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.

Review: The Morning the Sun Went Down

User Review  - Goodreads

Usually, I am not big on autobiographies- but this novel is a really magical exception. Darryl Babe Wilson (Pit River Nation) explains his struggles trying to merge his tradtional tribal ways with the forces of the western world. Beautiful writing and a really heart-warming journey.
