A Novel About the Navajo Marines of WWII
I actually wasn’t interested in this book at first, but my mom made me read it. Later, a couple pages in, my mom couldn’t get my nose out of this book to get me to set the table. As the title suggests, the book is about a Navajo code talker, code talkers in general, and the huge service they did for the United States. The main character starts as a young Navajo boy, leaving for a bilagáana (white man) boarding school. He goes through middle school, high school, then enlists in the marines. This book is really, really good. I would definitely recommend it with a five star review. There are no other books i’ve read on this subject, so I can’t compare it. What I think the author was trying to do was kind of spread the story of the Navajo code talkers so people would know the truth about the role they played in WWII.
