Overview

Full Moon and Snowflower are Nim-ipuu (Nez Perce) teens in White Bird's band, swept up in the turmoil of war and the desperate flight from Idaho to Canada in 1877. Orphaned as young children, the two siblings are forced to mature early as they live with their uncle Sits By the Fire, who enjoys gambling and alcohol a little too much. They face the clash of cultures head on when they are captured by white settlers and placed in a boarding school.

Amidst this conflict, like a bright ray of hope, gleams a spunky little golden palomino mare, Horse of the Dawn.

This is a wholesome, educational story of how two teenagers dealt with their Indian heritage and the white soldiers who di not understand them. A must read!

Horse of the Dawn is a very beautifully written, adventurous novel. Once I started it, I couldn't put it down. It is appealing to everyone, not just young adults.
