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.
