Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
In this gripping pictorial book, two respected photographers view the Navaho Nation from opposite directions, as it were. Aerial photographer Adriel Heisey goes skyward to present the awesome landscape of the region, while photojournalist Kenji Kawano focuses on the striking faces and scenes of the people themselves.
Library Journal
Photographers Heisey (Under the Sun: A Sonoran Desert Odyssey) and Kawano (Warriors: Navajo Code Talkers) have both worked and lived with the Navajo people of Arizona and New Mexico. In this collection of eye-catching images, each contributes his unique vision. Heisey's color photos are mostly taken from the air, capturing the stark but beautiful landscape, as well as sheep camps, rodeos, and homes. Kawano, on the other hand, focuses on the people. His black-and-white portraits are of Navajo family members, usually taken two at a time. The book has been formatted to pair photographs by each artist on facing pages, so that a color landscape and a black-and-white portrait are viewed as a set. This method helps the reader develop a new appreciation for the Navajo and their way of life. In a short biographical essay, each photographer details his individual experience in the Navajo world, but the body of the book is the photography. Most suitable for regional collections. Gwen M.
