    Edition: First printing.

    New York: Doubleday, (1994) dj. Hardcover first edition - "From 1933 to 1937, the great American anthropologist Edward T. Hall lived and worked on reservations in the Southwest, a frontier where four cultures - Navajo, Hopi, Hispanic, and Anglo - clashed. Re-creating that stark and haunting landscape, Hall pieces together a firsthand account of two proud worlds - the frugal, Pueblo-dwelling Hopi with their isolated villages high on the mesa tops and their deeply felt religious faith and the Navajos, whose rhythm and ceremonious forms of respect Hall learned as he worked with them." Maps and photographs. Selected Readings. Index. xxx, 187 pp plus final double page map. ISBN: 0-385424213.

    Condition: Fine in fine dust jacket.
