This Runs With Courage Mid-level Reader Book will be an important asset to your classroom bookshelf or school library. Set in Dakota Territory in 1880, the book chronicles the story of a young Lakota girl named Four Winds who is taken from her family and brought to a boarding school run by whites. As the teachers try to get her to assimilate into white culture, she tries to hold on to who she is. The 224-page chapter book is a great way for students to learn about Native American culture and helps open dialogues about prejudice, diversity, and tolerance. Available in hardcover or paperback. Recommended for grades 4-7.
