There are now laws in various lands, including the Navajo Reservation, to protect artifacts from careless disturbance, from the idle collector of things. We would like to think that what this book has to say will lead to equal protection for the land, and for the beauty of things alive on the land, that gave grace to the lives of the ancient people to whom the Navajo wildlands were, as they are now, beautiful indeed.
