Poundmaker is specifically written to meet the needs of adolescents and adults who are reluctant readers. The photographs, maps, and illustrations reflect the text, making the words easy to decode.

Poundmaker led his people in The Northwest Rebellion on 1885, always hoping for a peaceful way to save his people from starvation. He turned himself in to the authorities when the Rebellion ended and was found guilty of treason. He was let out of prison a year later and died soon after a broken man. Lexile level: 390L
