To walk in beauty: a Navajo family's journey home
To Walk in Beauty takes readers on the journey of the Begay family of Jeddito Wash, Arizona, on the Navajo Reservation. This is an intimate portrait of a family's decision to reclaim its cultural identity. The book highlights in intensely personal terms the sense of cultural dissolution long associated with the tragedy of Navajo history, and it examines the spiritual healing that can take place when cultural identity is reclaimed.
