Rattlesnake Mesa

By Horn Book

EdNah New Rider Weber’s rich, distinctive voice infuses this ‘book of memories’ about growing up Indian under severe U.S government restrictions in the early 1900s… In spite of obvious hardships, Weber describes her school experiences with warmth and affection; her clear memory of things that amuse or frighten eight-year-olds and her love for the Southwestern landscape make this an unusually compelling memoir. Striking full-page black-and-white photographs illustrate each chapter and add to the book’s appeal.
