I got this ex-library hardcover, a 1972 Newbery honor book, from Better World Books, for another release copy. It includes Peter Parnall's stark, lovely illustrations.

It's about a young Navajo girl who enjoys her life in her family's hogan, and especially loves listening to her grandmother's stories. But one day the grandmother announces that as soon as the new rug is taken from the loom, she will "go to Mother Earth"... Young Annie decides that she's not going to let her mother finish weaving that rug, since she doesn't want to lose her grandmother, and the story follows her efforts to thwart the weaving. It's a touching story, and eventually the grandmother teaches Annie about the cycle of life, easing her fears about losing her, as she'd become part of the earth forever... "And Annie was breathless with the wonder of it."
