held positions of leadership and authority in Cherokee society, so Mankiller's election as Principal Chief is at once a nod to the past as well as to the future. Illustrated throughout with often mediocre black-and-white photos, this title will nonetheless be useful for those looking for materials on women and/or Native Americans. It's an inspiring story that should have a place in public, school, and tribal libraries. --Lisa Mitten, University of Pittsburgh, PA
