New York; (1994): Harper Collins. First Edition. Octavo. Item #027498
375 pages. The uncorrected proof signed by Tony Hillerman. Besides the helpful summaries of his first twelve books (omitting the conclusions for the fan who wants to discover the end for himself), there is an important self-effacing interview with Hillerman by Jon L. Breen and an essay on Navajo culture by George Hardeen. The long section on the characters in his novels becomes, in effect, a concordance helping those not intimately familiar with the names common to Navajo culture but not to most readers. Bound in stiff paper wraps printed in black. A fine copy.
