A Navajo Doll linked to the Native American History


New York, NY – WEBWIRE

Discover the book “Double Doll,” that carries a story of life, culture, and beliefs. The book was displayed at Hyatt Regency, Rochester on November 13, 2016.

Books can influence a person in so many ways, that we are able to take a peek at someone else’s life, culture, place, and thinking. Sharleen Daugherty’s latest book carries the journey that she had gone through. One of her fascinating stories is about The Double Doll that was given to her when she was working with the Navajos. The Najavos, known as Native American people of the Southwestern United States, are the second largest federally recognized tribe in the United States with more than 300,000 members.

The book, “Double Doll: Turning Myself Upside Down” comes with a deep portrayal of Sharleen’s life. She was only eight-years-old when she received the rag doll with a Navajo face and body on one end and Anglo body on the other. The doll became a symbol of her journey into the world of the Navajo and the manifestation of a childhood prayer. The story is sure to be symbolic as A Navajo Doll is now a part of the American history.

With Sharleen Daugherty’s brilliance in writing, she aims to attract reader’s interest as she shares her story. Her book continues to captivate it’s audience, just like those who attended the New York State Reading Association, which took place last 13th-14th of November, 2016 at the Hyatt Regency, Rochester. Don’t miss the unveiling story of Sharleen’s first book, “Memoir Trilogy.” Grab a copy and have a good read.
