David Crow is the author of the award-winning memoir The Pale-Faced Lie.

David spent his early years on the Navajo Indian Reservation in Arizona and New Mexico. Through grit, resilience, and a thirst for learning, he escaped his abusive childhood, graduated from college, and built a successful lobbying firm in Washington, DC. Today, he is a mentor, speaker, and advocate for women and children. He donates a percentage of his royalties from The Pale-Faced Lie to Barrett House, a homeless shelter for women in Albuquerque.

First I had to unlearn many terrible habits my father drummed into me. For instance, revenge isn't justice. Sometimes, you need to walk away from a hot head, meaning you aren't one yourself. I also observed my angels listed in the book and found that every one of them possessed empathy, kindness, sympathy and interest in other people. Slowly I learned to emulate the people I admired, but it was a long, slow process fraught with many mistakes. Over time, I learned to treat people the way I wanted to be treated. And my Navajo friends were the best examples of people who would be justified carrying a big grudge, but they never did. Very powerful example.

May I ask a brief favor from you? Would you mind posting a brief review on Goodreads and Amazon please? Thank you. I really appreciate your question. As for writing well, read everything and have an incredible editor as I did with Sandra Jonas. Best to you.(less)

Would you mind posting a brief review on Goodreads and Amazon. I went through lots of doubt and trepidation while writing the book. Notes like yours validate it. I really appreciate it. David(less)

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Jane Little Botkin has written a profound and deeply personal book about the extraordinary class struggle for women's rights in the wake of the Ludlow coal-mining massacre, a dark stain on the American conscience.
