When the Shadbush Bloomsby Carla Messinger, Susan Katz
In warm glowing paintings, two Native American girls from different times—the past and the present—live through the seasons, side by side, in the warm embrace of their families. The past is nearly 400 years ago, when the Lenape people lived a traditional life barely touched by European traders. The present is contemporary America, as the Lenape continue to adapt to a changing world but remain close to the land and to each other.
