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."

Warmly inscribed by Williams to the bookman and publisher Ernie Bulow on the front free endpaper: "May 20, 1989 / For Ernie- / In the name of / shared appreciation towards / these lands, these / sacred lands- May / they continue to heal us. / We are told a / story and then we / tell our own. / Fondly, / Terry Tempest Williams." Additionally signed by the author on the half title page.
