The Girl Who Chased Away Sorrow

Categories

by Ann Turner

CoverIn January of 1864, a Navajo girl named Sarah Nita loses her family to some American troops. She and her sister Kaibah must flee to a canyon, where she finds people in the same tribe as her father. Once they get caught as well, she makes it her mission to find her lost family.

It was an interesting book. Not much big vocabulary, but Sarah Nita does tell nice stories. I liked it, and it was a good book.

If you are into Native Americans and nature, then this is the book you've been looking for!
