In an attempt to "civilize" Native Americans in the 1860s, U.S. soldiers forced thousands of Navajo to march 400 miles from their homeland to a desolate reservation. Hundreds died along the way, and the survivors found unspeakable living conditions at their destination. Powerfully written from the perspective of the Navajos and illustrated with deeply personal interpretations of historic events, this book sheds fresh light on a shameful episode of American history. Full color illustrations.
