Code Talker: A Novel About the Navajo Marines of World War Two
by Joseph Bruchac

Based on real life stories this fictional tale is of Ned Begay, a sixteen-year-old Navajo boy who becomes a code talker by just speaking his native language. His grueling journey is eye-opening and inspiring.

Throughout World War II, Navajo code talkers were a crucial part of the U.S. effort, sending messages back and forth in an unbreakable code that used their native language. They braved some of the heaviest fighting of the war, and with their code, they saved countless American lives. Yet their story remained classified for more than twenty years.
