Paperback No Girls Allowed by Alan N. Kay (Goodreads Author) The roles of women in the Civil War, sometimes apparent and sometimes hidden, are depicted at the Battle of Antietam along with the frustrations doctors and nurses faced in the war .

With Civil War destroying the country, Mary Adams and Lynn Rhodes decide to help even if they aren't wanted. Mary joins an aid society and helps to heal the wounded, eventually meeting Clara Barton. Lynn joins her twin brother and disguises herself as a boy to fight alongside the men and boys of the Union army. Each of them faces different challenges as they struggle to be treated as equals. During the Battle of Antietam, these two very different girls, who choose two very different paths, find themselves forced to work together to not only save the country but to somehow take a stand for women in a war that was only for men.

Paperback The Birchbark House (Birchbark House #1) by Louise Erdrich Nineteenth-century American pioneer life was introduced to thousands of young readers by Laura Ingalls Wilder's beloved Little House books. With The Birchbark House, award-winning author Louise Erdrich's first novel for young readers, this same slice of history is seen through the eyes of the spirited, 7-year-old Ojibwa girl Omakayas, or Little Frog, so named because her first step was a hop. The sole survivor of a smallpox epidemic on Spirit Island, Omakayas, then only a baby girl, was rescued by a fearless woman named Tallow and welcomed into an Ojibwa family on Lake Superior's Madeline Island, the Island of the Golden-Breasted Woodpecker. We follow Omakayas and her adopted family through a cycle of four seasons in 1847, including the winter, when a historically documented outbreak of smallpox overtook the island. Readers will be riveted by the daily life of this Native American family, in which tanning moose hides, picking berries, and scaring crows from the cornfield are as commonplace as encounters with bear cubs and fireside ghost stories. Erdrich--a member of the Turtle Mountain Band of Ojibwa--spoke to Ojibwa elders about the spirit and significance of Madeline Island, read letters from travelers, and even spent time with her own children on the island, observing their reactions to woods, stones, crayfish, bear, and deer. The author's softly hewn pencil drawings infuse life and authenticity to her poetic, exquisitely wrought narrative. Omakayas is an intense, strong, likable character to whom young readers will fully relate--from her mixed emotions about her siblings, to her discovery of her unique talents, to her devotion to her pet crow Andeg, to her budding understanding of death, life, and her role in the natural world. We look forward to reading more about this brave, intuitive girl--and wholeheartedly welcome Erdrich's future series to the canon of children's classics. (Ages 9 and older) --Karin Snelson Learn More
