Danny Blackgoat, Rugged Road to Freedom (Pathfinders)

Danny Blackgoat, a Diné (Navajo) teenager, was taken to a Civil War prison camp during the Long Walk of 1864. He escaped in volume one of this series, but in the second installment, he must still face many obstacles in order to rescue his family and find freedom. Whether it is the soldiers and bandits who are chasing him or the dangers of the harsh desert climate, Danny ricochets from one bad situation to the next — yet his bravery doesn't falter and he never loses faith.
