Of Earth and Little Rain: The Papago Indians
An appreciation of the Tohono O'odham (long known as the Papago) Indians, whose reservation is the second largest in the United States.
"Fontana, who has lived at the edge of the Tohono O'odham (formerly Papago) Reservation for decades, provides sympathetic insight into the history and lifeways of these gentle desert dwellers. Schaefer's photographs, many of them portraits, add timeliness and immediate presence." —Books of the Southwest
"An unsurpassed insight into the Papago world, past and present." —Arizona Highways
