AllMusic Review by

Davis Mitchell is a popular upholder of traditional Navajo (or Dine) culture, and his haunting vocals and hand drum accompaniment have won over not only the people of his nation, but the large non-Native American audiences who flock to his shows and buy his albums. This 2007 Grammy-nominated release includes such laments as "The Good Old Days," the title track, and "Grandma's Memorial Song," but several upbeat numbers round out the emotional spectrum and provide good cheer.
