Monument Valley - The Story Behind the Scenery
by KC DenDooven
Monument Valley is a land of people, of formations, of mystery and mood. To the Navajo it is home. To first-time visitors it is one of the most awesome spectacles of nature they have ever seen. To repeat visitors it is a great place to return again and again, a place of beauty and memories yet a place where there is always something more to experience in the Navajo tribal lands located in northeastern Arizona and southeastern Utah.
Monument Valley, The Story Behind the Scenery, chronicles more than just the dramatic landscape. It delivers an intimate portrait in words and pictures of the Navajo people as well as historic pioneers who lived there, such as Mike and Harry Goulding; all of the photographs in this enchanting book are by Josef Muench, making it a true collectors' item.
As world renowned photographer, Josef Muench comments in The Story Behind the Scenery, "Nowhere in the world can one find a similar effect of nature's work. Words alone--the thousand-foot pyramid and castles, the slender tower, bridges and arches--cannot begin to describe the sandstone formations that dominate Monument Valley."
