Content descriptions

General Note: Best Young Adult Book, American Indian Library Association, 2016
MN American Indian literature.
Summary, etc.: "The hour has come to speak of troubled times. It is time we spoke of Skullyville." Thus begins Rose Goode's story of her growing up in Indian Territory in pre-statehood Oklahoma. Skullyville, a once-thriving Choctaw community, was destroyed by land-grabbers, culminating in the arson on New Year's Eve, 1896, of New Hope Academy for Girls. Twenty Choctaw girls died, but Rose escaped. She is blessed by the presence of her grandmother Pokoni and her grandfather Amafo, both respected elders who understand the old ways. Soon after the fire, the white sheriff beats Amafo in front of the town's people, humiliating him. Instead of asking the Choctaw community to avenge the beating, her grandfather decides to follow the path of forgiveness. And so unwinds this tale of mystery, Indian-style magical realism, and deep wisdom. It's a world where backwoods spiritualism and Bible-thumping Christianity mix with bad guys; a one-legged woman shop-keeper, her oaf of a husband, herbal potions, and shape-shifting panthers rendering justice. -- Provided by publisher.

    Set in pre-statehood Oklahoma (Indian Territory) in the final years of the nineteenth century, this novel travels from the poignant, even tragic, to the comic, while covering a community of Choctaw Indians and their white neighbors (nahullos), not excluding spirits. Tingle, Choctaw author of several children's books and the story collection Walking the Choctaw Road (2003), is most sure-­footed in the sections narrated by Rose, who as a child witnesses the 1896 New Year's Eve burning of the New Hope Academy for Girls, causing the death of a deaf friend. Her tale begins, "Let us now talk of Skullyville," the eastern Oklahoma town where, along with the larger community of Spiro, the action unfolds. Rose's grandfather William Goode is attacked without provocation by the drunken town marshal, Hardwicke, an evil bully, who becomes the center of the story. Tingle portrays the townspeople's actions credibly and brings the unique setting of Skullyville to life in this singular tale of vengeance, compassion, and redemption.
