The book of the Navajo
Written by Raymond Friday Locke
Raymond Friday Locke brings Navajo history and legends to life in a book that is fascinating, informative and vital to our understanding. It is the Navajo's own history taken from the authentic Navajo "Singer" tales. It is tribal history extended through two hundred years of bitter conflict with Spain, the Civil War internment by the USA in a futile search for gold on Navajo land (to finance the Union army), the evolution of the relations between the tribe and the Bureau of Indian Affairs, right up to the still on-going Navajo-Hopi land dispute and the (Tribal Council Chairman) Peter MacDonald scandal. The book of the Navajo is a work that shows us why the Navajos face a uncertain future that demands America's attention.
