About this title


In the 1920s and 1930s, Elizabeth Compton Hegemann traveled and worked as an Indian trader in remote areas of Arizona. She entertained numerous celebrities in spite of the necessity of bringing supplies from Flagstaff, a drive of several hours over mostly nonexistent dirt roads. She collected rare southwestern books, learned the Navaho language, how to spin and weave, and the intricacies of trade in wool, blankets, and pinon nuts. Her record of these years, especially the 318 photographs presented in this volume, provides a firsthand glimpse of Navaho and Hopi life in the years between World Wars I and II.

From the Inside Flap:

A collection of photographs and first-hand observations of life among the Navaho and Hopi in the early 20th century. "A most valuable historical resource."-American Indian Quarterly
