Set in the insular world of the Laguna Pueblo reservation and resonating far beyond, Leslie Marmon Silko's novel tells the story of Tayo, an army veteran of mixed ancestry who returns to the reservation scarred by his experience as a prisoner of the Japenese. Only by immersing himself in the Native American past and its traditions can he begin to regain the peace that was taken from him. Masterfully written, filled with the somber majesty of of Pueblo myth, Ceremony is a work of enduring power.
This 30th anniversary paperback edition contains a new preface by the author, and an introduction by Larry McMurtry.
