From the Publisher
Editors Note On a beautiful spring morning while grazing their sheep, Bright Morning and her friend Running Bird see two men coming toward them. Right away, Bright Morning knows who the men are: slavers come to the Navaho country to steal girls and sell them to families in town. In minutes, both girls are caught and taken away. But Bright Morning does not give up trying to escape and eventually finds her way back home. What Bright Morning can?t know, though, is that the entire Navaho way of life is about to change forever. ?The very simplicity of the writing, at times almost terse, makes more vivid the tragedy of the eviction and the danger and triumph of the return.? ?The Bulletin ?Poignantly moving.? ?Booklist?Beautifully written, Sing Down the Moon is a memorable reading experience ? for any age.? ?Book World
