Deer Dancer

Author: Gary Winters

Juan Araiza is a Yaqui Indian boy with no money, no shoes, no education, and no future. He leaves his village to search for his father—a man he never knew—in Mexico’s second largest city. He doesn’t find his father, but his native wit and grit take him all the way from the streets to a job in the federal government. He meets the charismatic Subcomandante Insurgente Marcos and soon finds himself feeling torn—his head in the government job and his heart in the black-masked Zapatista fight for Indian rights. Written for the young reader, ages 13-18. Well written and interesting to adults as well.
