    1. A collection of poems and pieces by native american adolescents on various topics such as identity, family and homeland. Its a lonely and painful sort of book about the aftermath of destruction and the superhuman will to gather ones self. The quality of the writing its self however unfortunately is quite poor.

    2. Poignant. I read some reviews saying the quality wasn't "very good". It's a collection of poems written by kids conveying their reality through poetry. What did you expect, Shakespeare? Many of them were very touching. I can't imagine what it must have been like to experience those things.

Read aloud and shared.Social: Unfair treatment of Native Americans. Religion of Native American tribes.Literary Elements: A collection of poems and essays split into six categories: Identity, Family, Homelands, Ritual and Ceremony, Education, and Harsh Realities.

    4. I had bought this book a few years ago and never had a chance to read it. It's a quick read - maybe an hour at most. But it's not an easy read. Young people, as young as elementary school kids write about losing their heritage and culture and history to the white men's wars and greed. Essays and poems on the themes of family, identity, homelands, ritual and ceremony, education, and harsh realities make up the book. Some pieces brought me to tears because the emotion is so raw and unfiltered. It' [...]

    5. "Rising Voices" was selected by Arlene Hirschfelder and Beverly Singer. It is a book that is a composition of poems written by young Native Americans. This novel expresses how important it is to understand and appreciate cultures of all sorts. I would say that this would be good for 3rd-6th graders. This book would be a good read aloud good or an independent reading. The genre of this book can be seen as more of memoirs almost I think because it is the feelings of African American students and t [...]

    6. Rising voices is an educational book about Native Americans. Written by Arlene B. Hirschfelder and Beverley R. Singer, it is a wonderful book containing story's, knowledge and poetry of young Native Americans. These are very education and exciting sometimes to read.These young Native Americans have written stories and poetry about their lives and how they feel, containing a real and true perspective of what the English had done to them, what it was like to be taken away from families and forced [...]

    7. Nice quick read. Some interesting stories and poems. The problem was that many of the stories or essays were no complete, they were just segments of longer pieces. I would have liked to see the full works. It was a little date sometimes. A good read though. Interesting to read some of the works and then see how old the writer actually was.

    8. Reading level- 4-6 Genre-book of poems Topic-Poems based on Native American childrenSocial-Children speaking outCurricula Use-independent reading Text and pictures- N/A Summary- book of poems and essays that are written by Native American children.

    10. Decent amateur poetry. Seemed as if a majority of the book was from anthologies that Mick Fedullo put together. Took about 2 hours to read.
