Earthway (Ella Clah)by Aimee Thurlo
Synopses & Reviews
Ella Clah has found her place on the Navajo Reservation, in her tribe, her clan, and her family. She has seen the Diné at their worst--and at their best--as they balance the modern era with the traditional Navajo way of life.
The Navajo are building a nuclear power plant on the Reservation. Though the tribe voted for the plant, there are those who believe that nuclear power is inherently dangerous--and particularly so for the Navajo, due to past uranium mining operations that contaminated land and water and sickened many Navajo workers and their families.
A group of activists is determined to do whatever is necessary to stop the plant--assault, sabotage, domestic terrorism. When a fellow Navajo Police officer is injured in an attack aimed at Ellas boyfriend, Ella vows to do whatever it takes to find the terrorists and bring them to justice.
Navajo Police Special Investigator Ella Clah is searching for whoever planted a bomb in a university classroom and nearly killed one of her fellow cops, a bomb that seems to have been intended for Ellas close friend, the Rev. Bilford Tome. The trail leads to activists determined to keep the Navajo Reservation pure by sabotaging the construction of the tribes first nuclear power plant.
