Review: And Condors Danced

User Review  - Stephanie A. - Goodreads

While the characters didn't stand out a great deal to me, the time period was a rarer one, and between that and the physical setting (and, of course, a highly memorable title), that's what kept this book at the forefront of my memory. Read full review

She wrote more than 40 books during her lifetime including The Trespassers, Gib Rides Home, Gib and the Gray Ghost, and William's Midsummer Dreams. She has won numerous awards including three Newbery Honor books for The Egypt Game, The Headless Cupid and The Witches of Worm and the 1995 John and Patricia Beatty Award for Cat Running.
