"(The Ancestor) story is rich in detail with skillful description of landscape and strong character development. Effectively sets up conflict between science and traditional belief systems." --Judge's comments in Southwestern Writers contest.
From the Author
The American Southwest is a land of mysterious allure with its scenic vistas of forests, deserts, and mountains, and its tri-cultural makeup of Hispanics, American Indians, and the mix of Caucasians, African-Americans, and Asians. I blend all of them together in my short stories and my historical novel.
Author Tony Hillerman defined the Southwest better than anyone else in his mystery novels featuring Navajo policemen Joe Leaphorn and Jim Chee. I focus my writing on different "dream people," as the famous author Henry James described his books' characters. Since moving to New Mexico, I've become entranced by the Pueblo Indians, who have persevered to hang on to their villages, languages, celebrations, and native religion despite five centuries under other dominant peoples. Many visitors have never heard of the Puebloans until they come to New Mexico, but then they fall in love with Puebloan architecture, art, and culture.
