Scott O'Dell's novel, Sing Down the Moon, tells the story of the Navajo "long march," when they are forced from their home in the Four Corners area of the Southwest United States (bordering Arizona, New Mexico, Utah and Colorado) to a military base in Santa Fe. Based on a true historical event from 1863, O'Dell's young Nahajo women, Bright Morning, serves as narrator and the main character of the novel. She tells the story of her capture by Spanish slave traders, the sad march under the military supervision of the famed explorer Col. Kit Carson, and her marriage to Tall Boy.
