We are Wampanoags, People of the Breaking Day. Nippa'uus the Sun, in his journey through the sky, warms us first as he rises over the rim of the sea. At his birth each new morning we say, "Thank you, Nippa'uus, for returning to us with your warmth and light and beauty."
But it is Kiehtan, the Great Spirit, who made us all: we, the two-legged who stand tall, and the four-legged; those that swim and those that fly and the little people who crawl; and flowers and trees and rocks. He made us all, brothers sharing the earth.
So begins the story of the Wampanoag people, the tribe that lived in southeastern Massachusetts at the time the Pilgrims landed. In this companion book to The Pilgrims of Plimoth, winner of the Boston Globe-Horn Book Award for nonfiction, Marcia Sewall recreates the world of the Wampanoags, the People of the Breaking Day. In a voice that evokes the pride and natural poetry of these native people and in paintings glowing with life and light, the distinguished author-illustrator presents another view of an important time in American history, a time before the meeting of two very different cultures.

About the Author:

Marcia Sewall's children's books have been among the New York Times Best Illustrated, the ALA Notables, and School Library Journal and Booklist best books of the year. Her illustrations have been selected for exhibition by the American Institute of Graphic Arts and the Bratislava International Biennale. She is a lifelong resident of New England.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 2-5 --With the scholarship and sensitivity she brought to her presentation of The Pilgrims of Plimoth (Atheneum, 1986), Sewall tells the story of The People of the Breaking Day , the Wampanoag nation of Southeastern Massachusetts before the English settlers arrived. Using a collective narrative voice, she tells readers of all aspects of life within the tribe and describes the place of each member within the close-knit society. Chock-full of details of hunting, farming, and survival skills, as well as recreational and spiritual activities, she uses the seasonal cycles and also generational cycles to create a colorful prose poem about these native people and their rich cultural heritage. Her vibrant, almost impressionistic paintings, set against a stunning backdrop of New England wilderness, capture the very essence of these proud, industrious people and introduce readers to their unique, harmonious relationship with the natural world. Informative and inspirational.
