Twelfth Winter - B&W
Twelfth Winter is the sequel to Summer of Two Worlds. It picks up the story as Prairie Cub journeys east to start life again in Michael’s world. It begins as he arrives in Snow Shoe, West Virginia, at the end of the summer of 1882 and carries into the spring of 1883. It's the story of a boy’s emotional journey as he is forced to return to the white man’s world and culture into which he had been born, after having lived his whole childhood as far back as he could remember, as the son of a Sioux warrior.

Assessment:

Plot: This is an intriguing work set in the late nineteenth century, and the author does an excellent job not only depicting the period but detailing the struggle of a Native American boy who is caught between the white man's world he lives in and his cultural history. His struggle is palpable, but the author sacrifices action for inner turmoil. The storyline would benefit from more action to balance the elements out.

Prose/Style: The author is a capable writer who is able to convey the inner angst of Prairie Cub. Some events, however, seem implausible or unlikely, and the book would benefit from a developmental edit to clear up such scenes.

Originality: This is a clever, highly original work that revisits a lost era. Young readers will learn much about the past while reading about Prairie Cub’s life and experiences.

Character Development/Execution: The author does an excellent job depicting Prairie Cub and the challenges he faces. His "torn between two worlds" life is vividly detailed, and the reader cannot help but root for this character.
