In Under a Desert Sky, set in Ghost Ranch, New Mexico, Mills’ has captured the character and thought of the Dine, the Navajo people. This was my first look at Mills’ books, but after reading Under a Desert Sky, I went in search of other books by this author. I haven’t been disappointed. I recommend it.
