Red Dove, Run Through the Fire is a work of fiction in the adventure and cultural fiction subgenres. It forms the third book of the Red Dove Trilogy for children in the middle-grade reading group and was penned by Sonia Antaki. In this continuation of the series – which also works perfectly as a standalone adventure – we see our protagonist Red Dove once more living through the history of being part of the Lakota, but she is also half-white. Having returned to New York after touring Europe with Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show, Red Dove is finally ready to speak her mind on her experiences in life, but will she find an audience for her heart’s truth?
This story was both an inspiring and educational experience for me as an adult reader, so I can only imagine how wonderfully useful and enlightening it will also be to middle-grade and younger YA readers. Sonia Antaki has an incredible knack for weaving history and sociology into the storyline seamlessly so that you’re never bogged down with endless prose. You are continually learning about the incredible culture and legacy of the Lakota people. Red Dove is a deeply sensitive and well-developed protagonist, who is remarkably emotionally intelligent at fourteen, owing to her life experiences and attitude. This makes for superb reading and a heartwarming adventure with a deeper message about truth and believing in who you are and where you come from. I would not hesitate to recommend Red Dove, Run Through the Fire for classrooms and home reading alike.
