Not sorry to have read it

It's not at all a good book in any way (although New Mexico magazine likes it). I'm glad to have read In the Sun's House: My Year Teaching on the Navajo Reservation (by Kurt Caswell), and now it can be passed along to the next reader. There's a list of courses taught at Tech by the author. Our residence among the Tl'ochini was some four decades ago; his appears to have been in 1994 or so (he mentions his brand-new 1994 truck), at Borrego Pass school in McKinley County, close to Crownpoint. The book is more about the author than it is about where he was residing, and not very perceptively, at the time recounted
