From Publishers Weekly:

This book of 50 color photographs documents the lives and environment of Southwest Native Americans today. Aware of the stereotypes that poet Tapahonso describes in a short essay, McAuley focuses with ironic, deliberate wit on societal conceptions of the American Indian and of the "wild west." We see children practising archery with storebought bows; a motor-scooter stands outside a traditional hogan dwelling; tourists take snapshots of a tiny herd of bison fenced alongside an interstate highway; a group of six tepees picturesquely dot an Arizonan vistabehind a sign proclaiming "going out of business; everything price." The photos are punctuated by 10 short stories by Navajo "Medicine-person" Mitchell, who notes the continuity (rather than change) of Native American life. Sandweiss's ( Laura Gilpin: An Enduring Grace ) articulate, insightful essay describes the history of the American Indian as a photographic subject, and places McAuley's first book of photos in context.
