Title: Runs with Courage
Author: Joan M. Wolf
Runs With Courage is my favorite book! It is a story about a Native American girl, Four Winds, who is taken away to go to a white school, or a boarding school. She has to learn English with a bunch of other Native American girls. It is realistic fiction and the author has only written one other chapter book. Her name is Joan M. Wolf.
The book is detailed about the Native American culture. Four Winds thinks like a native american and shows that she doesn’t understand a lot in school. She can’t control her anger very well, and runs away once, only to be sent back. She meets a Native American boy who cleans up after everyone, and is supposed to burn all the special items of the Native American girls. Four Winds and the boy, William or Catches Fire, become great friends and help all the other girls to be happier. I really like this book because it shows how some Native Americans felt about boarding school. Thank you for reading this report, and I hope you read this book!
