Description

In its extraordinary range of character and culture, Almanac of the Dead is fiction on the grand scale. The acclaimed author of Ceremony, Leslie Marmon Silko has undertaken a weaving of ideas and lives, fate and history, passion and conquest in an attempt to re-create the moral history of the Americas, told from the point of view of the conquered, not the conquerors. Civilizations clash when Seese, a survivor of the fast-money, high-risk world of drug dealing, travels to the Southwest in search of her missing child and meets Lecha, a celebrity psychic who is working to transcribe the notebooks that contain the history of her Native American people.
