Who Really Saved Laura Ingalls: Soldat du Chene or a Soldat du Chien?
Was the frontier family of Charles Ingalls saved by a "tree" or a "dog?" Is it possible that children's author Laura Ingalls Wilder misnamed one of her most memorable Little House on the Prairie characters? She described the noble, Osage Indian chief who persuaded his people to avoid a confrontation with settlers on Indian land in 1871. The early, imprecise blending of cultures and languages on the Kansas prairie combined to create a linguistic misnomer.

This book offers dramatic supporting material about the role and significance of protective "dog soldiers" to the Plains Indian warrior society. It includes two quotations from a speech Mrs. Wilder gave in 1937 pertaining to the writing of Little House on the Prairie. The book should appeal to older students, adult fans of the series, and those interested in historical information about Plains Indians.

Children's Literature: An Invitation to the World
Children's Literature: An Invitation to the World is written and organized in a manner that engages the readers and that will instill confidence in teachers when selecting and using literature in their teaching. Readers are asked to take a world view of literature-what it is; how to recognize one's own; how to recognize an author's-and encouraged to see children's literature through a lens that includes people not like themselves. The book tackles tough issues such as gender and racial bias and how they can be insidiously promoted in literature. No other book on the market engages readers more than this one. Rather than just presenting topics, the book asks "What can we learn from them?" In addition, the first-person narrative involves readers in the discussion, rather than simply presenting content to them. Elementary and middle school teachers, curriculum developers and anyone interested in children's literature.
