This review is from: Navajoland: A Native Son Shares His Legacy (Arizona Highways Special Scenic Collection) (Arizona Highways Special Scenic Collections) (Paperback)
I saw this book mentioned on NBC Nightly News and decided to get a copy as a gift for my brother, just about all I can find to complain about is the long shipping time and the fact that it only comes as a paperback, not hardback.

Both in Mr. Hillerman's forward and in the photographer's own text you get some Navajo history and philosophy about how/why things happened and their beliefs. Apparently the ancestral Navajos considered four mountains to be the boundaries of their territory, much of that land is still inside present day reservation borders.

The book is divided into four sections, by mountain and north,south,east and west. Each section of the land is represented by some very nice photography, some of it similar to what you might have seen before but more often unfamiliar scenery. It's well worth owning.

The book arrived in like new condition even though it was listed as used. It was shipped quickly and the cost was unbelievably low. A great book if you like scenic photography with an excellent forward and commentary on the locations in the photos. Shipped quickly!

We just returned from a trip to the Four Corners area, including some considerable time in Navajoland, and having this book is the next best thing to being there. The photos and text, both, capture the magic of this spectacularly beautiful and spiritually alive place and its people.
