Through the alternating voices of twelve-year-old Morning Girl and her younger brother Star Boy, we step into the extraordinarily rich lives of an indigenous family on a Bahamian Island in 1492-just as their paradise is about to be discovered and a new world order begins to take shape. Beautifully painted in words by Michael Dorris, and narrated with great sensitivity by sister/brother voices Eliza and Riley Duggan, this exceptional recording will find its place in the hearts of listeners of all ages. Recommended for Grades 4 and up.
