9780881507164: Indian Country: Sacred Ground, Native Peoples

In his latest book, John Annerino―famed photographer and writer of America's desert southwest and old Mexico―went in search of clues that would unlock the mysteries of places sacred to the native peoples of the Colorado Plateau, Great Plains, sierra Madre, and Sonoran Desert.

In the land inhabited for millennia by the Hopi, Navajo, Pápago, and Apache―and with the help of native leaders, who guided him to hallowed, secret places―Annerino scaled 13,000-foot mountain summits and descended into shadowy caves; he traced the footsteps of legendary warriors to granite strongholds and traced the handprints of ancient ancestral shamans on cliff walls. Along the way he chronicled his astonishing pilgrimage, capturing in remarkable photographs and evocative words a world that few of us have been privileged to glimpse, let alone partake in. Many of the lofty spires, towering monuments, and deep canyons that Annerino explored throughout the Great Southwest are familiar sites from Hollywood westerns and are sought out by avid climbers. But these sites are sacred ground to native peoples, and it is that venerated identity that Annerino experienced and conveys in Indian Country. His photographs and essays pull back the curtain on a timeless world and reveal some of the mysteries to be found within.

From the Back Cover:

"As a medicine man, I practice my beliefs by praying and singing during the traditional ceremonies that are sacred to us Apaches. We pray to the Four Directions--East, South, West, and North--and we have respect for every being. Through his words and pictures, John Annerino conveys the spiritual significance of our peoples' sacred places to those who aren't familiar with them. I have enjoyed knowing and working with him through the years."
--Robertson Preston, Medicine Man, San Carlos Apache

"John Annerino is one of a handful of photographers with a real empathy for the West. His work has an edge to it, reflecting the sheer size and power of his subject - a subject he treats with respect and love. This land, which is so much a part of the American psyche, now threatened by pollution, by the spread of human settlement, and by exploitation, is as raw and as exciting in Annerino's work as it is in our mind's eye." 
--Guy Cooper, Picture Editor, Newsweek
