Legendary tribal sleuths Leaphorn and Chee are back! The supremely talented daughter of New York Times bestselling author Tony Hillerman continues his popular series. It happened in an instant. After a breakfast with colleagues, Navajo Nation Police Officer Bernadette Manuelito sees a sedan careen into the parking lot and hears a crack of gunfire. When the dust clears, someone very close to her is lying on the asphalt in a pool of blood. With the victim in the hospital fighting for his life, every person in the squad and the local FBI office are hell-bent on catching the gunman. Bernie, too, wants in on the investigation, especially when her husband, Sergeant Jim Chee, is put in charge of finding the shooter. Bernie and Chee discover that a cold case involving Chee's former boss and partner, retired lieutenant Joe Leaphorn, may hold the key to the shooting. Digging into the old investigation with fresh eyes and new urgency, husband and wife find themselves inching closer to the truth with every clue . . . and closer to a killer who will do anything to prevent justice from taking its course.

Weaving Is Life features multiple generations of Navajo weavers. Exquisitely crafted artworks and compelling first-hand narratives demonstrate how Navajo weaving functions as an important carrier of cultural values. Those with expertise in weaving practice are valued repositories of traditional cultural knowledge. Navajo weaving reinforces and allows the artist to participate in values of hard work, thrift, and creativity. It facilitates knowledge of and the proper care and nurturing of the environment. Weavers are depended upon to convey insight and expertise to subsequent generations, which has served to further important mother-daughter and grandmother-granddaughter bonds. Featured artists include D. Y. Begay, Grace Henderson Nez, Mary Henderson Begay, Gloria Jean Begay, Glenabah Hardy, Irene Clark, Teresa Clark, Lillie Taylor, Rosie Taylor, and Diane Taylor-Beall. D. Y. Begay also contributes an insightful essay on her experience as co-curator of the exhibition that accompanies this publication. Essays by Janet Catherine Berlo and Jennifer McLerran focus on the transcultural development of Navajo weaving, exploring the influence of varied markets and audiences-including indigenous, tourist, and fine arts-on traditional forms and practices. Museum educator Sally Delgado addresses the educational value of Navajo weaving practices for non-Native students.

Volume 5. Indian Country, 51 pages, 47 pictures. The Chispita books are written on the premise that an adult reader can use the experiences of Pita to teach/enhance the life experiences of a growing child as well as the fun of games, puzzles and adventures that the world has to offer. Volume five Indian Country is an adventure to the ancient dwellings and mythical lands of the south west, using an "up front motor truck with a home on the back," (Pita's words!) Starting at Tucson Arizona the adventure takes our Pita Kid's north thru Arizona, Utah and New Mexico, to marvel at the histories and mythologies of the Anasazi, Mogollon, Hohokam, and Acoma peoples. Chispita has a lesson about snake's for her safety and learns that far away is good, but at Casa Grande when she hears about "Snake-Towns" with "Pit Houses and ball courts" only a Archaeologist can calm her mind. Pow-wow's, Grand Canyons and Dinosaur tracks are but a few of the wonders to entertain her Pita Kid's as the adventure proceeds north. At Monument Valley a side trip by horseback to the Betatakin ruins and Mystery Valley are the highlight of this area. Traveling on to Canyon De Chelly we are mystified by "Wind people," Spider Woman and Anasazi mythologies. Entering New Mexico we find the magnificent ruins of the Chaco Canyon culture, where the Pita Kid's will marvel at the "Ancient Ones" Observatories, Pictographs, Great Houses and Kivas. We all laugh when Pita finds a large? Green make-believe monster, but its here at the Pueblo Alto ruins where Chispita meets and makes friends with Earl the photographer, whom she will later team with to save the day, when a old bad snake intrudes. All punctuated by graphic photos, "enjoy"
