Presents portraits and landscapes of six major tribal groups and their native grounds

Book News
A documentary paying homage to the sacred traditions and landscapes of six major Native American tribes in the Southwest. Annerino shares a brilliant travelogue of photos and interviews culled from 20 years of exploration, inviting readers to view the coming of age ceremony of a young Apache girl and the sacred rituals of the Mountain Pima, engage in conversation with a Navajo elder who worked for Army Intelligence during World War II, and be present at the "Gathering of Nations" celebration of the Pueblo in New Mexico. As is the case with most Sierra Club Books, the photography is breathtaking and intimate supplemented by an equally high quality text. Lacks an index. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
