Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Paiute, Seminole, Apache, Iroquois-their traditions, rituals and crafts are part of our heritage. This pocket encyclopedia, filled with more than 60 pages of full-color photos and illustrations and more than a hundred rare black-and-white photos of the 19th and early 20th centuries, brings you a stirring and exciting chronicle of history and culture. 280 pages (64 in color), 73 b/w illus., 5 1/8 x 7 1/2.

Book News Annotation:

Reprint of the Blandford Books (UK) edition of 1979. Turner seems a romantic tending to describe the Navajos (at least) in terms of the first half of this century. Heavily illustrated in b&w and color. Attractive, inexpensive, not a final authority.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
