About the author (1986)

Laurence Urdang is a professional lexicographer.

Lee, writer and artist, visited the land of the Colorado Plateau 20 years ago. A few years later, she and her husband bought some land east of Flagstaff, built a house, and relocated from Massachusetts. She has been a freelance writer and artist for many years. Her job as managing editor of the Navajo-Hopi Observer allowed her to pursue her long-standing interest in the Native cultures of northern Arizona and Grand Canyon.
