Mary Yazzie owns Mary's Gifts & Cultural Emporium. She makes jewelry to sell in her store.
Mary tries several times to buy a small piece of Shadow Ranch property from the Rawleys because it has a good collection of petrified wood, but they refuse to sell to her. Even so, she frequently -and secretly- visits the Ranch to see Tex Britten, her boyfriend. He is happy to give her whatever pieces of petrified wood he finds, but they agree to keep their relationship secret because they believe the Rawleys don't like her.
