Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Perhaps no other American community embodies the conflicting forces of the past, present, and future more powerfully than the Navajo people, the largest Native-American group in the Untied States. Filled with spectacular full-color photographs, this volume is a compassionate and unflinching portrait of a people caught between ancient order and constant flux, of a nation that refuses to disappear in the shadow of a vastly larger one.

Book News Annotation:

Author Lindig and photographer Teiwes chronicle the history of the largest group of Native Americans in the US and, using this historical framework, explore aspects of life on the modern reservation, including the important role of women in Navajo society, the Navajo's school system, traditional healing methods, crafts, religion, and the current fight to revitalize Navajo lifeways in the face of the overwhelming force of American popular culture. Includes 133 color and 35 b&w photographs. Translated from the (presumably German) Swiss edition of 1991 (Zurich: U. Bar Verlag).
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
