Description"Leslie Marmon Silko writes in the language of the spirit . . . sentence by sentence, the reader is given an enormous amount of useful information about how to get the most out of life, beginning in the present moment." --The Los Angeles Times Profound reflections on family and the natural world-from the legendary Native American author
With the publication of Ceremony in 1978, Leslie Marmon Silko established herself as a storyteller of unique power and brilliance. In The Tuquoise Ledge, her first work of nonfiction, Silko combines memoir with family history and observations on the creatures and desert landscapes that command her attention and inform her vision of the world. Ambitious in scope and full of wonderfully plainspoken and evocative lyricism, The Turquoise Ledge is both an exploration of Silko's experience and a moving and deeply personal contemplation of the enormous spiritual power of the natural world.
