Toronto Tricycle Press 2003 1582460809 / 9781582460802 First Edition Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket Illustrated by Begay, Shonto 
Ex-library book, but still in very nice condition - overall wear is very light. Gorgeous illustrations throughout. Usual ex-library markings, including laminated cover and front and spine sticker. ; ; 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall; From Booklist: Gr. 3-6. "The snow slowed the world, the Navajo world, " begins this picture book for older readers, originally published in 1977, which has been reissued with new illustrations. Told in verse, it follows 11-year-old Alice Yazzie through 12 months on the reservation, where she lives with her grandfather. The spare, atmospheric poetry (one poem for each month) vividly describes the landscape and Alice's activities, often with startling intimacy. At times, Alice's perspective is political (she speaks out against Columbus in school) ; at other times it is lyrical (lightning is "ghosts chasing their tails"). Begay's paintings, impressionistic dabs and swirls of brilliant color, sometimes muddy faces and expressions, but like the words, the wild patterns and hues leave room for imaginations to fill in the spaces....
