Item description for Brave Buffalo Fighter (Young Adult Bookshelf Ser) by John D. Fitzgerald...

Overview
Location: North America, United States Time Period: Modern Era (1700-1950 A.D.) , American Westward Settlement American Plains 1860 This powerful story, presented in the simple language of 10-year-old Susan Parker, really centers around the characterization of Jerry, Sue's 12-year-old brother. The Parker family, unused to any kind of pioneering life, leaves St. Joseph, Missouri, in 1860, part of a westward-bound wagon train. Each family member is challenged by the hardships of a difficult journey in which a jumble of classes and types of people must learn how to pull together. Jerry thrives on the life, and is prepared, when the call comes, to sacrifice much for the sake of the common good. Here is an unusually realistic and moving tale of pioneer spirit.

Reviews - What do customers think about Brave Buffalo Fighter (Young Adult Bookshelf Ser)?

Good Book, but very different from Great Brain Series  Apr 4, 2008
I just read Brave Buffalo Fighter, and thought it was a pretty good book. I didn't read it as a child, but decided to read it now, because I liked the Great Brain books so much, that I wanted to read more by John D. Fitzgerald. While the book kept my attention, I was surprised that the story was much more dramatic and had a harsher storyline than his other writings. This story lacked the humor of his other stories, but had the same historical fiction qualities.
 
Third Grade Memories Rushing Back....  May 16, 2004
Having grown up on the East side of Utah, the Great Brain was a treasured child hood companion. However, I had completely forgotten that John Fitzgerald wrote this book too. My third grade teacher, Mr. Cody Jenkins read this book to us and I remember being "transported" to the times of the book--a feat that only great books can accomplish.
 
Searching  Dec 21, 2001
I too have been searching for this book almost 20 years later. It's a book that you read and never forget. I could tell you the story and haven't read the book since 1985. How can such a great book be out of print?
 
Excellent  Aug 6, 1999
I second the comments of the previous reviewer. I read this book as a twelve year old, and have spent the last twenty years looking for another copy. Hard to find, but well worth the search.
