Canyon de Chelly National Monument Book


Canyon de Chelly National Monument contains 130 square miles of land owned by the Navajo Nation. Each visitor to the park becomes a guest of the Navajo people, who have made their homes in the canyon for generations, never far from the history of earlier inhabitants. Within the monument boundaries, the National Park Service protects one of the highest concentrations of prehistoric cliff dwellings in the Southwest. In addition to these dwellings, the landscape within the monument is one of majesty and magic, so much so that the landscape itself is viewed as sacred by the Navajo.

Canyon de Chelly National Monument explores these aspects of this wondrous monument through words and images. Prepare for your visit, or reinforce what you've already learned from a visit, by picking up a copy. 16 pages.
