“The honest, unvarnished landscape of the Four Corners region of New Mexico, Arizona, Utah and Colorado was essential to the plots and atmosphere of Hillerman’s books; he knew and loved it well. . . . Though no photograph can fully capture the immensity of that Southwestern sky, many of Strel’s come close. For Hillerman fans, this volume is a must-have.”
“A multilayered odyssey . . . Tony Hillerman’s Landscape is an alluring and assiduously researched travel memoir, and a revealing behind-the-scenes chronicle of the peoples and settings that inspired Hillerman’s atmospheric mysteries. It’s a must-have for fans of Southwest mysteries and devotees of Indian Country.”
