Book Details

In 1992, Ben Nighthorse Campbell became the first Native American elected to the U.S. Senate in more than sixty years. His path to politics was an unlikely one. After a difficult childhood, Ben joined the U.S. Air Force during the Korean War. He later became an Olympian, a teacher, and a successful jewelry maker. Ben has never been afraid to take risks. And they have paid off for him. Part of the Notable Indigenous Americans series, this book tells the story of a boy with nearly all the odds stacked against him who became an inspiring athlete, educator, artist, and lawmaker.
