“Man has always felt most vulnerable in that lonely netherworld between darkness and dawn. Often it is then death takes the sick and weak…they give up finally, unable to bear the weight of another day. A person may – not knowing why – suddenly awaken if only for an instant to assure himself all is well. Charlie woke that morning in the darkness with just such a feeling. It was now late afternoon and hunger was finally getting the best of him. In old Navajo, when one was hungry, he said, ‘hunger is hurting me.’ Hunger was hurting Charlie now.”
Follow Charlie Yazzi and Thomas Begay as they again encounter danger and intrigue on the Nation’s largest Indian reservation. Boy Made of Dawn, the stand-alone sequel to the highly acclaimed Navajo Autumn is the second book in the ongoing Navajo Nation Mystery Series.
