      • content: Telling his story to his grandchildren, Kii Yazhi, renamed Ned at the Navajo mission school, relives his experiences as a secret code specialist during WWII Pacific battles. With the inclusion of Navajo language excerpts, Derrick Henry's narration of this critical role lends an authentic tone. The plot serves as a framework to describe the culture and traits of the Navajo people, as well as the horrific memories of war that haunt the former soldiers. The courage, accuracy, and continual communication of these skilled Marines made a significant contribution to the war effort. Henry's matter-of-fact narrative cadence combined with the author's poetic language gives this powerful story credence and bears witness to the talent and dedication of the Navajo Code Talkers.
