The stunning pictures of the landscape where Jim Chee and Joe Leaphorn solved crimes, along with her memories of Tony Hillerman (Anne's Dad) have been beautifully packaged by HarperCollins, Tony Hillerman's long-time publisher. Anne included excerpts from the descriptions Dad wrote so magnificently.
