Walk Two Moons, winner of the Newbury Medal, intelligently and without fuss tells the story of a young girl whose mother has gone away from her, but who has a long journey ahead before she can come to terms with the reality that has haunted her for such a long time.
Salamanca Hiddle and her delightfully eccentric grandparents drive through America, taking in the sights, sounds and smells of the country as she recounts the story of her friend Phoebe's mother. As the tale unfolds, so too does the story of Salamanca's own mother, bringing true meaning to the American Indian proverb: "Don't judge a man until you have walked two moons in his moccasins". Sharon Greech takes the reader on a spellbinding, emotional journey through love, anger and grief, but never once relies on schmaltz or sugary sentiment to make her point in this sassy, smart and canny little book. --Susan Harrison --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
"[This] engaging story of love and loss, told with humor and suspense...[is] a richly layered novel about real and metaphorical journeys."-- "SLJ." "The book is packed with humor and affection and is an odyssey of unexpected twists and surprising conclusions."-- "1995 Newbery Award Selection Committee."See all Product Description

You haven't lived until you've read this book!
This book had three stories in it the story of phoebe and her family.Salamanca and her family and the story of gram and gramps.These stories are all hiding parts of each other and when the parts are revealed a whole new side of the story is opened up to the reader.
By the end of the book I was crying because it was so sad.
Read this book!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The story is funny throughout, but also very touching and sad, it is one of the few books that I have ever cried at.
If you like a story with laughter, a little romance, some sadness & a brilliant twist, this is the book for you.
This story takes place mostly in her grandparent's car and at her home in Bybanks but what really impressed me of the author's choices was that she made the main character tell the story while she was in her grandparent's car and through her thinking she moved us to a different setting and I didn't feel like the story took place in the car any more.Read more ›
