Raymond Locke () was an editor, historian, and the author of The Book of the Navajo; Sweet Salt: Navajo Folklore and Mythology; and Seldom Sung Songs. He also presented lectures throughout the US regarding Native American history/5(40). I consider it the The book of the Navajo book book on Navajo history written by a non-native.

Fredrick Danysh rated it liked it/5. The book of the Navajo is beautifully written and gives a much needed view unfettered by anthropological conjecture/5(2).
