“Once in a great while, a miracle of a book comes along, a gift that both touches the heart and engages the mind. Reservation Restless is such a book.”—Anne Hillerman, New York Times best-selling author of Rock with Wings and The Tale Teller
“These tales capture the humor and themes of traditional Diné literature. . . . The collection resonates with deep cultural authenticity.”—Enrique Lamadrid, author of Juan the Bear and the Water of Life: La Acequia de Juan del Oso
With tales of gangs and skinwalkers, an Indian Boy Scout troop, a fanatical Sunday school teacher, and the author’s own experience of sincere friendships that lead to hózhó (beautiful harmony), Kristofic’s memoir is an honest portrait of growing up on—and growing to love—the Reservation.
