This is one of two awesome books my sister Julia got me for Christmas--it's a collection of prose and poetry by a Navajo writer about her Indian Boarding School experience. Especially since all of the people here I know over 40 pretty much shared her experience or a similar one, it's a fascinating read. Documents a very interesting time when Navajo youth were picking and choosing what parts of white culture to assimilate and what parts of Diné culture to keep around. Thanks, Hoolia!

Contemporary reflection on the Indian boarding school experience with humor and childlike reflections.
She gets in the shadows of street lamps and watches the darkness mixed with the memory of youth in this tender look back at the days.
