Although it becomes important to Leaphorn to protect George and Susanne, he is first a detective. As a detective, he must rule them out not with his heart but with logic, which he is able to do. Explain how Leaphorn uses logic in Chapter 16 to add or rule out suspects or reasons for the deaths.
Essay Topic 2
Author Hillerman makes several references to the Navajo way of life being a lonely life. Leaphorn seems comfortable in his aloneness, while the loneliness leaves George Bowlegs searching for answers. In comparison, the non-Navajo Susanne is also alone, but this has been forced on her by the abuse against her. Discuss these three characters and how they cope with being alone. Does being alone the same as loneliness? For everyone or just some?
Essay Topic 3
In Chapter 13, Zuni spirituality is explored more fully as Father Ingles explains it to Leaphorn. Apparently, comparing the different religions was a discussion that Father Ingles shared with George as well. Compare and contrast the Zuni religion with Catholicism.
