Darrell Dennis narrates this dive into "rez ball," basketball set in the Arizona desert. His tone is comforting as he describes the challenges facing many of the young Navajo players on the Chinle High School team. He alters his voice a bit when a player or character is speaking--providing differentiation, rather than imitation. If a coach is giving a pep talk, he ramps up his energy. But mostly he stays calm and steady throughout this portrait of a culture, set against the backdrop of a basketball season. As the team fights to win the coveted state title, listeners will gain knowledge of a people and their tribulations. M.B. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2020]
