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.

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 change.

I am still reading this book. I love the narration style of the interview. I have had so many questions about Native American life and this woman, Rose Mitchell, gives an honest account of how life was as she was growing up. I look forward to the rest of the story. It reminds me to think of the Native American people and to give back to them in whatever way I can to help make up for any hurts of the past...

The book is in very POOR condition, but was listed as "good" condition when I bought it. It is NOT in good condition! I have never purchased a book in such terrible shape! The cover is tattered, dirty, has black marker and black smudges on it and has packing tape all over it keeping the cover from coming off and it has writing and bright pink highlighter throughout. It was a used textbook with the used sticker still on the book. I have bought many used textbooks, but none in this POOR condition. I would stay away from this seller!

When I contacted the seller they asked me to take pictures of the book so they could see all the damage it had. Obviously they knew the condition it was in when they mailed it to me, why they needed pictures, I don't know, except they didn't believe me. Then after I went to the trouble of taking 10 photos of every taped tare, marker, bent cover, etc..., then I downloading them, and sent them. Then I get a response that asked me, "What are these pictures for?" So I had to cut and paste all the previous four emails to a new email and send it again. Then in the final response from this seller, they tell me I only paid $4.95 for the book, plus shipping and they won't replace the book nor refund my money unless I want to send it back, but I will have to pay shipping which was as much as the book because it's a big heavy book. So, BEWARE if this seller lists a book in "good condition," chances are it will be in POOR condition and you will be stuck with a crappy book.

I fully understand the incredible amount of research and work put into the story of Rose Mitchell. I also apprreciate writing the book as the story was told by her. I've not really had time to read too far into the book yet so can't say yet how I would rate it in the end.
