An Amazing Cross-Cultural Story

Title: Running From Coyote: A White Family among the Navajo
Author: Danalee Buhler
Publisher: iUniverse, August 2007

Baptismal Tank"

Pre-print quotation from Tony Hillerman

"Running From Coyote is a remarkable book, a brilliant example of how a
writer can use memories of her own childhood to introduce the world to
another culture. Not only does Ms. Buhler provide a clear view of the
Navajo people, my own favorite Native American culture, she also tells
a wonderful story of a white girl growing up between the Sacred
Mountains. If I were still teaching my University of New Mexico
classes, I would have it on my required reading list."

The book is available from iUniverse, Amazon, Powells, Barnes and
Nobel, and other internet book stores.

Wow! How good is that, to have a testimonial from Tony Hillerman, one of our most masterful writers today?

Congratulations on a powerful push for your newest creation.
