Book Review: Send a Runner: A Navajo Honors the Long Walk

9780826362339_0.jpg

Over 150 years ago, the United States government forced the Navajo people to undergo a series of  marches from what is now Arizona to eastern New Mexico.  "Send a Runner: A Navajo Honors the Long Walk," by Edison Eskeets, tells the story of the ceremonial run organized by the author and his family to honor their ancestors, the survivors of that ordeal.  West Lafayette Public Library Director Nick Schenkel has the review.
