This is a story about a young Sioux girl named Nannie Little Rose who describes her life at Carlisle Indian school in 1880 through a series of diary entries. Through her eyes we get a glimpse into what life was like for Indian children sent to Carlisle. Unfortunately, though this book has some historical accuracies, it is NOT a true s This book is aimed towards young adult readers, but is suitable for adult readers as well who are interested in Carlisle Indian School and Native American studies.

For example, throughout the book Nannie Little Rose uses the phrase "my heart is on the ground" whenever she is sad or upset. In its original form this statement conveys the strength and courage of Indian women, but in the context of the book, it trivializes the Indian belief system.

I am a lover of books, but this is not one I would have bought on my own. I bought it for a graduate class that dealt with issues in children's literature. We read this book as an example of a book in which major inaccuracies are portrayed. I was incredibly disappointed in how the author wrote this and the message it sends to the readers. It is most certainly not the "true story" is aspires to be.

I'm planning to reread this book again.
I first read it when I was twelve.
The only things that really upset me,
was that they said that they didn't know if they buried Lucy Pretty Eagle alive, She wrote a letter "Saying she was going to go into a trance." How the bloody hell would you know you were going into a trance? Also that one of her friends "Enjoyed getting her hair cut because it felt good and light." We were learning about the Sioux in fifth grade and we learned that they really loved their hair and wouldn't enjoy that and finally that the little ribbon book mark things that I enjoyed so much now and as a child was made of hair. Now I realize (or hope) it was faux hair. But as a twelve year old I thought it was read. To make the matters worse I was going through a book mark sucking phase. you can imagine my horror when I realize I was sucking on the faux hair instead of a brown ribbon thinking it was real.
This is a child's perspective on the book. I'll edit this when it comes in the mail and I can reread it.

Why aren't there better children's books about Carlisle?

Well, because they haven't been written and published (as far as I know). There HAVE to be good native american authors out there willing to write about the Carlisle experience - I refuse to believe there aren't. But so far, I've looked and looked. Nothing. At least this is a starting point. I plan on letting my daughter read this, document every error, then submit it somewhere as a reading challenge to a reservation high school with a cash prize for the best one written. We are not native american, so we have no business writing one - but I'd be happy to fork over some money to help a gifted young writer put together a better diary and use that money to help themselves or their families.

Holocaust survivors eventually got the word out by writing good children's fiction that was realistic, fact based and HORRIFYING. If the survivors of America's Holocaust don't write and publish the same sort of thing - some New Jersey culture vulture will do it for them....and whitewash it but good.

This is one of the best books I've ever read.
I'd recommend it to All ages. Heart breaking story of a young souix Indian girls diary, about being sent to an Indian school to learn white man's ways
The binding and ribbon page marker are beautiful!

I bought this book for my sister for her birthday. She has collected this series for roughly 10+ years. Must be a good read!

I have been trying to find and finish reading this book since I was in about 3rd grade! I am still in love with this young girl's story. It's a great read.
This series of books is great for 4th graders to grandparents. I love this series and own about 10 different ones
