1 Review
Nonfiction. " THE MORNING THE SUN WENT DOWN is one of the most unique and memorable autobiographies I've ever read. With the heart of a poet, the tongue of a storyteller, and a good bit of that wisdom of spirit that his elders used in his upbringing, Wilson tells a powerful story of a world where magic is not dead. If you are only going to read one autobiography this year, make it this one" -Joseph Bruchac, author of Native American Stories.
