Navajos Wearing Nikes: A Reservation Life

University of New Mexico Press, 2011. Hardcover. Fien in bright, crisp dust jacket a touch faded at the spine. Hardcover.211 pp. with bibliography, appendix of Navajo pronunciation. The young author's family moved across the country to an Arizona town located on a Navajo reservation the size of West Virginia. In this memoir , Kristofic introduced readers to the complex world of the modern Navajo Nation--a place where Anglo and Navajo coexist in a tenuous truce, a place of spirits where the supernatural is a part of everyday life. His friendships with local boys lead him to understand the wit of the Navajo language, how to make fry bread, how to find hozho (a beautiful harmony). Fine / fine. Item #E28446
