Nasdijj

Host Jacki Lyden talks to writer Nasdijj about his new memoir, The Blood Runs Like a River Through My Dreams. Nasdijj, born on a Navajo Reservation in 1950, writes essays in this book that tell of his life growing up as the child of migrant workers, one white and one Navajo. The book also explores his bouts with homelessness, the people he met along the way, and the loss of his adopted son, who suffered from fetal alcohol syndrome.
