The Tony Hillerman Mysteries:
These novels, written over many years, in a series beginning with The Blessing Way, have introduced many, many people to the wonderful cultures and natural beauty of the Southwest.  We have read each one, often more than once, and highly recommend them, both for accuracy of content, and because they are great stories. The author was highly respected both for his respect for the traditions of the people he wrote about and his skill as a storyteller.
