Talking to the Ground: One Family’s Journey on Horseback Across the Sacred Land of the Navajo
~ by Douglas Preston
In 1992 — author Douglas Preston and his wife and daughter rode horseback — across 400 miles of desert in Utah, Arizona, and New Mexico.
They were retracing the route of a Navajo deity, the Slayer of Alien Gods — on his quest to restore beauty and balance to the Earth. More than a travelogue,
Preston’s account of their “one tough journey, luminously remembered” (Kirkus Reviews) is a tale of two cultures meeting in a sacred land — and is “like traveling across unknown territory with Lewis and Clark to the Pacific” (Dee Brown, author of Bury My Heart At Wounded Knee).
The Zoom meeting opens by 9:20am, book discussion starts at 9:30am
