Navajo Spaceships Star Mountain and Rez Memories Stories of the Native born and life on Indian Land by Johnny Rustywire (2006) "Rustywire's stories are The Real Thing, the view from inside as it were. Review: This book is "chock full of stories, vignettes and poems of a people on the cusp between tradition and the belegana (white) world. They are told in a simple, conversational voice, as if a tale told by a campfire or on a long drive through the starkly beautiful Navajo reservation. And that voice breathes the rhythm and cadence of Navajo speech, and is full of the specifics of region and place, and a good bit of humor. I can't resist an excerpt from a poem I opened to randomly, "He works silver with his hands": "... buffing by hand, cotton cloth rubbing and burnishing over and over it is finished where will it go time to sell it gas and to pay for the place..." 452 pp.
