Overview

"This is the compelling narrative of the wife of an Indian trader in the desert wilderness of the Navajos before World War I. No other book about life at such trading posts equals its revealing portrayal of the land and the people, and its implication of the racial differences still confronting us today."-From the introduction by Frank Waters "[Hilda Faunce's] narrative bears authenticity on its face on every page. It deserves to stand high among the many books that have been written about the Indians of the Southwest because of the intimacy and extent of its firsthand knowledge of the Navajo, the simple, clear, straight-away style in which the story is told, the depth of its understanding and the justness of its appreciation of Navajo character."-New York Times. "Mrs. Faunce makes an unforgettable picture of a trading store and a desert people."-Books. "A beautiful and revealing book."-New Republic. "It never loses its hold."-Saturday Review of Literature.
