This Zuni tale is an enchanting ancient story about the survival of a people witnessing the changing of their land into the desert we know today. Zuni words are introduced slowly, transcribed by Hillerman from a Zuni myth. A major shortcoming of the presentation is the choice of reader; this celebrity presentation does not work. Debra Winger, the very talented actress, is not Native American; why was she picked to read this? Her generally deep monotone and hesitant treatment are wrong here. A young Zuni boy is the myth's hero; was not one Zuni or Native male reader available for this tape? L.C. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB 93]
