Susan R. Gregson has been writing for more than 22 years. She is the author of nearly 20 children’s books. She also writes magazine and Internet articles, speeches, and technical reports. Her favorite part of writing books is the research.From School Library Journal:
Grade 5-8–Each book introduces the life of its subject within the context of the era in which he lived. Former slave, mountain man, and the first African American to venture west, Beckwourth was respected by the Native tribes until 1864, when he was forced to assist Colonel John Chivington on a raid of Chief Black Kettles camp. A warrior among his people, Crazy Horse fought white settlers who encroached on Native lands. He also fought at the Battle of the Little Bighorn. A great warrior who fought for the freedom of his people, Geronimo refused resettlement and fled with his followers to Mexico. He was later captured and forced to relocate to Fort Sill, OK. Each book is illustrated with color and black-and-white reproductions, maps, and illustrations and includes primary-source excerpts such as letters and diaries. All three titles are attractive and well researched.–G. Alyssa Parkinson, Highland Township Library, MI
