Description

Danny Blackgoat: Rugged Road to Freedom is one of the titles in 7th Generations' PathFinders Series. This series of novels are known as high/low books—written at a lower reading level but with high-interest, age-appropriate plots. Designed for reluctant readers from age 12 and up, these books feature linear story lines, limited vocabulary and short sentences. The layout and print size also contribute in making the books easier to read. Rugged Road to Freedom continues the story about Navajo teenager Danny Blackgoat who was taken prisoner during the Navajo Long Walk in 1864. At the conclusion of the first historical novel the youth escapes the prison camp and makes an effort to return to his family's home. In this second installment Danny must still face many obstacles in order to rescue his family and find freedom. Whether it’s the soldiers and bandits who are chasing him or the dangers of the harsh desert climate, Danny ricochets from one bad situation to the next, but his bravery doesn’t falter and he never loses faith. Author Tim Tingle, an enrolled member of the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma, is a remarkable storyteller who keeps readers engaged with straightforward action sequences and character development. Recommended. Reading Level: 4.5
