Minnie Burton was one of three hundred children at the Fort Shaw Indian Boarding School in a remote corner of Montana in 1903. There she discovered the new sport of basketball. When Minnie was one of five girls endeavoring to put the ball through the hoop, she was in her element, like a bird soaring through the skies. 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. She provides some heavy accents that seem suitable for young people just learning English but chooses a more neutral voice for Minnie. One needn't be a basketball fan to enjoy this reading.
