Hail Chant and Water Chant, Navajo Religion Series\, Volume II\, illustrated

John Bianchi, Boston, Massachusetts, 1946

Description

Juror Notes

A book in which the color reproductions of sand paintings are altogether admirable. In size it is not so large or cumbersome as most art books, and it is actually light in weight owing to the thin paper used for both text and illustrations. The index and explanatory matter are capably handled.
