Editorial Reviews

KLIATT
This collection of 25 short stories seeks to foster "a deeper appreciation of a culture that is still under siege." Hozho means "walking in beauty, walking in a sacred manner, walking with a peaceful heart..." The editors observe that Indians cannot escape that they are "enmeshed in a fabric of â?˜white'." The collection is unique in that many of the stories, reflective as they are of lives with many difficulties, encompass humor. Sample stories: A man wishes to convert to Christianity and a young woman missionary longs to baptize him, but what are they to do about the two wives who are part of his loving, stable household? A modern version of a giveaway—Grab Day—involves rolls of paper towels, fruit, a beach ball, and cans of pop that are dangerous if one hits your head. Twin Indian high school athletes hope their father will not show up and embarrass them during the big game. A Mexican woman draws a curse onto her unfaithful husband. A radio station promises to pay for news called in but refuses when the story is "only" about a woman who shoots her drunken lover. The quality of writing is excellent, and readers will find an understanding of Indian culture and sometimes spirituality they hardly sensed in nonfiction material they may have read. KLIATT Codes: SA—Recommended for senior high school students, advanced students, and adults. 2001, McGraw Hill, Contemporary Books, 223p., $16.95. Ages 16 to adult. Reviewer: Edna M. Boardman; Minot, ND , November 2001 (Vol. 35, No. 6)
