About the Book

Addie’s brother, Bud, is away at war. Addie misses him so badly that even a special letter addressed only to her does little to help. Determined to convince Bud to come home, Addie sets out with Grandma and Uncle Hayes to mail a letter of her own. Grandma has different plans, though. Will a special gift help Addie find the strength and bravery to support her brother and do her part? Set during World War II, Addie, Be Brave includes a glossary of Osage words and key information about Osage cultural elements.

“Speaking as an Osage citizen, I believe Mindy Standley’s newest story creates a world in which the reader sees minute details of the Osage home front in World War II as seen through Addie’s eyes. These details authentically convey important aspects of daily Osage life and create memorable characters both young and old.”
--Raymond Red Corn, Osage Member
