Book Launch - The Story Behind the Story

In The Story Behind the Story, author Valerie Albrecht writes the life, work and worldview of Elroy Begay, a Navajo Medicine Man. This new biography is based on four years of research and conversation, including time spent within Begay's family and community on Arizona's Chinle Reservation, attending and assisting at his ceremonies. 

In telling the story of Begay's life, Albrecht investigates the Navajo Creation story and time honoured traditional medicine and ceremonial practices. She also shares her reflections on what proved to be an paradigm shifting experience for both herself and Elroy. 

Join us as we launch this extraordinary new book from publisher Austin Macaulay.
