Thirteen-year-old Salamanca Tree Hiddle's mother has disappeared. While tracing her steps on a car trip from Ohio to Idaho with her grandparents, Salamanca tells a story to pass the time about a friend named Phoebe Winterbottom whose mother vanished and who received secret messages after her disappearance. One of them read, "Don't judge a man until you have walked two moons in his moccasins." Despite her father's warning that she is "fishing in the air," Salamanca hopes to bring her home. By drawing strength from her Native American ancestry, she is able to face the truth about her mother. Walk Two Moons won the 1995 Newbery Medal. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
From School Library Journal
Grade 6-9-An engaging story of love and loss, told with humor and suspense. Thirteen-year-old Salamanca Tree Hiddle's mother leaves home suddenly on a spiritual quest, vowing to return, but can't keep her promise. The girl and her father leave their farm in Kentucky and move to Ohio, where Sal meets Phoebe Winterbottom, also 13. While Sal accompanies her eccentric grandparents on a six-day drive to Idaho to retrace her mother's route, she entertains them with the tale of Phoebe, whose mother has also left home. While this story-within-a-story is a potentially difficult device, in the hands of this capable author it works well to create suspense, keep readers' interest, and draw parallels between the situations and reactions of the two girls. Sal's emotional journey through the grieving process-from denial to anger and finally to acceptance-is depicted realistically and with feeling. Indeed, her initial confusion and repression of the truth are mirrored in the book. Overall, a richly layered novel about real and metaphorical journeys.

I'm 12 years old and an avid reader,I think.I like to visit BARNES AND NOBLES and sit there for about two hours treading a book or two frombthe shelf.It's very convenient when yoiu don't want to waiyt for the library or buy the book.I've even made some friends over there.
I was reading about the time when Pheobe visits Sal and she is in a horrible mood.She insults Sals food or something-I forgot- so Sal said,"I do like you,Pheobe, but sometimes I want to dump your cholesteral free body outr the window."
I laughed so hard I cried.People were giving me funny looks.Maybe I just laugh too easily...but anyway,the poiunt is,even tthough I saved money by reading it at Barnes and Nobles,BUY THIS BOOK.You won't regret it.I promise.
