About this title


He is a buffalo out of Montana. He has humped shoulders and slits for eyes. . . . Just remember, old blossom eater, you can stare down the wind. This old rodeo ain't everything.

Alice Yazzie is eleven, going on twelve, and with each month that passes she is beginning to see, beginning to feel. In January, she carries the smallest lamb into the hogan, because "He's all new and starry. He's too new to be cold." In July, she walks to market. "Six miles for cupcakes and strawberry pop!" In October, she is learning to sew, staying in recesses, "whipping and stitching" a costume like no one else's. And in December, Alice is sure Grandfather Tsosie has made her a bracelet, "Blue and silver-the way the world is."

New edition showcases renowned Navajo illustrator.

Thoroughly engaging and spirited female character.

Afterword provides insight into Navajo culture and symbols.

Perfect addition to Native American collections.
