NEW MEXICAN AUTHOR PRESENTS THIRD BOOK ON NATIVE AMERICANS 3:00 PM SUNDAY, MAY 19, AT PAGE ONE

New Mexico author Jim Kristofic, who grew up on the Navajo Reservation, will be at Page One Books 3:00 pm Sunday, May 19, to talk about and sign his new non-fiction effort, "Medicine Women: The Story of the First Native American Nursing School."

The book is described as such: "After the Indian wars, many Americans still believed that the only good Indian was a dead Indian. But at Ganado Mission in the Navajo country of northern Arizona, a group of missionaries and doctors--who cared less about saving souls and more about saving lives--chose a different way and persuaded the local parents and medicine men to allow them to educate their daughters as nurses. The young women struggled to step into the world of modern medicine, but they knew they might become nurses who could build a bridge between the old ways and the new. In this detailed history, Jim Kristofic traces the story of Ganado Mission on the Navajo Indian Reservation. Kristofic's personal connection with the community creates a nuanced historical understanding that blends engaging narrative with careful scholarship to share the stories of the people and their commitment to this place."

Kristofic grew up on the Navajo Reservation in northeastern Arizona. His award-winning books "The Hero Twins: A Navajo-English Story of the Monster Slayers" and "Navajos Wear Nikes: A Reservation Life," are both published by UNM Press. He lives in Taos, NM.

Page One Books is located at 5850 Eubank Blvd NE, Suite B-41, in Albuquerque's Mountain Run Shopping Center (southeast corner of Eubank and Juan Tabo). The Kristofic event is free and open to the public. For more information, please call 294-2026 or visit www.page1book.com.
