its a good series for young girls. in excellent condition, brand new
For all ages.I love this story, In this book "Silent Stranger", in the Kaya Mystery series, the tribe is preparing for the winter Nez Perce Spirit Dances when an injured stranger arrives. The young woman's hands are badly burned, she sleepwalks, and she seems unable to speak. Despite misgivings, the tribe takes the woman in, and Kaya tries to befriend Hawk Woman, as she calls the stranger, even though the woman takes Kaya's dog, Tatlo, for her own. It's only after Kaya rescues Hawk Woman from a snowstorm that she finally learns the stranger's story. Shaw's narrative emphasizes tribal values (caring for the less fortunate, honoring the deceased) and the everyday life of the Nez Perce prior to European contact. There's is so much drama beyond uncovering Hawk Woman's story, and the ending seems is a surprise. But readers who have enjoyed Kaya's previous mysteries will want to read this wonderful book that teaches being kind to everyone even when they make no sense.
