Teacher Ann Nolan Clark's story of Navajo life as seen through the eyes of a young Navajo girl. These poetically rendered accounts of Navajo culture and traditions describe a sustainable way of life that is rooted in the land and linked to the seasons. Along with illustrations of 'traditional' Navajo doing traditional activities such as herding, weaving, dyeing, spinning, and jewelry making, there are narratives on common seasonal activities. In the voice of a Navajo child, we hear about living in a hogan, watching animals, turning wool into woven products, and silversmithing.
Clark, a prolific, award-winning children's writer, field-researched her Navajo books in 1938-39. First published in 1940, they were an outstanding achievement for their sensitively rendered cultural content and for the beauty of Navajo artist Hoke Denetsosie’s illustrations. These unique books are among the most interesting and groundbreaking of all American children’s literature and appeal to young and adult readers. There are four Little Herder books: 1. In Autumn 2. In Winter 3. In Spring 4. In Summer
