Reviews
"Both educational and historical in nature, Lana's Lokota Moons is sure to capture the interest of the young and the young-at-heart. With its beautifully narrated legends and amusing characters, Sneve has created a story that is both a tribute to her heritage and a poignant chronicle of the end of adolescent innocence."--ForeWord

"I can't imagine a young reader of this book who won't be drawn to the portrait of the strong community around these girls that Driving Hawk Sneve creates."--Jenny Shank, New West


"[An] unassuming yet potent chronicle of a fateful year in the lives of two preteen cousins."--Publishers Weekly


"The mix of Great Plains history with the contemporary scene rings true. . . . Lori's lively personal narrative will draw readers as she copes with anger, guilt, sorrow, and finally, the loss of her sister, even as she realizes that, in the Lakota way, the girls will always be connected."--Hazel Rochman, Booklist-- (5/1/2008 12:00:00 AM)
"This beautifully written short volume by an award-winning Lakota author tells a story of two modern day preteen Lakota cousins, Lana and Lori, their families and their growing up in the Lakota way."--Kliatt

"This is a story seeped in native traditions, and as Lori and Lana learn about their Indian ancestors, we learn to appreciate life and family."--Nina Murray, Skipping Stones
