Available in paperback only.  Joseph Bruchac (Abenaki),  The Heart of a Chief. 1998.

This beautifully written story deals with some of the many issues confronting Native young people today, on and off the reservation: Indian “mascots,” leadership, and alcohol abuse. This may be the only story for this age group that realistically portrays a loving extended Indian family trying to deal with alcoholism. For this one thing alone, it is worth the price of the book.
