Explorations in Sights and Sounds
Wrapped around the cover of this volume is a painting by Emmi Whitehorse entitled, "White Shell Woman Story 111." This is an implication of Tapahonso’s Navajo origins -- mythical, historical, and persona -- which are evident throughout the book. In this work, Tapahonso seems to be aiming at a mainly non-Navajo audience to teach them about Navajo experience -- historical and present-day, collective and personal.
