Piñon Country [University of Nebraska Press, paperback, 1986]

This is the full and detailed view of Piñon Country by Haniel Long. First published in 1941 by Duell, Sloan, and Pearce, this edition from the University of Nebraska Press contains a foreward by Tony Hillerman.

The cover of this paperback volume was designed by Tony Schappaugh. The front cover art is a detail of a painting by Wilson Hurley from 1976 entitled Los Alamos Country and shows a reddish brown rocky outcrop above a sheer drop in the foreground. Piñon trees dot the landscape, which is covered with snow, and climbs to a high red rock butte on the right and taller mountain peaks capped with snow in the distance.

The illustration wraps around the spine and a small portion is visible on the back cover. Three press quotes are printed in black on white on the back cover, above a synopsis of the book and the cover credits. The ISBN and book price are printed at the bottom of the back cover.
