Trail of Lightning review

A review of TRAIL OF LIGHTNING from Diné scholar Charlie Scott that places it in a storytelling tradition:

“As a Diné reader, for me this book represents something powerful and something different. There are specific cultural imageries deployed in this novel which only those who are familiar with Diné cosmology will understand and can relate to. But in all of my twenty-plus years of existence, I have never read a book like Trail of Lightning—and that is what makes this book worthy of a reading. It invites and encourages both Diné and non-Diné readers to learn more about the life of Maggie, her relationships with Kai and Grandpa Tah, and her development as a protagonist.”
