Great exposition on the importance of place.,

This review is from: Wisdom Sits in Places: Landscape and Language Among the Western Apache (Paperback)
Keith Basso weaves together a work of anthropology that thoroughly explores the importance of place-naming in Western Apache culture. He provides the reader with vignettes of his informants that serves his greater thesis quite well. The reader has the sense of the integration of place-naming in the culture through these vignettes. Superb!!!
