Syllabus on Navajo Mysteries and Culture: The Four Corners with Tony Hillerman

Developed by Bruce Morrissey, Ph.D., this is the syllabus for a two-semester course in which the student should expect to read about 7 first class mystery novels each semester. While reading and enjoying the Tony Hillerman mysteries, students will discuss the examples of Navajo religion, spirituality and culture portrayed in the stories. Special thanks to Bruce Morrissey for giving his permission to repost this excellent syllabus.
