New Mexico Magazine
“A multilayered odyssey . . .

It’s a must-have for fans of Southwest mysteries and devotees of Indian Country.”
Publishers Weekly
Before his death in 2007, Tony Hillerman, one of America's best loved mystery writers, produced 18 novels grounded in the Native American cultures of the desert Southwest. The honest, unvarnished landscape of the Four Corners region of New Mexico, Arizona, Utah and Colorado was essential to the plots and atmosphere of Hillerman's books; he knew and loved it well, and helped plan this illustrated travelogue before his passing. (An introduction and quotes from his memoir, Seldom Disappointed, acknowledge and ameliorate Tony Hillerman's absence.) Hillerman's daughter, Anne, and her husband, photographer Strel, document their journey using Hillerman's books (and memory) as a tour guide. Along with memories of family research trips in her childhood, Anne records her impressions of the vast Four Corners region, pairing a synopsis of each book with photos of landscapes, trading posts, archaeological sites, abandoned hogans (traditional Navajo houses), and people from the Navajo, Hopi and Zuni tribes. She also provides short discussions of historical events, ceremonies, mythology, and other topics germane to the novels. Though no photograph can fully capture the immensity of that Southwestern sky, many of Strel's come close. For Hillerman fans, this volume is a must-have.

    Outstanding For Those Who Love Tony Hillerman

    Since his death there is a sadness that no more Tony Hillerman books will appear on the shelves. This book was a very welcome surprise. It will inspire me to reread the complete library of my Hillerman books. Interesting background information and great photographs. Gene Russell

    A touching memorial for a well loved father and great interpreter of the culture of the native peoples of the 4 Corners area of the Southwest.

    Several other books have been published dealing with generally the same topic, but none have the intimacy and insight that Anne Hillerman has provided in her visual and verbal tour of the country that her father loved so well. The primary commentary is meaningful in guiding the casual traveler through this beloved landscape, but the real genius of the work is her memories of travels to these places while accompanying her father or listening to his recollections. Not only regarding the Leaphorn and Chee novels, but also in respect for the people who have lived there for at least 600 years, their reverence for the land, and their belief system which embraces its sometimes awful, but always awesome, natural beauty.

    Definitely a Collector's Item, but for me a nostalgic journey across the region and through the memory of a man who loved this land like few others have.

    Must Read

    If you have read any or all of Tony Hillerman's books, then this is a book you need to have. Written by his daughter, it takes you to all the places that Tony talks about in his books.

    A Great Pass Along Book

    Beautiful photography with a homespun commentary by Anne, the daughter. Those of us who looked forward to each new Tony Hillerman book can truly appreciate this added bonus.

    Very interesting.

    I ordered this book after reading the first two of Tony Hillerman's novels in the Joe Leaphorn & Jim Chee series. The "Landscape" book is quite informative and makes an excellent companion to the novels in Hillerman's series. There are some beautiful photos. Each of the novels are briefly described and introduced in the "Landscape" book along with the illustrations/photos of some locations mentioned in the novels.

    Beautiful! Thank you!

    I bought this and Hillerman's first Leaphorn mystery for my dad, who loves visiting this part of the country. Before delivering them, I enjoyed reading and viewing the landscape book myself. Though it's been a while since I read the mysteries, the excerpts and photographs enriched my appreciation for the people, the places, and Tony Hillerman's writing. Anne did a fine job selecting excerpts to accompany the many places pictured. Arranging the photographs by books and somewhat by chronology (and topic) built upon my already solid appreciation for "Tony Hillerman country". And we may have a new fan for the mysteries now.

    Tony Hillerman's Landscape

    The best of the several books which interpret or describe the scenes of Tony Hillerman's Southwest mysteries. The photography is beautiful-makes one one to pack up and leave for the region. Anne Hillerman's writing flows beautifully with the photography. Definitely one of my new favorites about the Southwest and a fine addition to the Tony Hillerman collection.

    About one of my favorite authors.

    This is about Tony Hillerman, by his daughter and son-in-law's photos. Having wanted to teach in the Indian school in the Navajo reservation at one time, Tony's stories about the people and country has had a great appeal to me. As a kid I loved Zane Grey's novels, and his word pictures of the landscapes where his stories took place. Likewise Tony Hillerman does the same in the vast Four Corner area of our nation. His daughter and her husband,takes us on a tour of the country Tony wrote about, with fabulous photos. And she ties his stories into the landscape as they visit it.
    She definitely has Tony's writing genes. Two years ago at my daughter's invitation, my wife and I got to visit that country, and Ann,and Don's work, give me pleasant memories of the trip. I can't praise the book enough.

    A Book for your Senses

    The essence of the backgrounds of Tony Hillerman's books is captured by Anne Hillerman's description and history of the subjects and Don Strel's striking photography of the land. Combined, they speak to the soul. This is a fine book for those who have enjoyed Tony Hillerman's Leaphorn and Chee books and a wonderful introduction for those who have not yet had the pleasure of reading these books.

    Beautiful Book!

    This is a beauatiful book as well as an informative one. As a huge fan of Tony Hillerman, I am enjoying it very much. It makes his stories come alive. This part of the Southwest is my favorite area of the US but I have not been to all the places in the book--would love to do that some daya. This is a coffee table book that is for reading,, too.
