This the story of Arizona's Navajo Indians, the largest Arizona tribe with the largest Reservation in the U.S. [larger than several of the NE states]...which includes several of the state's most famous attractions. The story, told using key terms in the Navajo language, encompasses the arts, the advanced social system the Navajos developed centuries ago, their accomplishments as poets, their fame as "Lords of the Land" during the 17th century, their comeback from near extinction by the U.S. government in the 1860s, and their spiritual way of life that serves them so well. It is a good read for residents as well as visitors.

About the Author
De Mente wrote the first ever books on the Japanese way of doing business (Japanese Etiquette and Ethics in Business in 1959 and How to Do Business in Japan in 1962), and was the first to introduce the now commonly used Japanese terms wa, nemawashi, kaizen, tatemae-honne, shibui, sabi and wabi to the outside business world!
His 70-plus other books run the gamut from language learning to the night-time "pink" trades in Japan, the role of bars, cabarets and geisha houses in business, the sensual nature of Oriental cultures, male-female relations, and understanding and coping with the Chinese, Japanese, Korean and Mexican mindset in business and social situations.
De Mente has called Arizona his home since the 1960s and has written extensively about the state, including THE GRAND CANYON ANSWER BOOK, AMERICA'S FAMOUS HOPI INDIANS and VISITOR'S GUIDE TO ARIZONA'S INDIAN RESERVATIONS.
