Overview

Traditions that began ten thousand years ago have survived and remain vital in the lives of the descendants of these ancient people. People of Legend surveys the terrain inhabited by each of six principal tribal groups, relates their creation myths and the history of their conquest, and presents a portfolio of 87 stunning photographs of the landscapes and peoples in the heartland of Native America. In southeastern Arizona, Annerino visits the Apache to photograph a coming-of-age ceremony in which a young girl is identified with White Shell Woman, the guardian spirit who watches over the tribe and protects its future. In the Sonoran desert of southwestern Arizona, an old Papago man points out ancient petroglyphs, familiar to him, uninterpretable to the anthropologist today. The Sierra Madre Mountains of northern Mexico are home to the Mountain Pima, where Indian men, their faces painted white, welcome the American photographer into their sacred ritual. Further on the journey, a Hualapai guide takes Annerino down the Colorado, a trip the man's ancestors have taken for a thousand years. In the mesa country of northern Arizona, a Navajo elder reminisces about working for Army Intelligence during World War II. This cultural odyssey ends in the redrock country of New Mexico, home to Pueblo peoples such as the Zuni, Keresan, and Tewa, and the site of the largest traditional Gathering of Nations in the Southwest.

Editorial Reviews

San Francisco Chronicle
...offers a rare glimpse of coming-of-age ceremonies and feasts, and vivid re-enactments of ancient dances.
Booknews
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.
