Review by Suzanne Mcdonald

Various Books – December 1996 – Colorado Central Magazine

Falling Up. Poems and drawings from Shel Silverstein, great for children, and adults love them, too.

M is for Malice, another great mystery from Sue Grafton.

Seven Cats & the Art of Living by Jo Codert.

High Life: Animals of the Alpine World by John Winnie.

Any of the Northland Children’s Books series — beautiful illustrations.

The Dull Knifes of Pine Ridge — a five-generation biography of the Cheyenne family who escaped starvation on an Oklahoma reservation by fighting their way north to Lakota territory.

The Girl Who Loved Coyotes by Nancy Wood, illustrated by Diana Bryer.

The Eagle Catcher, great story of a Roman Catholic priest on the Wind River Reservation of Wyoming. It’s in paperback; the sequel, Ghost Walker, just came out in hardcover. Both are by Margaret Coel, a respected Colorado author.

It’s a Dog’s Life. Think of a baby book for dogs, with places for “tricks I’ve learned,” “first garbage can tipped over,” etc.
