Description: GARDENS IN THE DUNES: A Novel (Hardcover: 479 pages; approx. 9½" x 6½")

From the jacket: "With the sure hand and unerring eye of a mature artist, Silko takes the reader on a Grand Tour of England and Europe in the era of Henry James (in a novel peopled with characters whose sensibility and language are brilliantly Jamesian), as seen through the eyes of a young Native American girl, Indigo, who is in flight from the destruction at the hands of the whites of her own tribal world. Indigo's fascination with the world of luxury and privilege never eclipses her instinctive faith in the traditions and the culture of her own people, or her desire to return home to what remains of her tribe and her family.

Spanning the jungles of Brazil, the gardens and stately homes of England and Europe, the desert of the American Southwest, and the great estates of the American rich at the height of the Gilded Age, Gardens in the Dunes is an ambitious, fully realized novel about the fatal collision between two cultures, that of the colonizers and that of the indigenous peoples they have conquered, and about the ideas, beliefs, and structures of time, mind, and habit that bind and sunder them."

Author: Leslie Marmon Silko

Condition: Very good, I'd say. The dust jacket is lightly scuffed, and a little wrinkled along the top edge. A previous owner's name appears to have been blacked out with a felt-tip marker on the first page, just inside the front cover, and one page has a vertical crease. Other than that, the remainder of the book is in excellent condition.

Published: Simon & Schuster; 1999
