Photographer-author LeRoy DeJolie describes and shows his homeland as not only a ruggedly beautiful territory in the Four Corners region of Arizona but also as a part of his heritage and culture. His photos and stories of the Navajo way of life are intertwined as surely as strands of a rope. The book is richly illustrated with full-color landscape photography and tells stories about the ancient ways and beliefs of the Navajo people. Noting that DeJolie focuses on a Holy Land, Tony Hillerman compares the Navajo Creation Story withte Bible's Book of Genesis.

From the Inside Flap:

Come, join photographer LeRoy DeJolie on a visual tour of Navajoland, his homeland, an expanse that he sees not only as a ruggedly beautiful territory in the Four Corners region but also as the cradle of his heritage.And read writer LeRoy DeJolie's accounts of the Navajo way of life and religion, whch are intertwined as surely as strands of a rope.As you embark on this journey, bear in mind a point made by Tony Hillerman in his foreword - that the Navajo photographer focuses on a Holy Land. Hillerman's analogy compares the Navajo Creation Story with the Bible's Book of Genesis.In the coming pages, youw ill experience Navajoland as a Navajo does and in the way he wants others to experience it - not just as a wondrous landscape but also as a place with which to spiritually connect. For example, when a visitor to Navajoland sees Spider Rock, he or she sees a tall, sculpted tower rising from the floor of Canyon de Chelly. A Navajo sees the monolith as the home of Spider woman, who taught the Navajo people how to weave. Some Navajo parents also use the white-capped rock to help teach their children how to act in a harmonious, balanced manner.This book also displays photographic portfolios cnetering on each of the Navajos' four sacred mountains. Each portfolio is preceded by a vignette describing the physical features of each mountain and its significance in Navajo mythology.Indeed, in Navajoland, a native sone shares his legacy.

About the Author:

I see my work more as a mission than a job, says LeRoy DeJolie. It is my lifetime ambition to help preserve the heritage our Navajo ancestors desired for succeeding generations - a heritage that intertwines with the land. For many of oru people, that heritage is vanishing from their lives and memories as they are swept into the more cominant culturues aroud us.
