The thirteen moons of the Sioux year
When the snows of winter disappear, a young boy helps his father cut a moon-counting stick, which they keep inside their tipi. With the rising of each new moon, a notch is made in the stick, and the boy watches the changing seasons. He sees his father dancing the Sun Dance during the Cherry-Ripening Moon; he witnesses the golden-red trees during the Moon of the Falling Leaves. And he learns that changes come and will come again.
Acclaimed writer Eve Bunting's lyrical, haunting text, combined with John Sandford's rich and carefully researched paintings, create a remarkable picture book about one Native American boy's journey toward adulthood.About the Author:
