Product Description

The Long Walk of the Navajos continues in Sweet Salt, a novel of beauty and endurance by Robert Mayer.

Monument Valley is home to Nina Yazzie, a Navajo girl becoming a Navajo woman. In throbbing rhythms live with her through a hectic ride to a hospital at Tuba City. Bear the pain of the child within her, struggling to be born prematurely; witness her father, Not-So-Fast, who carries within him the curse of a wolf girl; her grandfather, One-Blue-Eye, who speaks in riddles of the wisdom of the Navajo Nation; and Michael, an anglo doctor, who treats her after a suicide attempt and becomes her friend, her confidant.

With her sheep as companions, walk with the child Nina through Monument Valley. With the older Nina, walk through Santa Fe, a city that seduces her to art and to love.
