"In the late 1940s and early 1950s the great anthropological photographer John Collier Jr. made nearly one thousand photographs documenting Navajo life in Fruitland, New Mexico, near the Four Corners. Lost until recently in archives far from the Southwest, most of these photos have never before been published. The authors of this book have assembled a selection of Collier's Navajo photographs showing the changes in post-World War II reservation life."--Jacket.
