Publisher's Summary

Leslie Marmon Silko established herself as “the finest prose writer of her generation” (Larry McMurtry) with her debut novel Ceremony, one of the most acclaimed works of the 20th century. Of mixed Laguna Pueblo, Cherokee, Mexican, and white heritage, Silko brings a unique perspective to her powerful works. In this deeply personal and spiritual book, she combines memoirs, traditional storytelling, and ruminations on the natural world.

Critic Reviews

“…this richly veined, dramatic, and mysterious self-portrait [is] a provocative and numinous memoir…” ( Booklist)

The narrative gets a bit strange at times, but

it's a beautifully personal story of the trials and tribulations of dealing with human wretchedness in many different forms.

Crazy lady talks about aliens, snakes and rocks

This was awful. Whoever told this lady she could write did it out of pity. Clearly a re-typing of a dreadfully boring journal from a lady with several screws lose.
I got the book because it was listed as a good book about living alone. There’s no introspection here. Just a lady talking about rocks, aliens, snakes. How did this even get published?
You’ve been warned. Yes, I listened to it in its entirety. A fool for buying it.
