In My Mother's House
The Tewa Indians of New Mexico live close to the land. Their houses are made of earth, and the animals and crops they raise thrive -- because the Tewa respect Nature. This is a collection of poems by the Tewa children, as simple, graceful, and direct as their lives. A Caldecott Honor Book.
