Navajo History. Volume 1.
Yazzie, Ethelou, Ed.
This volume, an account of the prerecorded history of the Navajos, is the first of a series of two volumes. (Volume 2 will take up recorded history.) From the knowledge of verbal literature supplied by Navajos themselves, this composite was completed to help alleviate the lack of materials on Navajo culture. Consensus, the authors point out, was not an easy task, since there are many different versions of the origin of the Navajos and of the accounts of the various underworlds. Numerous drawings and photographs illustrate this beautifully told story of the creation and origin of the Navajos. (JLB)
