Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
When Bright Morning takes her sheep to pasture, she gazes across the beautiful valley that is the home of her Navaho tribe and sees Spanish slavers riding straight toward her.

Review:
"The forced migration of Navahos from their original homeland in Arizona to Fort Summer, New Mexico, is described from the Indian point of view in a poignantly moving first-person story about Navaho life in the mid-1860s." -- Booklist

"Beautifully written, immensely moving, Sing Down the Moon is a memorable reading experience--for any age." --Book World

"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 retum. Recommend." --Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books.

"An outstanding Book of the Year." --The New York Times.

From the Publisher

Review:
One lovely spring day, fourteen-year-old Bright Morning and her friend Running Bird take their sheep to pasture. The sky is clear blue against the red buttes of the Canyon de Chelly, and the fields and orchards of the Navahos promise a rich harvest. Bright Morning is happy as she gazes across the beautiful valley that is the home of her tribe. Happy until the barking of Black Dog disturbs her and she tums. It is then that she sees the Spanish slavers riding straight toward her.
