Description

Bruchac brings to life for young adults the stories of some of the unsung heroes of World War II - here, the young Navajo men who were a crucial part of the American effort in sending and receiving messages that used their native language.
After being taught in a boarding school run by whites that Navajo is a useless language, Ned Begay and other Navajo men are recruited by the Marines to become Code Talkers, sending messages during World War II in their native tongue.
