About this title

Synopsis:

"This is a book of superb photographs. Its portraits of individuals and family groups convey a quality of intimacy and serenity; its landscapes spread out the dramatic setting of desert, mountain, and canyon in which these people live; and its scenes of daily activity show many of the details of the way their life has been lived. Among the pictorial records of Navajo country and life, Miss Gilpin's volume deserves a special place. --American Anthropologist "This is not a brand new book, nor a best-seller here today and gone tomorrow. It is record of the Navajo people and their country, a book to keep and to refer to over and over again, always with deep pleasure. Do friends ask you about the Navajos? Send them this book, for it is the heart of the tribe. --The Navajo Times "This book can't be summarized successfully. It needs to be seen and read, and then savoured again and again for a joyous adventure in beauty and spirit. --Santa Fe New Mexican ." . . a touching tribute to The People, to their endurance and their adaptability, to their vanishing way of life and to the new one opening ahead of them. --Sacramento Bee A contemporary of Mary Austin, Mabel Dodge Luhan, and Willa Cather, Laura Gilpin was unique among women chroniclers of the Southwest because she worked in photography. She perceived the region as an environment for human activity rather than a place for untouched beauty, and her empathy for her subjects is evident in her work. Even in her eighties--ignoring the physical infirmities of age--she would camp overnight to be near a place she wanted to photograph at the break of day. The vast empty stretches of the southwestern desert did not deter her. She thought nothing ofdriving several hundred miles to make one image of a Navajo ceremony or making a long flight in a small plane to see a particular mountain peak. Gilpin's sixty-year career established her as one of the outstanding photographers of the twentieth century. Here are her pictures of the Navaho people and the stories of their lives in the 1950s and 1960s.

Terms of Sale:

BOOKS SHIPPED WITHIN MISSOURI are subject to a 8.450 sales tax. Books shipped outside of the US are subject to a small surcharge.


Shipping Terms:

IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ.

Orders to be shipped outside the US can be paid for either a) through ABE, in which case there will be a surcharge of about 5-10% due to the very high postal shipping charges by the U.S. Post Office, and the fact that ABE's fees apply both to the price of the book and the shipping; or, b)you can pay by way of PayPal, in which case there is no surcharge.  If you choose to pay via ABE I will inform you of the amount of the surcharge as an 'extra charge,' which you can either accept or cancel the order.

 Domestically, you can order the book through ABE, and if possible, pay via PayPal or through ABE.

Orders usually ship within 2 business days. Since recent changes in postal rates, shipping overseas has become very expensive and the cost unpredictable, depending as much on size and shape of a book as weight.  The matrix prices are very unreliable.  All packages now go Priority Mail (airmail).  Contrary to the matrix, there is no 'standard' rate offered by the post office here.  In general (there are exceptions)smaller books (octavos) weighing less than 4 pounds, can generally be shipped for $24.75.  Larger books, in general, are $61.75 though this price may be a bit higher or lower.  Shipping to Canada is considerably less. Please contact me before ordering and I will send you the actual shipping cost.  Please do not rely on the matrix. Also, all books now go Air Mail, and the Post Office estimates delivery in 6-10 days.  There is no longer any ground service.  Insurance (where available) is optional.
