Summary
"In the 1920s and 1930s, Elizabeth Compton Hegemann traveled and worked as a 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 of the Navaho language, how to spin and weave, and the intricacies of trade in wool, blankets, and piñon nuts. Her record of these years, especially the 318 photographs presented in this volume, provides a glimpse of Navaho and Hopi life in the years between the wars"--Page [4] of cover
