Synopsis: On the dust jacket of the first edition of Windsinger, published in 1930 by Minton, Balch & Company of New York, Frances Gillmor is quoted as saying: "I have spent considerable time on the Navajo reservation, far from railways and travelled roads. There I have been able to see much of the life of the Navajo hogans. I have travelled horseback at the foot of Black Mesa, where in my story Windsinger lives, I have seen sand painting in the making, a very rare privilege for a white person, and something which women, either white or Navajo, are seldom allowed to do. I have been to chants and Entahs where I have been the only white person present, and where in the strange dramatic serenity of the firelit ceremonies of song, I could easily forget that I myself was not a Navajo."

"About this title" may belong to another edition of this title.
