From the book:
My father sighed deeply. "We never make war on women and children, he said, "But the Blue Coats kill our women and children first. That is a shameful way to fight."
This book is important educationally to children and adults. Scott O'Dell is my favorite children's author, and this book is my favorite of those I have read. Also recommended: Streams to the River, River to the Sea, Island of the Blue Dolphins, and Zia.
This book was great! This is definitely one of O'dell's best. Thunder Rolling in the Mountains shows how Native American tribes had to have immense courage. Sound of Running Feet was a great character, as was her father Chief Joseph. This is a great book, and it is one of my favorites.
This book was about a girl named Sound of Running Feet and the other members of the Nez Perce being kicked out of their home by the Blue Coats. Tribe members think that being kicked out of their home is bad but there will be more bad luck to follow, they still have battles to fight.Will they ever see their beloved home again?
My favorite character is Sound of Running Feet because she is a young Indian girl trying to fight for herself and her tribe.
The best part of the book was when Sound of Running Feet and Swan Necklace(her boyfriend)were captured by another tribe.
If you are interested in wars and Indians then this is the book for you!
