Navajo History: The Land and the People.
Acrey, Bill P.
This textbook for high school, college, or adult readers covers the history and culture of the Navajo People from their own perspective from the coming of American control in 1846 until 1978. Topics include the last Navajo war, the Long Walk, the impact of Navajo agents on policy, early traders and flourishing of crafts, settlement of reservation boundaries, modern political changes, the New Deal, education and health concerns in the 1920's and 1930's, World War II, and current reservation issues. Footnotes follow each chapter; a bibliography of 117 books, articles, and government publications and a subject index are included. Maps, charts, and 50 illustrations, mostly black and white photographs, enrich the text. Eight United States-Navajo treaties comprise the appendices. (LFL)
