The Book of the Navajo by Raymond Friday Locke
"Locke writes splendidly; this is history laced with data; 'you are there' commentary and poetic symbolism. He rarely minces words." --Boston Globe"A publishing phenomenon without parallel, to my knowledge, in the general field of cultural studies, Locke's book attempts, rather successfully, a synthesis of Navajo history and a description of Navajo life, bringing both notions right up to the present. At least as opinionated as some of the authors, bureaucrats and commentators it lambastes...this book is nonetheless a remarkably readable, arguable comprehensive, and indisputable successful effort that is more Navajo-centric and -philic than any other I have read." --W. David Laird Books of the Southwest. Call for wholesale pricing.
