Trivia 200

Filed under: Trivia — susanbright @ 11:41 am

In this book, 10 year old Alfred is given a book about an all African American Army Regiment commissioned to patrol the west after the Civil War.  Do you know the name of the book?

Thank you Esther! The Buffalo Soldier by Chris  Bohjalian is the correct answer. Alfred is a 10 year old African American foster child. When a friendly neighbor gives Alfred a book about the Buffalo Soldiers, a black cavalry unit and teaches him to ride a horse, his whole life begins to change for the better. Bohjalian is also the author of Midwives.
