"More inspiring than Seabiscuit and Hoosiers! Slamdunk writing! This book is a
winner!"Bill Croke, book reviewer for Wall Street Journal, Washington Times, Sacramento
Bee, and Weekly Standard

"Anna Fields brings this fictional biography to life with respect and joy. Fields skillfully portrays the various Native
American children from a wide variety of tribes.One needn't be a basketball fan to enjoy this reading."

In 1903, over three hundred Indian children from across America lived at the Fort Shaw Indian Boarding School in
a remote, isolated valley in Montana. Among the children were a handful of teenage girls, many who had only
lived in tepees. They quickly learned to play basketball and resoundingly crushed all opponents, including men's
and women's university teams. After the games, the girls recited Shelley and Longfellow, played mandolins and
violins, sang, danced, and pantomimed.

In less than one year after first seeing a basketball, they were crowned the first world champions of basketball at
St. Louis' 1904 World's Fair. Millions saw them and gained a deeper understanding and love for Indians. This is
the story of that team, seen through the eyes of star player, Minnie Burton.

Great stuff-soon to be movie
Jeri from Hawkin - 12 Mar 2007
