o of Acoma. To me, it was one of the most dramatic and tragic stories of the American Southwest.' In his story, the author takes us to modern Acoma and relives the events surrounding the Spanish assault on the cliff dwelling. His two main characters, Peter and Christina, live in this enchanting place where their relatives have lived since long before Columbus sailed. Their people lived a peaceful life for hundreds of years until 1600 when the Spanish, in their conquest of New Mexico, defeated the Acomas in a terrible slaughter. Peter tells the story of the battle; it is a part of his history. Children can add to their enjoyment of this book by asking their parents for some soft, colored pencils and coloring all the illustrations in the book.
