Welcome to Northshire Live Joseph Bruchac, the acclaimed Abenaki children’s book author, when he presents his new book ONE REAL AMERICAN: The Life of Ely S. Parker, Seneca Sachem and Civil War General in a wide ranging literary conversation with fellow children's book author Steve Sheinkin.

TICKETS AVAILABLE HERE!

Ely S. Parker (1828–1895) is one of the most unique but little-known figures in US history. A member of the Seneca (Iroquois) Nation, Parker was an attorney, engineer, and tribal diplomat. Raised on a reservation but schooled at a Catholic institution, he learned English at a young age and became an interpreter for his people. During the American Civil War, he was commissioned as a lieutenant colonel and was the primary draftsman of the terms of the Confederate surrender at Appomattox. He eventually became President Grant’s Commissioner of Indian Affairs, the first Native American to hold that post. Award-winning children’s book author and Native American scholar Joseph Bruchac provides an expertly researched, intimate look at a man who achieved great success in two worlds yet was caught between them. Includes archival photos, maps, endnotes, bibliography, and timeline.

Joseph Bruchac is an acclaimed Abenaki children’s book author. His awards include a Boston Globe–Horn Book Award and Honor, the Hope S. Dean Award from the Foundation for Children’s Literature for Notable Achievement in Children’s Books, and a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Native Writers’ Circle of the Americas. He lives in Greenfield Center, New York.
