Abenaki Joseph Bruchac and Navajo Shonto Begay combine their talents to tell the tragic story of how, in the 1860s, U.S. soldiers forced thousands of Navajos to march to a desolate reservation 400 miles from their homeland in an effort to " civilize" them. Hundreds died along the way; those who survived found unspeakable living conditions at their destination. When word of the Indians' s plight finally gained public attention, President Andrew Johnson sent a Peace Commission to investigate. The resulting treaty allowed the Navajos to return to their homeland, and "ho' zho--harmony--was restored. The Navajos prospered and have lived in peace with the U.S. government ever since while preserving their own proud culture.
