About this item

A quick-reading biography (for ages 10 to 110) that explores the history and mystery of, Who Was Eagle of Delight (Hayne Hudjihini), and why is her portrait in the White House? In 1821,a teenage Otoe Indian girl with "the Mark of Honor" journeyed east with her husband and other Plains Indian chiefs. There, she became "the Darling of Washington D.C. Society." Then tragedy struck, and she and her story were nearly forgotten for 140 years--until a series of events brought her portrait home and her story to light. This is another book in the award-winning Noteworthy Americans Quick Reader Biography series; includes color illustrations, glossary and index, endnotes, select bibliography, and (optional) critical thinking questions and activities.
