Apache: Girl Warrior by
The injustice of what happened to America’s native peoples was the inspiration for Tanya Landman’s Apache. The creation of the book’s heroine warrior was born out of a deep anger at their plight and the realization that their massacre was somehow justified in the cause of the expansion of the USA.
When Siki sees her brother brutally slain in a Mexican
ambush, she vows revenge.
Shortlisted for two prestigious awards, the Carnegie Medal and the Booktrust Teenage Prize 2008, this is a great read for anyone who appreciates one young woman’s determination to fight for her land, her tribe and her life!
