Reviews

"First published in 1978, this 40th anniversary edition updates the depictions of Indigenous people and expands upon the presentation of historical facts . . . cleaner and brighter, with more saturated colors and modern type . . . This version does a good job of including more Native Nation-specific facts about popcorn and its preparation . . . Readers familiar with this book will delight in a fresher-looking version"--Kirkus Reviews
