In this autobiographical work, the late Pueblo Indian historian Joe S. Sando reflects upon his life and his accomplishments over decades of monumental changes for the Pueblo people. The book begins with his growing up in Jemez Pueblo and living a very different lifestyle from what exists today. His years in the Navy during World War II provided him with lifelong bonds of friendship and memories both exciting and terrifying. After the war, he returned to college on the G.I. Bill. He then began a long career in education and the study of Pueblo Indian history, and today is considered the pre-eminent historian in this field in the nation.

Even while following a very demanding career path, Sando found time for family life with his wife Louisa and three children—as well as his large extended family at Jemez Pueblo. He concludes this book in honoring his family by presenting their complete genealogy. Using colorful anecdotes throughout the book, Sando presents his story with clarity, insight, honesty and humor.
