Summary:

This is an ethnography of Navajo weavers and herders. In this book, Reichard explores the intersection between the fiber arts, mythology, and sand painting, all told in first person. Although completely factual, it reads like a novel. The book is also significant because it is a woman anthropologist exploring the world of Navajo women, their material and spiritual culture.
