This book tells a wonderfull tale of a young Blackfoot girl who falls in love and learns what growing up means. It gives an insight into the world of the Blackfoot indians. And it shares a few lessons about responsibility as well.

I loved this book when I was younger and now I'm very happy to read it again. The language is simple (I'm not a native speaker so this is important) without lessening the strength and beauty of the story itself. I'm sure any teenage girl will enjoy this story! (And perhaps boys will love it too, but I can't speak for them :-) ) Having an interest in native american culture is a bonus. So enjoy!

Sweet story just was not thrilled with abrupt ending. The character had great courage
and over all the book gave you the feeling of being a part of what was happening.

Sweetgrass, a phenomenal book, by Jan Hudson is a suspenseful and informative book. Sweetgrass, a Native American teenager, describes her everyday life in such a way that you learn a lot about Native American lifestyle. All through the book, Sweetgrass experiences difficulties, which she deals with in different ways. When Sweetgrass's mother falls into a depression over her dead baby, Sweetgrass has to "grow up" and become the new mother in a matter of hours. While acting as "mother", the disease, smallpox hits her tribe and Sweetgrass has to help those with smallpox, while caring for the rest of her family and proving to her father that she is mature enough to marry.
I recommend this book because it teaches you a lot about Native American culture and because it is very exciting! Sweetgrass tells about her everyday life, so it is easy to learn about life as a Native American teenager. I hadn't known that Native American men usually had more than one wife. The book also taught me that young girls were usually married to men, almost twice their age. The book was suspenseful, because while Sweetgrass's mother is in a depression, her brother catches the disease smallpox, and Sweetgrass is forced to take over the household. Sweetgrass also has to find ways to prove to her father that she is mature enough to become a wife. These are just two of the many aspects of the book any reader can take away from this book! Though I thoroughly enjoyed the book, others might not because it is slow to start. The book is slow to start which makes reading the beginning difficult to enjoy. Even thought the book takes a while to get going, the information you learn and the agony you feel for Sweetgrass makes it a wonderful book! I thoroughly enjoyed this book and feel that it would be a great read for anyone!

I had to read 2 books over the summer for school I picked 1 from the that the title made me want to read more about it.So I picked SWEETGRASS. Now this book is so good. It shows how 15 year old Sweetgrass belives that she is ready to be married.BUT she can't get married because her father doesnt think she is mature enough so...of course she has to show her maturity to her dad so she can marry EAGLE-SUN her 1 true love. So how does she get to show her maturity? Does she get to marry EAGLE-SUN? Read it to find Out! (and its not that long! )
Sweetgrass is inlove with this boy but her father said she mature enough to get married. So she has to show her father that she is mature enough to get married. While all this happens her best friend is getting married. She is said because she is not marring the man she wants. Her famiy picked him out. She got married to an old guy that has a lot of money. At the end she prove to her father that she mature and she gets to married him. I love this book. I couldn't put it down for one second. It was exiting and interesting all in the same time.
