As a companion volume to Nativities of the World, this book features a collection of photos of one-of-a-kind nativities from the American Southwest, including many made by native Pueblo, Navajo and Tohono O'odham artists and artisans, as well as others based in the traditions of the other two dominant cultures of the Southwest: Spanish and Anglo. Nativity collectors from around the world will be thrilled to see these examples, which are made from both traditional and nontraditional materials, many of which have never before appeared in print.
