Series: Landmark Events in Native American History. As a result, today's readers get biased and factually incorrect books and sadly, they don't know the book is that way. THE LONG WALK: THE FORCED NAVAJO EXILE is an outstanding exception to the status quo. Written by Jennifer Denetdale, it reflects the care she brings to the project as an insider (she is Dine herself) and the thoroughness she brings as a historian (she's currently on the faculty at Northern Arizona University).

Through a series of treaties, the first of which was signed in 1849, the Navajo Nation began to cede its homeland to the . By this time, some Americans had begun to settle in Navajo territory-the present-day Four Corners region of Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, and Utah-but the real impetus for wanting the Navajos' land was greed. Led by General James Carleton, the . Army hoped to remove the Navajos and claim the extensive mineral and pastoral wealth of their lands.

Collectively known as the Long Walk, the approximately 400-mile-long series of marches was endured by more than 8,000 men, women, and children. The forced removal from their homeland and the subsequent internment at Bosque Redondo left an indelible mark on the Navajo psyche that continues to the present day. Download FREE: uploading.

This history of the forced Navajo relocation to reservation lands at Bosque Redondo (Hweeldi) in New Mexico in the mid-1800s is unapologetically told exclusively from the Navajo point of view. As such, readers wedded to the settler view of American history and especially the settlement of the west will find it difficult reading.

This book exposes the series of events that facilitated the Navajo's removal from their homeland, their experiences during the Long Walk, their time at the Bosque Redondo reservation, their return home, and the ways in which they remember the Long Walk and the Bosque Redondo.

Took awhile to receive this in physical book form. Apparently not available for Kindle download but any writing by this author you can be sure you're getting the best of her and total honesty.
Granigrinn
Five stars because it is a significant book; however, it is agonizingly poorly written.

I always strive to have a correct history of the United States. This book adds to that knowledge and understanding.
Arashilkis
A part of history that not enough people are aware of. The power of survivance of the Dine is so well described!
Xar
This is a must read if you are truly interested in the real history of native people of our country. Their struggles on this walk should put us to shame. Please read and understand their story. A great story.

A tear jerking history of the Navajo

Overwhelmingly and historically, books about American Indians are written by people who are outsiders to the tribal nation the book is about. As a result, today's readers get biased and factually incorrect books and sadly, they don't know the book is that way.

THE LONG WALK: THE FORCED NAVAJO EXILE is an outstanding exception to the status quo. Written by Jennifer Denetdale, it reflects the care she brings to the project as an insider (she is Dine herself) and the thoroughness she brings as a historian (she's currently on the faculty at Northern Arizona University).

In five chapters, she provides substantive information about the Dine, grounding the reader in Dine life and culture prior to encounters with those responsible for their forced relocation. She effectively tells the reader that the Dine existed and thrived, long before the arrival of the Europeans. History, in other words, does not and did not begin with the Americans. The book has several photographs of people and artwork, a chronology, timeline, notes, bibliography, and, suggestions for further reading.

This is a MUST GET in every school library and, it should be in the children's or young adult section of every public library, too.
