Description:

"To choose Navajo Indians as your material, to exclude the white man, save as the merest accidental accessory, to depend wholly on a young Navajo lover and his mate - and to bring it off - is a most uncommon feat.a daring experiment, triumphantly successful."--Owen Wister, author of The Virginian.

About this title:

Synopsis: Capturing the essence of the Southwest in 1915, Oliver La Farge's Pulitzer Prize-winning first novel is an enduring American classic. At a ceremonial dance, the young, earnest silversmith Laughing Boy falls in love with Slim Girl, a beautiful but elusive "American"-educated Navajo. As they experience all of the joys and uncertainties of first love, the couple must face a changing way of life and its tragic consequences.

About the Author: OLIVER LA FARGE (1901–1963) first traveled to Navajo territory on a Harvard archaeological dig. Laughing Boy was his first novel.
