The Day Mother Earth Cried
Elina, a young Cheyenne Indian girl, narrowly escapes death when her village is attacked by White soldiers. She, along with her grandfather, Spotted Owl, and her childhood sweetheart, Little Wolf, are among the few survivors of the massacre.
Her search for a better place to live—a place where Mother Earth and her children live in harmony—takes her and Little Wolf to new lands where they encounter oppressed people of other cultures—Negros and Mexicans. They too, she learns, have suffered at the hands of White settlers. It was a time in America’s history when the U.S. Government—in its quest for additional territory—was rapidly and ruthlessly displacing native American Indians and Mexicans. It was a time when the institution of slavery was being challenged. The story begins in the year 1864 in a Cheyenne encampment in Colorado Territory.
