The Scout: Tommy Prince is one of the titles from Tales from Big Spirit series. This unique graphic novel series is a highly recommended six-book graphic novel series that delves into the stories of great Indigenous heroes from Aboriginal peoples and Canadian history—some already well known and others who deserve to be. Designed to correspond to grades 4–6 social studies curriculums across Canada, these full colour graphic novels could be used in literature circles, novel studies, and book clubs to facilitate discussion of social studies topics. These books will help students make historical connections while promoting important literacy skills. Swampy Cree writer David Alexander Robertson is the author of all six titles. A search down a wooded path for a well-hit baseball turns into an encounter between Pamela and a veteran soldier standing in front of a monument. The statue commemorates the heroism of Sgt. Tommy Prince, the most decorated First Nation soldier in Canada. Pamela is curious, and the veteran is happy to regale her with the story of the expert Ojibwe marksman and tracker, renowned for his daring and courage in World War II and the Korean War.
