Publisher's Summary

Before dying, Pyesa, Black Hawk's father and chief of his people, commanded his son to defend their land from whites, who were trying to force the tribe off their land. Black Hawk, however, has no taste for killing and scalping and goes through great internal conflict.

The story of this great-hearted leader shows how some whites and Native Americans were peaceful and kind, while others were not. Based on true events, this powerful book teaches about a difficult time period and shares profound, unique messages about love, faith, mercy, humility, friendship, forgiveness, and faith. 

"I love stories that are beautifully written, that teach about history, and that dig deep into powerful messages; this book does all of these things. Why do we want our children to love reading? Not so they read fast-paced books without value, but because we want them to be immersed in books like Black Hawk that mold the mind and heart in ways that are good and beautiful." (Jenny Phillips)

kids loved it

We listened to this story as a family, my 6 year old and 10 year old enjoyed it as much as I did. I did pause the story at times to make sure they understood things, and they usually did.

Wonderful historical book!

My kids and I listened to this to go along with our history curriculum, the story was very interesting and had us on the edge of our seats! It definitely caused us to delve even deeper into the life of Blackhawk and understand how things went about during the struggles with the Native Americans. All of my kids started building huts and pretending they were Blackhawk or one of his braves.. definitely an inspiring story and a great perspective on a man that tried to avoid all of the conflict.
