ONE HUNDRED YEARS OF NAVAJO RUGS by Marian E. Rodee. University of New Mexico Press, 1720 Lomas Blvd. N.E., Albuquerque, NM 87131-1591, (505) 277-2346, (505) 277-9270 FAX. Illustrated, index, maps, reading list. 199 pp., $29.95 paper. 0-8263-1576-3

Revised and expanded from Rodee's 1981 edition of "Old Navajo Rugs," this history of the great Navajo weavers (primarily from 1900-1940), and the trading posts, Indian agencies, and museums that bought their rugs, includes many black-and-white and color plates from all periods. The book is well-researched (though a list of sources for the blankets would have been helpful) and recommended for both libraries and collectors. Grade: B. Reviewed by Steve Brock
