This stunningly beautiful, oversized book is lavishly illustrated with breathtaking color imagery by America’s leading landscape photographers. In addition to the stunning photography, the book also includes detailed maps of the park and region and insightful, heartfelt narratives detailing the park’s natural and human histories.

The Navajo Nation may look like America, but once you enter its boundaries, you are traveling through a sovereign nation, with its own laws and ways of doing things. Remember that you are guest of the Navajo Nation and act accordingly. Take your cue from the people you meet. Although very diverse, many Navajo people are quiet and modest and may not respond to directness and curiosity they consider inappropriate (for example, direct eye contact during conversation and strong handshakes are considered ill-mannered). On the other hand, Navajos have a ripe, earthy sense of humor and love a good joke. Never enter people’s houses or land without permission, nor should you photograph Navajo people or ceremonials without prior permission. A small payment is expected if permission is granted.

Overall exceptional

The book itself doesn't focus on Monument Valley so much. I personally love that they have the history within the pages. I can see those who wouldn't like it because it doesn't talk too much about monument valley, but the title does say Navajo tribal park, so you must assume it is about the Navajo tribes. If you go in knowing that is what the book will be about, you won't be disappointed. I love anything history oriented so I really loved it. I like information and it provided plenty of it.


Great book.
