First Nations athletes
Great Athletes from Our First Nations
by Vincent Schilling
Schilling's book is derived from interviews he compiled with thirteen First Nations athletes from the United States and Canada. The variety of sports they compete in are diverse, ranging from baseball, hockey, and basketball to wheelchair racing, ringette, speed skiing, and wrestling. In an attempt to be inspirational, achievements and quotes are printed in bold text and tribal affiliations are appended to each chapter.
A quick read, this book may be of interest to reluctant readers or to students looking for contemporary biographical subject matter. It would be a good addition to a school or classroom library.
