This is the only comprehensive source on the whimsical and warm-hearted creations that authors Chuck and Jan Rosenak termed "Navajo folk art." After the publication of Navajo Folk Art in 1994 (then titled The People Speak), this wonderful art finally received the recognition deserved. The value and exposure of Navajo folk art has increased dramatically, igniting the interests of everyone from art collectors and museum curators to casual buyers looking for unique adornments for their homes. The Rosenak's extensive collection was recently purchased by the Smithsonian Institution, which has plans to show it in a traveling exhibit. From "superstar" Mamie Deschillie, a traditional Navajo woman of the older generation who makes fanciful collages of cardboard and discarded fabrics, to teenage carver Delbert Buck, whose humorous sculptures were first represented in commercial galleries when he was fourteen, Navajo folk artists exemplify an indomitable spirit.
