Fans of Tony Hillerman’s mysteries, featuring Navajo policemen Joe Leaphorn and Jim Chee, will delight in Laurance Linford’s obsessively detailed guide to every single mesa, pueblo, trading post and gully mentioned in the books. This second edition adds 45 new locations to the hundreds described in the original. Each entry notes in which book and chapter the location is mentioned, and an appendix explains the subtleties of Navajo pronunciation: jádí, antelope, sounds like "jewel."
