I've shared information from Debbie Reese's American Indians in Children's Literature website several times now. Here is her review of Helen Frost's SALT: A STORY OF FRIENDSHIP IN A TIME OF WAR<http://americanindiansinchildrensliterature.blogspot.com/2013/10/initial-thoughts-about-helen-frosts.html> which is receiving rave reviews-including a few starred reviews!
I assume, due to its popularity and positive reviews from some tribal members, most libraries will include this title in their collection, but it may be helpful to know a few of the historical inconsistencies. I think this is a good example of how difficult it can be to review and select culturally competent books.
