About The Lost and Found

Young Navajo woman places her hand on the lamb's back to reassure it of its immediate safety, in spite of the lone howling coyote above them.

Historically Navajo women's responsibility often was to care for the famiy's sheep.

Jerry Lee is especially well regarded for his depiction of campfires.
