Fred Sanders offers a straightforward narration of this young adult adaptation of THE HEARTBEAT OF WOUNDED KNEE. Many mistakenly believe Native American civilization ended in the late 1800s, but this part historical, part autobiographical audiobook delves into thriving Native American cultures as they exist today. In particular, the author addresses his own Ojibwe upbringing on a reservation in Minnesota. Sanders's candid and gentle delivery is essential for the difficult subject matter: The atrocities done to Native Americans in the last hundred years are described, along with the people's struggles to keep their cultures, families, and languages alive. This essential audiobook for any age listener provides an approachable listen about truly resilient people. A.K.R. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2022]
