Good morning,

Early this morning, I started reading John Smelcer's book
THE TRAP. His writing so captures me that I'm not racing
through the book, but savoring it instead. Today's post
(January 27th) is about his book and my reaction to it so far.

Here's last week's updates to American Indians in Children's Literature:
