More charming than I expected, although it really drags in some parts, and my real draw for this (Leaphorn) is barely in it. I'm going to give the second one a shot but the ice is thin. ( )

Absorbing tale of an inexplicable killing interwoven with the hunt for a "Wolf-Witch" on the reservation. Good character development, interesting descriptions of native beliefs, and minimal passages of violence. ( )

Good read, seems respectful of Native culture. ( )

Bergen McKee is an anthropologist studying the Navajo culture, especially the role that witches play in tribal beliefs. The college professor comes to the reservation in New Mexico to spend the summer in the desert, researching rumors of Wolf-Witches active in the area. Lt Joe Leaphorn with the tribal police has been friends with McKee since their college days, and is glad to see his old friend. But, neither man expects that the witch rumors will soon blossom into a string of murders. The men work together to discover who the Wolf-Witch is, gathering information on sightings of the witch and possible suspects. The investigation culminates in an exciting show-down in the desert, where McKee's life is on the line.

The Blessing Way was Tony Hillerman's first novel, published in 1970. I first read this book when I was in high school. I became an immediate fan of Hillerman's novels. The Blessing Way is the first book in the Joe Leaphorn Mysteries series, although in this first book Bergen McKee is more the main character than Leaphorn. I love the way the story is a blend of Navajo culture and murder mystery.

I decided this year to re-visit Hillerman's novels. I'm glad I did. His portrayal of the Navajo way of life was just as vivid for me now as it was for me in the 80's when I read this book for the first time. Hillerman wrote 22 books. 18 of them are Joe Leaphorn/Jim Chee Navajo police mystery novels.
Hillerman died in 2008, but his daughter Anne continues the series. Anne Hillerman has written two novels in the series so far, Spider Woman's Daughter and Rock With Wings.

The Blessing Way starts out a little slow, but by mid-book the action picks up speed and heads towards a thrilling end. The book includes a lot of details about Navajo culture, beliefs and ceremonies. It's easy to tell that Hillerman loved New Mexico!

I'm going to re-read the entire series! :) ( )

Chalk one up for marketing and design. Apparently Harper has been doing these Olive Editions for several years now but I'm only noticing them now for the first time. And they look so nice I just had to buy all of the current batch. I've been wanting to read more mysteries anyway. This one is a Navajo murder mystery in which the culprit appears to be a figure from folklore. There is more adventure and less detective work than I expected, but it worked for me. I may read another of this author some time. ( )
