Publisher Comments:

The Spanish Slavers were an ever-present threat to the Navaho way of life.  One lovely spring day, fourteen-year-old Bright Morning and her friend Running Bird took their sheep to pasture.  The sky was clear blue against the red buttes of the Canyon de Chelly, and the fields and orchards of the Navahos promised a rich harvest.  Bright Morning was happy as she gazed across the beautiful valley that was the home of her tribe.  She turned when Black Dog barked, and it was then that she saw the Spanish slavers riding straight toward her.  

Synopsis:

A young Navajo girl recounts the events of 1864 when her tribe was forced to march to Fort Sumner as prisoners of the white soldiers.

Synopsis:

The Spanish slavers were an ever present threat to the Navajo way of life. This historical novel is about a young Navajo girl who is kidnapped and enslaved by Spaniards and then rescued by her husband-to-be.
