This book captivated me. It had me stuck from start to finish, and I read it multiple times. It's the story of a young girl's journey on a Native American forced migration route. It was simply magnificent.

Incredible account of Life for Native Americans that lived in the Grand Canyon are of the United States. A realistic view of their lifestyle, culture, and habits. We live such a life of pampered luxury, it was a real eye opener.

My son read this book when he was 12, and really enjoyed it. He told me it was probably the best book he ever read, which is saying a lot! He only reads when he has to.

One lovely spring day, fourteen-year-old Bright Morning and his friend Running Bird took their sheep to pasture. The sky was clear blue against the red buttes of the Canyon de Chelly, and the fields and orchards of the Navahos promised a rich harvest. Bright Morning was happy as she gazed across the beautiful valley that was the home of her tribe. She turned when Black Dog barked, and it was then that she saw the Spanish slavers riding straight toward her.

From the backcover:
a New York Times outstanding book of the year.

"The forced migration of Navahos from their original homeland in Arizona to Fort Sumner, NM is described from the Indian point of view in a poignantly moving first person story about Navaho life in the 1860s. --Booklist
