    One thought on “Bread-and-Butter Indian”

    1. This was my favorite book when I was younger. I checked it out of my elementary-school library over, and over again. It is an honest story with strong characters.

    2. This book was the third read-aloud this year for our homeschooling. It filled the category of historical fiction. The story, based loosely on the life of the author's ancestor, centers around a young settler in Pennsylvania in the 1700's. Her family and community despise the surrounding Indians, mostly because they are scared of them. But Barbara secretly befriends an Indian by giving away her cherished bread and butter. The Indian deepens the friendship by setting the wing of an injured crow th [...]

    3. The Bread and-and-Butter Indian by Anne Colver is an illsutrated chapter book which tells the story about a young girl Barbara, and her new-found Indiana friend. The problem is, the village in which Barbara lives looks very negatively upon Indians, because in the past, Indiana tribes came and burnt down several houses within Barbara's village. The village, Burnt Cabins, got its name the past incident involving the Indians. Although Barbara has been warned against making any contact with any Indi [...]

    4. This is one of the books that I had not read myself for a very long time after the story was first told to me. There were things I had forgotten, and there must have been parts of the story that I dreamed after finishing a chapter, because it seemed much shorter and tamer than I remembered. Says more about me than the book, but I still enjoyed reading it. I loved the innocence of this book, particularly how it is protected and the scary parts can seem not quite as scary when you're six and unawa [...]

    5. 1783, western Pennsylvania. In the tiny settlement of Burnt Cabins, a girl named Barbara secretly makes friends with an Indian by sharing her snack of bread-and-butter with him down by the creek. When a strange Indian kidnaps her (as part of ongoing fighting and kidnapping going on between the white settlers and the Indians), Barbara is rescued by her “bread-and-butter” Indian friend. Based on the true story of the author’s husband’s great-great-grandmother.

    6. This tale is inspired by the experience of the author's mother-in-law. I found some plot elements unbelievable and would have appreciated an author's note explaining which parts were actually real events. Overall, unimpressive.

    7. Sadly out-of-print. Woe. But I have such clear memories of this book, and if ever I were to come across it again, I'd grab it up in a second.

    8. I use this as a non-fiction read-aloud in third grade. It provides a great insight into what life was like for early pioneers as they began to settle in north America.
