Patricia Miles Martin is the author of several books for young readers. Much of her writing is inspired by the time she spent living on a farm in Kansas and a Navajo reservation.
Peter Parnall is the award-winning illustrator of over 80 books, some of which he also authored. Many of his books involve animals and nature, especially in the desert.
Annie and the Old One received a Newbery Honor and a Christopher Medal.
Annie, an Indian child, resorts to extremes in trying to prevent her dear grandmother from dying. The "old one" has said she will return to Earth when she has finished helping Annie and Annie's mother to weave their new rug, so the child does everything she can to delay the project. When the grandmother explains her beliefs, Annie understands and no longer attempts to hold back time. PW praised Miles for a story representing "a difficult challenge" and Parnall's pictures that "reflect the dignity of thetext," in the 1971 Newbery Honor book.
