Illustrations by Clifford Brycelea. A first edition of an early work by Terry Tempest Williams. Signed by Williams on the title page. From the dust jacket- "Legend and ritual are the stories by which the Navajo have lived, by which they have understood their place in the universe. Pieces of White Shell illumines these stories and, using them as a point of departure, shows us how we can find our own- our history, our traditions, our sense of how to live well. It is in this way that we may retain our integrity in a world that is ever-changing."
