Billie Jane Baguley Library and Archives Collection Spotlight for January 2016

January 26, 2016

Mountains hold special significance for many American Indians for reasons as diverse as the ranges and the people who hold them dear.  These four titles represent another wide range of ways to view mountains from discussing sacred places to serving as powerful metaphors.  Currently on display in the public reading area of the library, mountains loom large in this month’s selections.  Please feel free to visit the library to review these or any other items of interest in the library and archives collections.  For more details or additional collection information, click on the Search Catalog link located in the pull-down menu of the library tab on the this website.
