Navajo Long Walk, The Tragic Story of a Proud People's Forced March from Their Homeland

Navajo Long Walk, The Tragic Story of a Proud People's Forced March from Their Homeland

by Shonto Begay (Illustrator)  •  Joseph Bruchac

  • HISTORY
  • 2002
  • HARD COVER
  • 64 PAGES
  • MIDDLE READERS (Age 9-12)

A shameful chapter of American policy, the Navajos' forced relocation in the 1860s, is introduced to a new generation of readers in this handsomely illustrated history. Told from the Navajos' perspective, Bruchac recalls the treacherous 470-mile march to a desolate reservation in New Mexico in this oversized picture book for older readers. Bruchac also studies the events leading up to this relocation and its impact. The story comes to life with the acryilic paintings of Shonto Begay. Ages 9-12.  (SWU131, $18.95)
