“I wrote this novel for several reasons. First, it was to share with Navajo youth the truth about their history as told by their Navajo elders; second, it was to inform Navajo youth about
the strength of their ancestors and their Navajo people; third, it was to present the painful history of the Navajo people from an unusual viewpoint— that of a love story; fourth, it was to inform Navajo youth about the strength of love in terms of survival
of an individual, a family, and of a people; and finally, it was
to instill within Navajo youth and Navajos of all ages pride for their people, knowing they come from strong stock.”
