Item description for Hopi Summer: Letters from Ethel to Maud by Carolyn O'Bagy Davis...
The true story of a special cross-cultural friendship.
In 1927 Maud Melville, a wealthy New Englander, and Ethel Muchvo, a Hopi potter, struck up a remarkable friendship. Using diaries, letters, and photographs of Ethel and Maud, biographer and historian Carolyn O'Bagy Davis delves into the touching relationship that blossomed between two very different women over many years of triumphs and sorrows. The story of Ethel and Maud also documents a bygone time in Native American history, a "Hopi summer" before wrenching change came to the traditional Pueblo world of the Hopi. 60 b/w photos.
