Walk in Beauty, Mr. Hillerman

Tony Hillerman, one of the great mystery writers, died Sunday. He wrote compelling mysteries featuring a people most readers didn't know until they picked up The Blessing Way or Skinwalkers and began reading of Joe Leaphorn and Jim Chee--the Navajo...the Dineh. Hillerman described the land of the Navajo with a poet's eye, and as I read his books, my mind returned to the Land of Room Enough and Time Enough, to vistas that fill the mind and stretch the soul, to a people who have always made me feel welcome. Tony Hillerman lived in beauty, he brought us beauty, and now he walks in beauty.
