An enchanting, authentic Navajo tale about the importance of keeping one's life in balance. Wandering Girl, a strong-willed shepherdess, promises Spider Woman she won't weave too long. But as soon as spring bursts into glorious colour, she begins creating the most beautiful blanket in the world. "Begay's dramatic shifts of perspective, his innate sensitivity to the land and people depicted, and the text's powerful message about pride's deadly effects combine in an appealing and meaningful way." - School Library Journal, starred review
