About the Book
Amazon named Eva Buckskin the #1 New Release in Children's Native American books!
Eva had only been in Colorado for a few weeks when she saw a tall Native American boy dressed in animal skins step out of the woods. Rather than running away, she trusted her instincts and the adventures began: gold, bears, Native American ceremonies, and secrets.
Set in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains in the early 1870s, this gentle book tells the story of two families and two cultures, combining fact and fiction while staying true to the Native American concept of harmony and balance.
This is the first of a series of six Eva and Buckskin Charlie books.
Reader Age Range: 8 - 12 years
Grade Level: 2 - 6
"For many years John has asked questions about our Abenaki culture. It was our concept of living in harmony and balance with nature and each other that interested him the most. From early drafts of Eva's Secret Name to the final copy, this idea is the underlying theme. After two centuries, it takes two kids, Eva and Buckskin Charlie, to bring the two cultures together and build positive relationships. I look forward to sharing this book with my grandchildren."
- Louis Annance, Abenaki Indian
"I strongly recommend Eva's Secret Name to the young reader. I found the book to be exciting, historically educational, and captivating. The short chapters make it a comfortable read. Eva's adventures take the reader back in time to a world with many obstacles to overcome without the resources that exist today. The detailed illustrations add a still life to the movies of the mind. Quick to catch your interest and hard to put down, this book will ignite many interesting discussions and questions."
- Kaye Ann Sykes, Retired Middle School Librarian
