Rattlesnake Mesa

By Family Fun Magazine

Autobiography at its best! Elegant, honest storytelling reveals childhood joys and fears during a very tough time in the early 1900s, when the United States government forced Native American children into cruel, rigid, military-like schools. With great reverence for the truth of the people’s teachings, and determination to walk in beauty while surviving the “bad, ugly, or mean” experiences, Ednah is somehow able to engage us in her amazing life without bitterness. From the poetic beauty of her words to the mesmerizing black-and-white photographs, this treasure is a true gift to the universe of children’s literature.
