In this beautifully illustrated book, you are taken on a personal tour of daily life at San Ildefonso Pueblo with Sonja Roybal, who is 10, and her 8-year-old sister Desiree. Growing up in San Ildefonso, they enjoy what most other American girls enjoy, from bike riding to swimming to computer games to playing with friends. They also share a rich traditional life that preserves the customs and prayers of Pueblo life. A personal story that will appeal to both children and adults, Pueblo Girls has much to teach about Pueblo Indian life and about the rewards and challenges of keeping an irreplaceable traditional culture alive in the modern world.
