Reviews for Why Did Cherokees Move West? : And Other Questions About the Trail of Tears


School Library Journal Reviews 2010 November

Gr 5-8--These narratives read like information from the Discovery Health channel, for kids: part fascinating science, part human interest story, and part "Eew, gross!" Markle devotes each volume to a severe injury, describing the nature of the accident, the damage inflicted, and the cures that saved the victims' lives. Clear, straightforward prose is supplemented by definitions and explanations of medical techniques and jargon. The numerous color photos and medical images will satisfy readers' curiosity. Each book concludes with an explanation of how to avoid the featured condition. While too slight for research, these books will hook interested readers.
