Walk Two Moons Literature Unit

By Sharon Creech

Salamanca Tree Hiddle wants desperately to see her mother. Shortly after Sal turned 13, her mother left for Lewistown, Idaho because she was unhappy at home. Sal and her father were left to try to cope and manage on their own. Sal has decided that she needs to go and see her mother in order to go on with her life. Her grandparents offer to take a driving trip with her to Idaho and make it a family journey.

During the trip with her grandparents, Sal recounts the story of her friend Phoebe Winterbottom who has had a similar experience. Phoebe’s mother left her family as well. Sal’s grandparents are captivated by the story and the ways in which it parallels Sal’s life. The journey is not only peppered by Sal’s stories but also the locations they choose to visit. Information about Mt. Rushmore, Old Faithful, Yellowstone, and the Badlands National Park are woven into the story.

There is a surprise for readers once they reach the point of Sal’s arrival in Lewistown. Sal’s mother is actually dead. She died on her trip to Lewistown in a bus accident. Sal needed to see the site of the accident and her mother’s grave to help her accept the finality of the situation. This is another excellent novel by award-winning Sharon Creech.
