Almanac of the Dead by Leslie Marmon Silko

915lusvul9lSynopsis (Goodreads): At the heart of Almanac of the Dead is Seese, a haunted, enigmatic survivor of the fast-money, high-risk world of drug dealing–a world in which the needs of modern America exist in a dangerous balance with Native American traditions. In Tucson she encounters Lecha, a well-known psychic hiding from the consequences of her celebrity, whose larger duty is to transcribe the ancient, painfully preserved notebooks that contain the history of her people–the Almanac of the Dead.

A many-layered narrative unfolds to tell the tragic story of the clash of civilizations.
