9781933781037: Rainbow of the Sioux: Alone in Indian Country... Can a Ten-Year-Old Girl Survive?

Rainbow, age 10, is the lone survivor of a wagon train plagued by illness. These audio stories follow her as she tries to navigate a harsh new world. In “Alone in Indian Country,” she's confronted by a band of Sioux scouts. In “Becoming Sioux,” Rainbow is forced to follow the tribe. Treated as an outcast, she must use all her strength to survive. “The Buffalo Hunt” brings new challenges as she must learn to ride bareback, swim over river rapids, and face a wild buffalo. These stories of a young girl braving danger in the wild are both scary and inspiring.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 5—Jake Warner tells his original story in an expressive, lively manner, creating different voices for the characters and incorporating sound effects. A ten-year-old girl on a wagon train bound for California in 1844 is the only survivor of a cholera outbreak. Left alone on the prairie, she is discovered by the Sioux and Chief Red Sky adopts her into the tribe. However, she is quarantines for one month until he is satisfied that she will not spread the disease to his people. The chief's daughter, Singing Bird, befriends the young white girl, and begins teaching her the ways of the tribe. The two girls also start teaching each other their respective languages. Eventually renamed "Rainbow" by the Sioux, the white girl learns to ride bareback, to swim, and to hunt buffalo. When she saves Singing Bird from a charging buffalo, her place in the tribe is affirmed. Librarians and teachers can use this tale to promote the art and fun of storytelling to a younger generation.—Beverly Bixler, San Antonio Public Library, TX
