Across the street from Noni's school stands the "Copper Captain," a statue of the town's founder, Captain Whitmore. For Noni, the statue represents greed and cruelty that damaged the lives of Native Americans--including her ancestors. She writes an editorial for the school newspaper in favor of removing the statue. Ashley writes a dueling editorial, arguing that Captain Whitmore also did good in the world and that the Copper Captain should stay. Noni and the Copper Captain provides students with an opportunity to consider different points of view and think critically about historic events. The book can also be used to teach students how to retell as well as identify and use dashes.
