9780875790565: Silent Courage: An Indian Story : The Autobiography of George P. Lee, a Navajo.

George P Lee was taught by his father in all ways of the Navajo. He grew up on the reservation just like other Navajo boys. He learned to hunt prairie dogs for food, to herd sheep, to work in the bean fields of Colorado to help support his family, and to worship the Navajo religion - a religion that pervaded every aspect of life. But George P. Lee was different from other boys, too. His sacred name was Boy Who Is Well Behaved and Good, and he tried to live up to that name by honoring his parents and working hard. He was receptive to things of the Spirit, and through the example and help of faithful Latter-day Saints, he was baptized into The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. This young Navajo became one of the first students on the Church's Indian Student Placement program, and he rapidly became a leader at school. Seeing the value of a good education and wanting to help his people, he attended Brigham Young University and eventually earned a doctorate in education. He served as the president of a college in Arizona and as a mission president. Finally, he was called as a General Authority of the Church. Silent Courage is the fascinating autobiography of this great man. The book will be of great value to the Indians, showing them that they can overcome their problems and succeed, both on and off the reservation. And it will help all Church members better understand the problems, needs, and destiny of the Lamanite people.
