Grade 6 Up– Sarah Winnemucca was a spokesperson and advocate for Indian rights. Born in 1844, she witnessed many of the upheavals that the Paiute experienced because of the arrival of the settlers and gold miners. Sadly, her life was riddled with betrayal, murder, and thievery on the part of the Nevada settlers. This very detailed biography, illustrated with black-and-white period photographs, gives a wealth of information on a dedicated woman who valiantly struggled her entire life for the benefit of her people. –Lisa Mitten, University of Pittsburgh, PA
