Read this Hillerman rather than the recent ones. Warm, funny, suspenseful, and full of Navajo and local color. A true experience.Published on March 23 2001 by "siliconvalleythinker"
This was my first book relating the Navajo history.. It was impossible to put down. The mixture of mystery and mystic was tantalizing. I can't wait to read more of his books.Published on March 13 2001 by Ruth A. Caldwell
