The Navajo Reservation
Now the largest Indian reservation in the United States, comprising as it does nearly ten million acres, or nearly fifteen thousand square miles.
The Navajo reservation spans into northern Arizona, northwest New Mexico and southeast Utah.
Being equal in size to the combined areas of Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island.
The home of the Navajo Indians has always been considered one of the most arid and barren portions of the Great American Desert.
The average rainfall in this region is from ten to fourteen inches, and is usually confined to two short seasons.
The valleys and lower levels are destitute of trees, save for the cottonwoods that fringe the banks of the arroyos and running streams, though the mesas.
The mountains are fairly well covered with pinion, cedar, oak, juniper, white pine, and spruce.
The elevation is from four to ten thousand feet above sea level, with an attendant climate unsuited to the luxuriant growth of vegetation.
The yucca, cactus, sage brush, gramma grass, and a few weeds and wild flowers are to be found in the valleys and on the lower plateaus, while much of the country is a barren waste with few running streams or springs and with little else to invite either man or beast.
