book prolongs racism and repeats lies  Aug 14, 2008
this book tells a white man's version of an Indian legend which simply does not exist. It prolongs the white mans view of history. It tells of a white man who marries an Indian Princess and becomes a chief. there are no Princesses in Indian culture and no chiefs either. and Indian women did not go into huts and give birth to a white man's son, whom he could name Petoskey. geez.
Don't let your children read this book and continue the racist view of native americans.
 
Great Read  Sep 12, 2007
I am originally from Petoskey and my mother bought this book for my daughter (along with some Petoskey Stones) for her to learn a little about the history of the area and state stone. This is a great book for anyone, especially any Michigander! The illustrations are beautiful!

Sun-Burst Rocks Tell a Story  Feb 5, 2005
In northern Michigan a town AND a rock are named for the Ottawa Indian chief, Petosegay. He was born in the late 1800s to a native princess & a French fur trader. His parents nurtured him in the wilderness & saw him thrive into manhood. Kathy-jo Wargin's story is one children will love to hear, and later read aloud because the descriptions of harmonious living in the wild, natural surroundings are so appealing. Her series of books about area folklore is a gift to readers everywhere.

"Nick" van Frankenbuyzen's paintings are strong and depict beautifully the life of the one named for "the rays of the rising sun." The stones around which the legend grew are truly unique and were formed from petrified coral millions of years ago . We are fortunate to have an author celebrating these legends - - a different kind of fantasy for children today. She also offers a bonus by adding a page of instructions for polishing the rocks you are lucky enough to find!

Reviewer mcHAIKU suggests that parents hunt for vacation destinations that allow their kids glimpses of history & their forebearers' courage, especially if they can hold in their hands lovely patterned Petoskey stones.
