"(A) deeply moving, must-read for mothers and daughters everywhere." - Chanticleer Reviews

In a series of intimate, revelatory personal histories, Navajo grandmothers, mothers, and daughters in twenty-one families tell their stories. They open up about how they have been shaped by powerful cultural and historical forces—and by their love for each other.

In these compelling, multi-generational oral histories, collected by a former teacher with profound admiration for Navajo culture, women talk about their experiences in their own words. As they do, their faces are captured in defining portraits.

Woven into the women’s stories are tales from Navajo history and culture, including Changing Woman, the coming-of-age ceremony (kinaaldá), the Long Walk, education, and the importance of sheep to Navajo lifeway.

"A valuable look at how Navajo women band together to celebrate life’s joys, push through adversity, and guide the next generation." - Foreword Clarion Reviews
