Sky Dancers by Connie Ann Kirk

Reviewed by Mrs. Bruno at Arongen

It is the 1930s, and during the week John Cloud's father is building skyscrapers in New York City. On weekends, his father travels back to their Mohawk reservation. When Papa visits home he is helping to repair their longhouse and reflecting on how busy city life is compared to their home on the reservation. This piques John Cloud's interest and he takes the train down to visit his father. He marvels at the Empire State Building that his father is helping to build. Although he is fascinated by the city, his heart is at peace back at home where he can listen to nature and appreciate the gifts of Mother Earth.
