With no experience in backpacking or roughing it, Jamie finds himself in unknown territory during the harsh Arizona winter. He leaves the tourist trail to spend time with the Navajo Indians on the largest reservation in America. Staying with Mayor Elect Roy Kady, who also happens to be a sheep farmer, Jamie witnesses Navajo traditions up close—from butchery, to overnighting in a hogan and cooking with elders. He also receives a crash course in Navajo spirituality. It doesn’t take long before Jamie realizes that, despite being the original American people, Native American’s are in danger of losing their food culture completely.
