Synopsis

Ann Rinaldi, the author of many young adult historical novels, has found her niche and run with it. This historical novelist started as a columnist for The Trentonian in 1970 and has evolved into a prolific and insightful fiction writer who introduces history to young adults through engaging and universal stories. McGlinn explores the life and works of this inspirational author, illustrating the level of historical detail captured in each of Rinaldi's novels and highlighting the themes that she interweaves with American history and the personal development of her characters. Covering everything from America's colonial beginnings through the nineteenth century, Ms. Rinaldi's novels will interest everyone from librarians and teachers to students. Included is a discussion of the recent controversy that has flared over her portrayal of Native American boarding school experiences in My Heart is on the Ground.
