Summary
To Walk in Beauty takes readers on the journey of the Begay family of Jeddito Wash, Arizona, on the Navajo Reservation. This is an intimate portrait of one family's decision to uphold the mission to preserve for the next generation what it means to be Navajo. The book exposes in intensely personal terms the sense of cultural dissolution long associated with the tragedy of Navajo history, and it examines the spiritual healing that can take place when cultural identity is reclaimed. The family's path of healing revealed itself following a fated encounter between Goldtooth, the Begay-family patriarch, and Dr. Lyle McNeal, sheep researcher and educator from Utah State University, whose Navajo Sheep Project helped restore a way of life to traditional Navajo people. To Walk in Beauty presents readers with an intimate window on a culture not often seen by outsiders. It documents the Begay family's challenges in returning to Jeddito Wash and resuming the traditional sacred practice of sheep raising, and those associated with loss and recovery. As well, it is a story about promise, portrayed in the Blessingway ceremony that sets an infant on a good, beautiful path for the future -- Book jacket
