"In depicting the characters of the story I have used no incidents or details which are not true. Nevertheless, even though photographs aid in illustrating types, the description of the actors, the relationship they bear to one another, and the episodes in which they appear are all fictional. I know no Navajo exactly like anyone here portrayed"--Page vi.
