Red Moccasin takes place in 1935 in North Dakota. The land was dry and not much to eat. Anna is Native American that marries a German decent, they have one child. Tuberculosis was spreading and took her son, her husband was killed,thrown from a horse. Anna's side was Native american, she was making a pow wow dress for her niece and red moccasins to dance in. The niece had her life taken by the disease but not before she got to wear them.

I read this story out of a high school literature book while I was substituting for a class. I really enjoyed this story and wish they had more like this when I was growing up.

This would be a good story to read when studying the dust bowl. Also would be a good discussion piece about Native American marrying outside of the tribe. How they were treated and judged.
