Where the Two Came to Their Father
A Navaho War Ceremonial Given by Jeff King
Paperback ISBN: 0691020698
This work takes its title from the richly symbolic creation legend of the Navaho people, which they incorporated into their blessing ceremony for tribe members headed to battle. Having observed this rite during World War II, when native Americans were for the first time drafted into the U.S. military, ethnologist Maud Oakes recorded the legend and made reproductions of the beautiful ceremonial paintings, given to her by the medicine man Jeff King. Originally printed separately in a portfolio, the text and eighteen paintings are now available as a bound book.

Hanford Site Historic District
History of the Plutonium Production Facilities, 1943-1990

In 1996, the US Department of Energy and the Washington State Historic Preservation Office designated the Hanford Site Manhattan Project and Cold War Era facilities as a Historic District. Many of the facilities have been or will be destroyed, so this book's photographs and narrative history is intended to serve as a record of the structures and activities related to producing plutonium at the Hanford Site during the Manhattan Project and the Cold War. The main authors are archaeologists, architectural historians, and anthropologists, who worked in conjunction with Hanford staff for verification of accuracy and authenticity.
