In this sixth collection of stories and verse, award-winning writer Luci Tapahonso finds sacredness in everyday life. Viewing a sunset in a desert sky, listening to her granddaughter recount how she spent her day, or visiting her mother after her father's passing, she finds traces of her own memories, along with echoes of the voices of her Navajo ancestors. The collection includes an audio CD of the author reading aloud from the book as well and her own voice is warm and inviting, like the simmering soup and blue corn meal of her childhood. These engaging words draw us into a workaday world that, magically but never surprisingly, has room for the Diyin Dine (the Holy People), Old Salt Woman, and Dawn Boy. When she describes her grandsons First Laugh Ceremonyexplaining that it was originally performed for White Shell Girl, who grew up to be Changing Womanher account enriches us and we long to hear more. Tapahonso weaves the Navajo language into her work like she weaves the first four rows of black yarn into a rug she is making for my little grandson, who inherited my fathers name: Hastiin Tstah Naaki Bs. As readers, we find that we too are surrounded by silent comfort, held lovingly in the confident hands of an accomplished writer who has a great deal to tell us about life.
