Beginning with the time and place this Native American author was born (1940), this story chronicles his journey that begins in his village of Guishsche on the Pueblo of Laguna Indian Reservation in New Mexico. He spent his early childhood herding sheep for his father. Like most Indian children of his generation, he spent six years in an Indian boarding school away from his reservation. From there he attends college and graduate school and becomes a professional social worker. The author uses his journey to tell about the tremendous impact his family and the people of his village had on him. He also tells of how he always seems to end up in the right place at the right time. He grows up during the time when the people were still living their traditional way of life. He meets other people who are instrumental in leading him to opportunities he would have never experienced. He tells of the excitement, challenges, and achievements he experienced as a result of the legislative and judicial enactments of the 1960's and 70's that impacted the self-determination efforts of Native Americans.
