As I ambled along, my appreciation of Mr. Ortiz's aesthetic increased. This collection is a treasure of fine examples of each author's work (I've read SOME of many). As a committed (unhospitalized, however) cogitator of my navel, I was intrigued by the existential aspects of many of these stories. The topics and characters span the breadth of contemporary life on and off the rez and range from heartwrenching to inspiring. Five stars!!
