Book Description

Review ''Gordon Johnson's world--the Pala Indian Reservation and environs--is so vivid and haunting and funny, a combination few writers can pull off, and yet Fast Cars and Frybread does so with panache, flourish, and love.'' --Susan Straight, author of A Million Nightingales ''These stories skillfully capture a world gone by and memories of life on and around a California Indian reservation, and touchingly illuminate the heart of a man remembering that world. What a pleasure to read, and how long the pleasure resonates.'' --Greg Sarris, author of Watermelon Nights and Tribal Chairman of the Federated Indians of the Graton Rancheria Read more About the Author Gordon Johnson is a Cahuilla/Cupeno from the Pala Indian Reservation in San Diego County, California.
