Danny Blackgoat, Navajo Prisoner by Tim Tingle

Danny is a Navajo teenage boy when he watches soldiers burn down his home, kill his beloved sheep and capture his family to join in the Long Walk of 1864.  Danny decides to fight back, but he is labeled as a troublemaker.  He is then sent to a Civil War prison at Fort Davis where he is targeted for terrible treatment.  Danny has to battle bad men, but he does not forget his Navajo heritage along the way.  How will Danny survive and live out his destiny?  Find out in this quick read.

Again, this is a piece of history that is not talked about much which is why reading this type of novel is so important.  #weneeddiversebooks
