Navajo writer Brian Young’s debut novel “Healer of the Water Monster,” features the story of Nathan who makes a trip to his grandmother’s place on the Navajo Nation. He encounters a holy being who prompts him to become a helper. It’s his courage that lands him the role of being the big thinker. As Young says, his kindness makes him the true hero of the story inspired by a dream the author had when he was seven. We’ll hear more about the book on our July Book of the Month when we visit with Brian Young.
