Diné: A History of the Navajos by Peter Iverson (Author), Monty Roessel (Photographer)

My wife and I became hooked on listening to the wonderful Tony and Anne Hillerman Navajo mysteries on CD in the car. That led us to wanting to know more about the Navajo Nation. As a Marines, I already knew and honored the Navajo Code Talkers who served in the USMC in WWII. This book is a comprehensive and sympatric history of the people, from which I learned a great deal. It made me want to visit the Four Corners area, though given my age, health, and finances, that’s probably not on offer. Bot the historical photos and Roessel’s amazing color pictures of the reservation are an added bonus. I highly recommend this book.
