A Page Turner

This is book two in the Navajo Nation series. Charlie Yazzie is now working for the Navajo Legal Service as an attorney. He is thinking about asking his girl friend, Sue Hanagari, to marry him.

A Ute man tells Charlie about seeing a young boy about six or so alone out in the wilderness, but the boy would hide from him. Charlie goes out to find the boy and discovers he is his friend Thomas Begay’s son. The story gets more involved as Charlie and Thomas discover someone wants to stop them and others from testifying at the upcoming Patsy Greyhorse Trial.

The book is well written and is very fast moving. As in book one Chappell provides information about the Navajo and Ute culture and history. The characters are interesting and Chappell continues to develop them in this book. The author’s description of the country makes the reader feel as if they are there. Chappell is a great storyteller. The narrator, Kaipo Schwab, does an excellent job narrating the book; his pronunciation of the Navajo words and rhythm of speech is great. The narrator helps to make the story fun to listen too.

Enjoying this series thoroughly

We lived in this country, so the names of places are familiar as is the landscape. The narrator is excellent. The stories are solid. The characters are likable, and personalities as well as relationships grow.

Inconsistency in recording

Good story but the quality of recording was less than positive. Injections of correction by different voice or at different. recording levels was very amateurish

Good listen - too expensive.

Overall, I liked the book, and the series. They're easy to get through, and made interesting with the insights into modern life on a reservation. I don't like the fact that each book is as expensive as a full length novel, but is really just a short story.
