Swamp Babies by Geraldine O'Connell Cusack


Swamp Babies by Geraldine O'Connell Cusack

Do American Indians exist today or do they live only in the forgotten past? Swamp Babies - A Seminole Story is set on Big Cypress Reservation in the late 1970s and early 1980s. It tells the story of the Seminole Tribe through the eyes of three young non-Indian children who go to live on an American Indian Reservation in Central Florida. Who are these Native Americans and where did they come from? How do they think, and why? Are the girls accepted by the native people? Can they make friends and be happy on Big Cypress? Read this poignant odyssey to find out who the Native American really is and how he struggles every day to remain true to his own identity.
