Navajoland: A Native Son Shares His Legacy

by

Navajoland: A Native Son Shares His Legacy Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Photographer-author LeRoy DeJolie describes and shows his homeland as not only a ruggedly beautiful territory in the Four Corners region of Arizona but also as a part of his heritage and culture. His photos and stories of the Navajo way of life are intertwined as surely as strands of a rope. The book is richly illustrated with full-color landscape photography and tells stories about the ancient ways and beliefs of the Navajo people. Noting that DeJolie focuses on a Holy Land, Tony Hillerman compares the Navajo Creation Story withte Bible's Book of Genesis.

Synopsis:

- One of Arizona Highways' Special Scenic Collection books, Navajoland is an excellent souvenir book for Arizonans and out-of-state travelers enamored with Native American culture and the landscape of the Four Corners.

- A foreword by Tony Hillerman, who has published numerous mystery novels set on the Navajo Reservation.

- Two-page photographic spreads and verbal vignettes of the Navajos' four sacred mountains.

- Captions link the Navajo landscape to the history, culture, and lore of the Dine, as the Navajo call themselves.
