Staff Reviews

From the author of Island of the Blue Dolphins, this is the story of Bright Morning growing up in her tribe and her resilience in the face of the near apocalyptic encroachment of White Settlers in her region. More than an honest and well written historical fiction, Scott O'Dell gives us a beautiful story and a beautiful heroine with enough spirit and beauty to withstand overwhelming change and still find beauty in the world.

Just read it. Trust me.

— From Chelsea


A 1971 Newbery Honor Book

The Navajo tribe's forced march from their homeland to Fort Sumner by white soldiers and settlers is dramatically and courageously told by young Bright Morning.

"The very simplicity of the writing, at times almost terse, makes more vivid the tragedy of the eviction and the danger and triumph of the return." The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
