Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Gisela Jernigan
Ten-year-old Amee-nah is dreading the upcoming summer vacation because his clubfoot and resulting limp will once again keep him from joining other boys his age at sheep camp. Zuni Pueblo of northeastern New Mexico, in 1939, is the setting for this addition to the "Amazing Indian Children's" series. Besides missing out on sheep camp, Amee-nah also wishes he could participate in traditional stick races and other sports and even regrets his nickname, "Amee-nah." which means lazy. This simple, straightforward novel describes how, with strength and determination, and some help from his friend, Mawee, and his caring mother, coach and doctor, Amee-nah succeeds in recovering from an operation to correct his foot and fulfills his dream of attending sheep camp and running in the stick races.
