The country changed during the next moon. The flatlands rolled up into hills and we crossed many draws where water ran. Grass was springing everywhere, which helped us feed our starving horses.

The country changed during the next moon. She came back about dark, not having found. her. That night the medicine man came and touched the little girl and we had a sing. The night was half over and I was sitting beside the fire with the little girl in my arms. She held one of my fingers tight in her small fist and I was singing a song to her about a bird in a pine tree. I sang another song to her and another before I was aware that she was no longer listening, that she had died quietly in my arms.

The moon was rising over the hill behind us. But it was dark night in the draw where we were hidden. We came to a clump of trees beside the stream. Here the leader shouted at us. I saw him swing down from the saddle and take a rifle from its holster. There was no other way out of the draw save the narrow way we had come. The two other Spaniards pulled up their horses. Tall Boy told us to ride on and stop behind the trees.

The moon rose and in a short time shone down into the canyon. We gathered more berries and some roots and stayed there until the moon came up. Then we started off again, following the river northward, traveling by the moon's white glow. It showed the river winding toward the south, past our peach orchards and corrals and hogans. Where the tall cliffs ended, where the river wound out of the canyon into the flatlands, the moon shone on white tents and tethered horses. The soldiers have come," my uncle said. They will not look for us until morning. When it swung westward and left the canyon in darkness we lay down among the trees.

Books by SCOTT O'DELL. Island of the Blue Dolphins. 1. ON THE HIGH MESAS above our canyon spring came early that year. The piñón trees shook off their coverings of snow in the month of the deer. Warm winds melted the snow and blue water gathered under the trees and ran through the meadows and down the steep barrancas. Far to the north, where the stone walls of the canyon stand so close together that you can touch them with your outstretched hands, the waters met and flowed toward the south, past Spider Rock and Lost Sheep Mountain, at last in a big loop past our village.

Sing Down the Moon book. The smooth consistency that always marks the award-winning writing of Scott O'Dell is evident in Sing Down the Moon as clearly as in any of his other most famous titles. Scott O'Dell has a way of telling heartbreaking stories from the annals of history with an even-keeled style that allows us to see the sad happenings of yesteryear from an objective standpoint, getting neither too high nor too low emotionally as we follow the events of the story.

In the 1860's Bright Morning, Running Bird, and their Navajo kinsmen are forced to abandon their homes after Spanish soldiers destroy their crops

Comments:

Fhois
The book is about what happened to the Navahos and the long walk. The soldiers take over their home and move them somewhere else. The main character is Bright Morning, she is strong and smart. If your sensitive you may not want to read this, I loved the book!
Hellstaff
Recommended book for book club. The story is a tragedy but the main character has hope. Good historical fiction about factual events. Great for teens and adults. Quick read.
Zamo
My 10 year old loved the reality of it!
Undeyn
Purchased as a 8th grade school requirement, my son liked the book.
Arryar
The first half of the book has little to do with the Long Walk but is interesting and creates the characters. The Long Walk section is very mild, considering what really happened and how many people died, but it is a good start to learn about this significant event in Native American and White American history and interaction.
Arthunter
Wonderful book. I like Island of the Blue Dolphins better tho.
Goltizuru
My 10 year old daughter listened to the audiobook of this and enjoyed. She loves Scott O'Dell's Native American stories!
It was a good example of taking difficult situations and working through it or fixing it. She showed good character as a friend and would show loyalty by looking out for her friends. Good examples.
