Description de l'ouvrage

août 2001
Award-winning author Mary Pope Osborne's first middle-grade novel is a gripping girl survival story reminiscent of such classics as *Island of the Blue Dolphins* and *Julie of the Wolves*.

Adaline is a fiery child--an irrepressible combination of her white explorer father Kit Carson and her Arapaho mother. When Ma dies and Pa sets off on an expedition out West, Adaline finds herself living in St. Louis with racist white relatives who call her a savage and work her like a slave.

When Adaline realizes she may have been abandoned, she decides to find her own way back to her mother's people, where she is sure her father will find her. With the company of a stray dog, Adaline sets out on a journey that will either save her life--or end it...

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I LOVED IT!!! 25 février 2001
Par Donna Lalas - Publié sur Amazon.com
Um...Like I said, I really loved this book. This is the first time I've read a book on the journey of a young Arapaho girl and a dog she met on the way. I believe Falling Star is a hero. This book is meant to be about the real life and views of the real Adaline/Falling Star. She is the daughter of an Arapaho mother and a White Man called Kit Carson. Since her mother died, Falling Star is forced to live with her cruel ignorant cousin while her father goes on an expedition. Before Falling Star's father leaves, they exchange promises that he'll come back and that Falling Star will stay and wait for him. As soon as he leaves, Falling Star is treated badly by her cousin's family, forcing Falling Star to act mute so that she will not speak to them. She is treated as a slave and not a student, like her father wished. Falling Star obediently waits for her father to come back, and then one day, she is told that he is in New Mexico and mentioned nothing of his daughter to anyone during his expedition. Falling Star feels betrayed. Was her father ashamed of his half red daughter? This news causes Falling Star to run away from her cousins and down the Mississipi River to find her Arapaho people. Just when she was just about to give up, Falling Star is saved by an ugly mongrel. At first, she tries to leave the dog, but finds already that the mongrel has already slipped into her heart. Together, Falling Star and her dog start their journey to find her people and her father who left her. The theme of this story is about promises, wether they are said or not. The promise in this story is to never leave your loved one, whatever the consequences. I really enjoyed this book and the journey that Falling Star and her dog go through together flying through tough times with the spirit of the Holy Spirit and the Great Spirit of the Arapaho and the Catholic Religion. I loved this book and I admire the heroic spirit of Adaline Falling Star.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Well-researched historical fiction 10 février 2001
Par Bibliotekaria - Publié sur Amazon.com
Eleven-year-old Adaline is considered a savage by her white relatives with whom she has been left by her father, Kit Carson, while he is on an expedition with John C. Fremont. Though she is intelligent and has received some education, she dares not allow these people to know that she is able to speak. Still grieving over the loss of her Arapaho mother, she is left alone in this hostile and unfamiliar environment in Saint Louis, taking comfort only in her "Ma doll," who seems to communicate with her in her silent world, a few other remnants of her former life, and a mutually-understanding relationship which she develops with the family's slave, Caddie. When Adaline finally breaks away from this unbearable life, her courage and strength are tested even further. The author's careful research has provided an accurate historical backdrop for this fictionalized account. Told from Adaline's point of view, the author skillfully creates a voice for this character with whom the reader can both sympathize and admire. The ending comes together perhaps a little bit too neatly to be believable, but it does not detract from the overall appeal of the book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Finally, a little reality . . . 16 juillet 2000
Par Carlin - Publié sur Amazon.com
I am glad Ms. Osborne has not spared the terrible truth in how Native Americans were viewed. Her writing is poetic, fast-paced, very touching, and provides a heck of a history lesson. I have always enjoyed stories of people finding courage and clarity in themselves. This will be one of my very favorites!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Adaline Falling Star 20 août 2001
Par Cathy Skubik - Publié sur Amazon.com
This story follows the spunky Adaline and gives a variety of glimpses into the time period. She is a likable and funny character who I found myself really rooting for- and wondering more and more about her famous father and what he was doing the whole time! The flashbacks and mystical themes enrich the storyline. A great female protaganist and her wonderfully intelligent dog companion make for a thoroughly entertaining and inspiring book.

Another wonderful book from Ms. Osborne. The research behind it shines through without overshadowing the story. I was a bit disturbed by the "cutting" incidents but mention of the cultural context helped put it into perspective. The feelings of grief, rejection, and abandonment Adeline experienced will provide interesting discussion if the book is read with students in the classroom.
