Forster spent from late 1931 until April '33 as the field nurse at Red Rock on the Navajo Reservations. These are her letters of the period; they are embellished by the photos of Laura Gilpin. A useful contribution to our knowledge of the time, place, people. No scholarly paraphernalia. Annotation(c) 2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
