"Demanding but confident and beautifully written" (Boston Globe), this is the story of a young Native American returning to his reservation after surviving the horrors of captivity as a prisoner of the Japanese during World War II. Drawn to his Indian past and its traditions, his search for comfort and resolution becomes a ritual--a curative ceremony that defeats his despair.
From the Publisher:
One Navajo family, on a New Mexico reservation, struggles to survive in a world no longer theirs in the years just before and after World War II
Author Bio
Leslie Marmon Silko
Silko is part Pueblo, Laguna, Mexican, and white. She grew up on the Laguna Pueblo reservation near Albuquerque and attended the University of New Mexico. Silko published her first book of poems, "Laguna Women Poems" in 1974, and her first novel, "Ceremony", in 1977. Many of her works, both prose and poetry, deal with the preservation of the oral traditions and ceremonies of the Laguna Pueblo Indians

Praise

"Leslie Silko's 'Ceremony' is an extraordinary novel....Her talent is real and remarkable." - N. Scott Momaday

New York Times Book Review
"Without question Leslie Silko is the most accomplished Native American writer of her generation. A splendid achievement."

Boston Globe
"The novel is very deliberately a ceremony in itself--demanding but confident and beautifully written."
