Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This is a thorough examination of one of the most fascinating places on earth. In a lavishly illustrated format, the author offers information on the plants, animals, geology, history, and native peoples of Monument Valley, located in the Four Corners area of the Southwestern states. Aitchison also supplies a complete listing of campgrounds, lodging, and guided tours throughout this sacred Navajo land. Personal anecdotes and experiences with the Navajo people punctuate the text, giving the reader a sense of warmth and understanding that can only come from a person who has spent an extensive amount of time in this timeless place. This unusual and beautiful guide deserves a spot in secondary geography and adult travel collections.-- Bruce Alan Hanson, Wayzata East J . H.S. Lib., Minn.
