Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

A biography of a contemporary woman, and also a lesson about the power of the past. It tells the story of Ella Bedonie, who was born on the Navajo Indian reservation in Arizona and found herself forced to balance her religious beliefs and family ties with the lures of materialism and modernity when a government relocation program moved her family into a suburban housing development. Woven through her story--a tale of negotiating the distance between the sacred and the profane--is her father's narrative of her parents' own life and times. Lacks an index.
