Buffalo Soldiers and the American West (Graphic History) Reviews
This falls among the great Graphic Library texts. The art design, the story presented, and the textual features make it a good company for a history of the West. This was a part of African American history I ignored. Students will find out how these brave soldiers got their nickname "buffalo soldiers," the discrimination they suffered even when they wore these uniforms, their determination to excel as soldiers, their different functions throughout the America's westward expansion, and their legacy in the military. The text is equally designed for comprehension skills such as cause and effect, sequence of events, main idea, etc. This is a good example on how to motivate learners to read, improve reading compression skills, and motivate learners to learn about history.
Super condensed version of the actual book.
Excellent basic information. Easy to understand.
Great addition to my collection!
I really enjoyed the art and story-line. I thought the author handled the competing struggles of the Native Americans, African Americans and American Settlers in a balanced manner.
This book is like a comic book. I was expecting a more in depth depiction on the life of Buffalo Soldiers
Was not expecting a juvenile book to give to an adult!
The graphic novel approach for young readers is a good way to get the basics about a certain subject; in this case the buffalo soldiers. Some young students may be familiar with this term from listening to Bob Marley
