for Cherokee Summer by Diane Hoyt-Goldsmith and Lawrence Migdale
Bridget is a ten-year-old Cherokee girl who lives in a mobile home near Tahlequah, Oklahoma, with her parents, brother and sister. An up-beat first-person text describes Bridget's typical summer activities: drawing pictures, hunting for crawdads, spending time with her grandparents, studying the Cherokee language on a computer at the library and attending a summer stomp dance. Information about Cherokee history, culture and contemporary issues is woven throughout Bridget's discussion, accompanied by color photographs of this energetic girl. (Ages 7-11)

Color photographs augment this personal profile of Bridget, a ten-year-old girl from Oklahoma who, in many ways, is a typical modern child but who also has strong ties to her Cherokee heritage, including studying her native language.
