The books in this section are usually hardcover and in decent condition, though we'll sometimes offer hard-to-find books in lesser condition at a reduced price. Though we often put images of the book with their original dust jackets, the copies here won't always (or even often) have them. If that is important to you, please call ahead or say so in the order comments! 

This is an appealing story of a little Navajo Indian girl, Bah, and a little freckle-faced white boy, Billy, who helped Bah find an ear of corn which she made into a doll. The doll was unfortunately devoured by a big hungry sheep, causing great grief to the Little Indian maiden. But the sad end of the doll led eventually to the owning of a real papoose doll—and also caused Billy to write a story of Navajo Indians which, submitted in a magazine story contest, won Billy the prize—a wonderful radio. This he generously gave to Bah because she had furnished him so much information for his story.

The story is told in a simple, delightful and charming manner that will capture the heart of a child. Reproductions of photographs taken by the author, illustrate the story.
