Review:

This is a highly valuable resource for librarians and educators looking for accurate and culturally authentic books about the Native American experience. A superior reference and could serve as the cornerstone for Native American collections.--Laura Woodruff "VOYA " Strong American Indian voices permeate A Broken Flute. In innovative stories at the beginning, adults and young people speak movingly of how certain books have brought pain or healing to their lives. Readers of all ages can relate to these powerful words, which vividly reinforce the book reviewers excellent critiques. A Broken Flute is a compelling call for truth-telling and healing.--Marilou Awiakta (Cherokee), author of Selu: Seeking the Corn Mother's Wisdom
