Profound reflections on family and the natural world-from the legendary Native American author.

With the publication of Ceremony in 1978, Leslie Marmon Silko established herself as a storyteller of unique power and brilliance. Now, in her first work of nonfiction, Silko combines memoir with family history and observations on the creatures and desert landscapes that command her attention and inform her vision of the world. Ambitious in scope and full of wonderfully plainspoken and evocative lyricism, The Turquoise Ledge is both an exploration of Silko's experience and a moving and deeply personal contemplation of the enormous spiritual power of the natural world.

Leslie Marmon Silko is the author of the novels Ceremony, Almanac of the Dead, and Gardens of the Dunes, as well as many short stories, poems, and essays. She lives in Tucson, Arizona.
