Front Cover
Scholastic, 1995 - Navajo Indians - 48 pages
0 Reviews
Collection of twenty poems accompanied by as many strongly executed, full color paintings of mountains, plateaus, deserts, and wildlife from the American Southwest and of the Native people who live there. Book begins with spiritual elements, moves on to told stories, Begay's memories, members of the community, and rituals, and ends with hope for an early spring. Throughout there is a sense of striving to balance the old ways and beliefs with the intrusive outer world and to protect the earth, which is regarded as sacred.
