Recognized historian of the Navajo Code Talkers of World War II, Zonnie Gorman is an expert in her field and a dedicated teacher. She is the daughter of the late Dr. Carl Gorman: Artist, teacher and one of the original “first twenty-nine” Navajo Code Talkers who devised the initial Navajo code. With a love of history, her journey has led her through 15 years of in-depth research and interviews. Gorman shares a touching story of young teenage boys seeking adventure and escape. The Code Talker story is the ultimate paradox – a shining achievement for Native America.
