***We Are the Many

by Doreen Rappaport

Illustrated by Cornelius Van Wright and Ying-Hwa Wu

Reviewed February 17, 2003.
HarperCollins Publishers, New York, 2002.  32 pages.
Available at Sembach Library (J 920 RAP)

We Are the Many is a beautiful picture book, telling stories from the lives of 13 Native Americans.  The time frames range from Tisquantum (Squanto), who helped the Pilgrims, to Sherman Alexie, a present-day author.  The author chose a single incident from each person’s life and presents it on one page, with a beautiful painting on the facing page.   You will be amazed at the wide range of people represented.  This is a wonderful introduction to the topic.
