PIECES OF WHITE SHELL. A Journey to Navajoland. Illustrations by Clifford Brycelea

New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1984. First edition. Hardcover. Signed by the author on the half-title page. This unusual book is an introduction to Navajo culture by a storyteller. Steeped in the lore of the Navajo reservation, where she worked as a teacher, the author came to see Navajo legend and ritual as touchstones for evaluating her own experience. She presents them here as a means for all people to locate their own history, traditions, and sense of how to live well. A near fine copy in a near fine dust jacket. Item #15280
