Tall Woman: The Life Story of Rose Mitchell, a Navajo Woman c.
Translated from her own words, this story of a
Navajo woman who lived for more than 102 years is a vivid account of traditional
lifeways in a harsh and challenging environment. Tall Woman was raised in a
family of foragers and herders: "we never lived in one spot for any length of
time; we just roamed about from place to place, and from time to time."
Forbidden to go to school, she learned traditional skills and knowledge from her
elders, growing up to be a well-known weaver and an expert on the uses of
traditional plants as food and medicine. She was also in demand as a midwife.
Despite her reputation and that of her husband, Frank Mitchell, a well-known
political leader, judge, and Blessingway singer, Tall Woman lived the unassuming
life of a traditional Navajo woman, focusing on the hogan, her twelve children,
the sheep and goats, and the farm.
Edited and annotated by a distinguished
anthropologist who has worked with the Mitchell family since 1963, this book was
written to fulfill Tall Woman's desire to share her story not just with her
descendants but with others. In addition to her own life history, Tall Woman
tells ancestral stories and offers wise advice to future generations. Both
Navajo and non-Navajo readers will be fascinated by the courage and ingenuity
evoked in her account of the People's survival during a period of immeasurable

just finished re-reading this play. if you know
the story, you might like the photo. if not, i hope you like it anyway! still
sick, but i'm doing a little better today. i don't have much energy (physical or
mental) right now, so i apologize for falling so far behind on streams again.
i'm fav-ing shots i really like, but not remarking, which i know can be
annoying. right now, the acts of showering and feeding myself feel like
herculean tasks, so my comments at this point would be nothing more than grunts
and groans anyway. hope you are all having nice weekends. song of the day:

Accountant Heather Montgomery is a planner. So
never in her wildest dreams did she think she'd run into sexy charmer Tony
McCaffrey in Vegas, play lady luck, and celebrate his jackpot with a
champagne-soaked night. And she certainly never expected to wake up the next
morning married! How could this good girl pick a man whose fridge is empty and
whose apartment is a disaster zone, yet still drives her so crazy with lust she
can't see straight?
Quickly hitched and happily ditched, Tony can't wait
to get back to his playboy ways. But when Heather's family is thrilled that
their no-nonsense daughter is finally in love, he proposes a plan: stay married
for a month to repay his good luck charm, even though she sterilizes his
toothbrush and forbids anything between the sheets. But Heather is more than he
bargained for--a sharp-witted, passionate woman who just might turn his near
miss into wedded bliss!
