Title: Buffalo Before Breakfast
Publication Info: New York : Random House, c1999.
This is a very sweet story in the Magic Tree House series. Annie & Jack go to the Great Plains of the 1800s and meet a Lakota boy named Black Hawk and his wise and gentle grandmother. It’s a nice glimpse into the life of the Lakota following the buffalo across the plains in the time before white settlers arrived. Which also makes it bittersweet since a culture and way of life were lost. Maybe the best Magic Tree House story I’ve read yet.
