Navajo Country Geographic Dictionary & Guide, Diné Bikéyah
A Geographic Dictionary of the Navajo Lands in the 1930s by Richard Van Valkenburgh (Reprint, 130 pages, 18 maps, key to Navajo alphabet and extensive bibliography.)
Diné Bikéyah molds the history, folklore, anthropology and geography into a fascinating guide to the lands of the Navajo Nation and near-by areas prior to WWII. This is a classic source for reference and research and a fun read.
To help standardize spellings of geographical locations, Diné Bikéyah was one of the first publications to use the official Indian Department system of writing the Navajo language. Research for this gazetteer was compiled by Navajo elders and prominent scholars of the day.
