People, Identity & Culture

Curious, headstrong and impatient, Shundeen is a young girl always in search of adventure. As the only Navajo in her school, and growing up away from the Navajo Reservation, Shundeen faces some difficult issues: she must retain her culture while surrounded by peers who don’t understand it. Every summer, Shundeen leaves her home in the city and lives with her grandparents on the Navajo Reservation. Her days are spent herding sheep, exploring the countryside and learning more about her culture with her constant companion Frosty, a black sheep almost as curious as herself. When a day of adventure culminates in a terrifying accident, Shundeen discovers there is more to herself than she had ever imagined. This book is bilingual (English and Navajo).
