    One thought on “Danny Blackgoat, Navajo Prisoner”

    1. Danny Blackgoat, Navajo Prisoner by Tim Tingle is part of the Pathfinders series. The series has two goals. One is to present books that preserve the history, culture and stories of Native people. The other is to provide books which will hold the attention of reluctant or struggling readers. In narrating the trials of a fictional sixteen-year-old who survived the very real Navajo Long Walk of 1864, Tingle provides insight into an important event in Navajo history. With his emphasis on high actio [...]

    2. Finding this book at my local library made me so happy. To see that it was publishes by a company that puts out books about Native teens and by Native writers? Even happier. When I saw the rating was so low, it made me wonder. I was quite a ways into the book and everything seemed perfect to me. This was an amazing read, and reminds me of books kept in middle school homerooms. Tim tells the story of Danny Blackgoat, a Navajo kid who sees things around him destroyed in many ways.Tim demonstrates [...]

    3. This one is all about plot which really disappointed me. The characters tended to be pretty flat and I wanted to know them better and see their complexities. The plot was a lot about the cruelty that the Navajos experienced on their forced march to Fort Sumner and I think it would have been better if there was more exploration of the culture that caused people to be so cruel and more depth to the characters that showed at least why they were so nasty. As it was, it read like it was full of stere [...]

    4. I've always heard about the Cherokee Trail of Tears, but I don't recall anything about the Navajo Long Walk in 1864 This is the story of Danny Blackgoat during that time. He and his family are captured, beaten, and forced to leave their home. When reaching their destination, Danny is treated as a prisoner and is forced to work in the fields where he is bullied and threatened almost continually. He does become friends with a fellow prisoner as they both dream of freedom and opportunity.Seems to b [...]

    6. I really appreciate that this book and series exists. Native American stories need to be available and told because they are silenced often. I learned a bit about the Long Walk, which I hadn't heard about before, but the writing was a little stilted and some parts of this story were a bit unbelievable.

    7. This is a great high interest/low reading level series by Tim Tingle. Middle school readers will enjoy the fast moving plot plot that is full of action. More advanced readers may draw more from the historical content, learning about the Navajo Long Walk. I anticipate this series will be popular with the middle school boys and I look foward to the next adventure of Danny Blackgoat.

    8. The writing was a little stilted, but the historical aspect is excellent. With so few books about the Long Walk, this could be an excellent resource for classrooms, especially in New Mexico.
