Overview

The definitive guide to the richly imaginative folk art of the Navajo.

Witty polka-dotted chickens. Purple pickup trucks sculpted out of mud. A Navajo grandma riding an orange cardboard giraffe. For more than two decades, Chuck and Jan Rosenak have been avid collectors of unique pieces of Navajo folk art like this. Their collection, research, and writing have helped to define and illustrate an art form that ranges from wooden carvings of eerie three-headed skinwalkers to vibrant pictures painted on old bed sheets. This new edition of the Rosenaks' groundbreaking Navajo Folk Art is the essential guide to a comic, intensely creative, truly American art.
