OK. I've pulled the book down. It will have to wait as the new Lee & Miller book just came.

Reading book now. 12/4/2020 9:13 AM

TEN MILE TREASURE by Andre Norton

I have always liked this book. But I think I need something more fun right now.

This is a pretty serious book, AND one where the parents are still there. This is not normal for a YA book (as we normally have orphans etc), but perhaps good for a book that is mostly written from the 6th grade girls viewpoint. (11 or 12 year old).

For 1981 this was probably a good view of native peoples. Here the Navaho are the 'good' Indians during the 1870's when the Apache were attacking the Far western (Arizona) Stage coach lines. For 1981, <rocking back & forth a little> the view of the Navaho family arriving in their motor home with trailer, is stilted. Or perhaps this correctly reflects the way an 11 year old view a family named Wildhorse (To my mind: Not a standard Navaho name) But soon, the children become friends. But if they were my younger sibs, I'm not sure how I would feel about two younger twins that I was cooped up in a stationwagon with for hours. Headaches anyone.

Full review in my Virtual reading convention.

My only comments that differ from Judith Tarr is that she is looking to place the area in Arizona, and I think closer to Albuquerque, New Mexico, and the Navajo Nation lands. I looked up Jimez Park for this.

I haven't been that way in long enough (and it was Tuson) that I don't remember when the saguaro bloom.

Judith Tarr reports SCARFACE as her next book.

_Ten Mile Treasure_ in e-book is .99 on amazon and bn.com; I'm not sure about elsewhere.  Even if you want to read it later, it's a good time to buy it now, while it's on sale.
