VOw read one after the other one finds a great deal of repetition, but the books are reasonably wel] researched and full of facts for the yourig reader. The Northern Plains bock is contradictory to the hishly ac- claimed "Bun- My Heart at Wounded Knee" in the accounts of the Little Big Horn battle and the death of Crazy- Horse, but these events, like most Indian history, is open to interpretation by the author. Lfick of historical records and the passing on o! events by word of mouth leads to these discrepancies.
