This practical, easy-to-use Navajo dictionary is intended primarily for Navajo children learning to read and write the language in bilingual classrooms. It presents over 1,500 noun and 330 verb entries, all selected because they are words used in and around the school. But the audience for this book has always been larger than just youngsters: it has proven useful for anyone wanting to learn Navajo--adults and children alike. For each of the thirty-six letters in the Navajo alphabet, this dictionary provides first a listing of nouns followed by verbs. For most of the nouns and all of the verbs, an illustration is also included to aid in learning by providing a visual reference. While the dictionary is organized using the Navajo alphabet, the index gives non-native speakers a complete list of all the English translations from Navajo. Originally published in 1983 as part of a Ramah Navajo School Board, Inc., initiative to develop bilingual educational materials in the Navajo language, this book has remained in print and helped an entire generation of students learn Navajo. Its re-publication by the University of New Mexico Press, in cooperation with the Ramah Navajo School Board, Inc., helps fulfill each institution's respective mission of promoting cultural literary.

In Navajo, numerous prefixes combine with verb roots to form single words that, in English translation, require a phrase or even a sentence to convey their meaning. Therefore, verb stems and prefixes must be mastered piece by piece to understand the language. This volume leads the reader carefully and systematically through the complexities of the Navajo verb system. By doing so, the book makes Navajo more accessible to all those interested in the American Indian language with the largest number of speakers in the United States.

Harold Baxter Liebler, Episcopal priest, came to the Utah strip of the Navajo Reservation in 1942 to establish St. Christopher's Mission near Monument Valley. In a land of stunning beauty and amazing isolation, Liebler worked ceaselessly to improve health and educational standards until his death in 1982. Covering the years 1942-62, Boil My Heart for Me is a description of one person's life in the remote Utah strip at mid-century. Liebler's humorous, self-effacing account describes the establishment of St. Christopher's, day-to-day encounters with local Navajos and Anglos, and his efforts in the face of endless adversity to mediate the enormous gap between two cultures. In his spiritual work, Liebler combined Christian and Native American approaches, walking a fine line between Anglo and traditional Navajo values. The story of H. Baxter Liebler is an essential piece in the mosaic of Four Corners history.
