When the Spaniards introduced the sheep to the Southwest, the course of the lives of the Navajo was changed.  They went from a hunter and gatherer nation to one who, by the mid-1500s had become a pastoral people. The sheep were not only a part of their diet, but became a source for wool weavings.  In this book, Don Dedera, former editor of Arizona Highways builds on this history with information relating to the the different areas and weavings.  He outlines the making of weavings from shearing to the finished product. He also gives tips on what to look for when buying and how to care for your weaving after you take it home. A must have book for anyone who is interested in Navajo weavings.
