(1987)
America's Sacred Land
A non fiction book by

 
 
With characteristic style and grace, Tony Hillerman describes the intangible yet powerful aura of the Southwest, America's sacred land, while photographer Bela Kalman captures its beauty through his color photographs. The book is a tribute to a land where the land's spirits are as real as it inhabitants.

Now in its third printing, 'Indian Country: America's Sacred Land'is now available exclusively from the University of New Mexico Press.

"First Man spread a blue blanket on the ground, shaped the mountain, pinned it to the earth with a magic flint knife, decorated it with gems of turquoise, and assigned another 'yei' from the Navajo pantheon of spirits, Turguoise Girl, to live on Mosca Peak, forever guarding the Navajo from the evils that might disrupt their harmony with the universe. There, in the poetry of the Navajo creation story, the bluebirds nest. And there the morning mists form the holy House Made of Dawn." --Tony Hillerman
