Gripping, violent graphic novelabout African American trailblazer is historically accurate and hard to put down
There's no shortage of intense chase scenes and shootouts in this new biography from acclaimed authors Patricia C. and Frederick L. McKissack.
Stampedes, stabbing (silhouetted), shooting (Nat prizes his Colt .45), and whipping (delivered by the slave owners) are only a few of the incidents the protagonist gets tangled up in. There are a few glimpses of blood as well. Also, Nat suggests he and his fellow cowboys get drunk in Dodge City by saying that "our mamas wouldn't be proud." As this story is based on the earlier Adventures of Deadwood Dick, these occurences are true and are not toned down in any way. It's a quick read (132 pages), but it can be disturbing to the young'uns. Bottom line; you can let your 10 year old read it if they aren't very sensitive.
