Written as a memoir by a Navajo, later found out to be false, this book still should be read. Although not a "memoir" - you may view it as fiction, this book is still beautifully written and should be read. Not many contemporary books out there are about the Navajos or reservation life. Open your eyes and mind, forget the controversy surrounding the author and read a lovely piece of work.

This anthology of essays is the first of three books by Timothy Barrus, writing under the pseudonym "Nasdijj." Though he was excoriated and ostracized for pretending to be half-Navajo, he was in fact protecting the reservation community where he and his wife were living and working. These stories are true, closely observed, and heart-breaking. They are worth reading before condemning them out-of-hand.
