About this product
- DescriptionWritten in the 1930s by an authority on Native American life and lore, this Newbery Medal winner chronicles a boy's journey toward finding his vocation as a medicine man. Younger Brother's coming-of-age story and his tutelage by his priestly Uncle form the basis for a vivid portrait of Navajo beliefs and traditions.
- Author BiographyThe first white woman to have a sand painting prepared in her honor and the first permitted to film the sacred Mountain Chant ceremony for distribution as a feature-length movie, Laura Adams Armer was a noted painter and photographer for many years until she turned her hand to writing. She published her first book, <i>Waterless Mountain</i> (1931), at the age of 57 and received both the Newbery Medal and the Longmans, Green & Company's prize for juvenile fiction.</p>
