Her mother is Lakota, her father white, and fourteen-year-old Red Dove's dream is to bring her worlds together. With her grandfather's medicine pouch, she has survived the cruelties of the Indian boarding school and the tragedy of Wounded Knee. She's ventured across the ocean to Europe with Annie Oakley in Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show. Now, in Red Dove, Run Through the Fire, she's returning to America to make her dream a reality-and find the place where she belongs.
A Note From the Publisher

"I thoroughly enjoyed reading Red Dove, Run Through the Fire, the third book of the trilogy about the adventures of a young Lakota girl during the late 1800s. It is a touching fictional tale, but it illustrates accurately the history of the Lakota people and their culture. The truth about Wounded Knee and the boarding schools is presented in a respectful manner to which young people can relate, Students who read this book will not forget what happened to the Lakota people in 1890. As an "Iyeshka" person myself, raised in white culture, I can appreciate the fact that it is a struggle to be successful in both societies. This beautifully written book is a fascinating ending to the trilogy. I recommend all three Red Dove books for young and old."
—Mary Puthoff, Lakota educator and former Program Specialist, Title VI, American Indian Education Program

this was another great entry in the Red Dove Trilogy series, it had what I enjoyed from the previous books. Sonia Antaki does a great job in telling the story and each book be a cohesive series. I enjoyed getting back to this series and thought it worked in this universe. The characters were what I was hoping for and worked so well in the story. I loved the time-period going on and how everything that worked in that time-period. I look forward to read more from Sonia Antaki.
“I’m sorry,” Red Dove said, “but they are true, aren’t they?” She softened her tone. “And I can tell it’s been tough for you, hasn’t it? You’ve had to do some things, things you didn’t want to… like being with him.”

Thank you NetGalley and Atmosphere Press, Independent Book Publishers Association (IBPA), Members' Titles, for accepting my request to read and review Red Dove, Run Through the Fire.
Author: Sonia Antaki
Genre: Historical Fiction -- Middle Grade -- Multicultural Interest
This is the third book in the Red Dove Trilogy, and my first read. Of note, I have read very few middle grade books; when requesting I think I was lost in the cover and didn't notice MG.
From the first page my attention was held, and I was struck by how brave at 14 the young lady was. Was it the author's imagination or the Lakota standard. I had to look up a lot of words, mostly tribal; and while the author does give a reading definition, it wasn't enough for me. Of note, I am much older than the intended audience.
The point I would like to make: This is a book with a lesson, as are the previous two. A child will need guidance to maximize their reading and understanding. I would like to be able to prioritize the time to read the other two.
