"Walk Two Moons" narrates the story of Salamanca (Sal) Tree Hiddle throughout her journey from Euclid, Ohio, to Lewiston, Idaho to visit her mother's grave. She undertakes her journey with her grandparents, affectionately referred to as "Gram" and "Gramps." Along the way, they make several stops, one of which is in Wisconsin Dells.

At Wisconsin Dells, Gramps takes a nap while Salamanca and Gram look at an old fort and watch some Native American dancers and drummers. Here we learn that just like her mother, Sal sees the phrase "Indian" as being more appropriate than "Native American." During this time, Sal falls asleep, and when she wakes up, Gram has disappeared. Sal feels abandoned for a moment, but comes across two circles that the Indians had formed. Everyone was dancing around an older woman in a cotton dress who Sal recognizes as her grandmother. Sal sees her grandmother jumping and saying "Huzza, huzza" between the beats of the drums.

In Walk Two Moons, by Sharon Creech, Sal and her grandparents are traveling across the country to Idaho in order to visit her mother. They make several sightseeing stops on the way, including one in the Wisconsin Dells. Sal and her grandparents, who she calls Gram and Gramps, decide to visit the Dells in order to watch the Native American dancers. At one point, after sightseeing with her Gram, Sal falls asleep while lying in the grass. When she wakes up, she realizes her grandparents left her, and she doesn't know where they went. She anxiously walks around the Dells trying to find them, and eventually finds her Gram in the middle of a Native American dance circle, dancing and shouting "Huzza, huzza!"
