Descriptions The World in Grandfather’s Hands

Eleven-year-old Jimmy is angry and homesick when he and his mother move from the pueblo to Grandfather Whitefeather’s house in the city. Grandfather is a wise and patient guide, but Jimmy hates the city anyway. He doesn’t understand — or really want to know — why they have to be here. But Mother has a reason for showing Jimmy the world outside the pueblo. This sensitive, insightful novel contrasts Native American culture and white urban society, the desert’s beauty and the city’s bustling chaos, and captures Jimmy’s struggle to adjust-and the hope he finds in Grandfather’s gentle wisdom.
