Walking Two Worlds (hardback)
This work of historical fiction is based on the true, inspiring story of the early education of Seneca leader Ely Parker. Hasanoanda was his Indian name, but in mission school he became “Ely.”
Despite the racism and deceit he faced, he never gave up his mission to receive an education that would enable him to aid the Seneca people in their quest to keep their land. As a young person, he learned how to live in the world of the white man, but never forgot his Seneca roots.
Also included is an afterword that highlights the careers and achievements of Ely Parker’s adult life.
Praise for Joseph Bruchac
“Joseph Bruchac’s books are about empowerment. They relay stories of morally sound Native protagonists who face great adversity. Often, the central characters are young adults whose elders have taught them about both their Indigenous traditions and self-defense. Their honed moral and physical strength allows these teenagers to face the various trials of an unjust world.”
