MWSA Review

This adaption of "Saga of the Sioux" by Zimmerman is an excellent book for young adults and children. Marvelously written and containing maps and pictures to keep their interest. Clearly a book that belongs in history classes as it tells a story more to the truth than is found in most history taught in schools today.
