Synopsis

Buffalo Bird Girl A Hidatsa Story by S. D. Nelson

This fascinating picture book biography tells the childhood story of Buffalo Bird Woman--a Hidatsa Indian born around 1839. Through her true story, readers learn what it was like to be part of this Native American community, which lived along the Missouri River in the Dakotas, a society that depended on agriculture for food and survival rather than hunting. Using original artwork and archival photographs, award-winning author/illustrator S. D. Nelson has captured the spirit of Buffalo Bird Girl and her lost way of life. The book includes a bibliography and an index, as well as an author's note and timeline of events.
