Navajo is from one of my all time favorite photos, taken by Carl Moon sometime in the early 1900's. When I was a little girl, my mother read stories to me by author Carl Moon about Indian life. Imagine my surprise when I learned that this famous photo that I thought was by Edward Curtis turned out to be the work of the same Carl Moon. Turns out that Carl Moon was an author and a prolific photographer of Indian life and subjects.
