Item description for Hopi, Revised Edition by Susanne Page...
Overview A lavishly photographed cultural portrait of the Hopi tribe is based on the co-authors' numerous exclusive visits to its land and interviews with its people, in a twenty-fifth anniversary edition that pays tribute to the Hopi spiritual life, history, and traditions. Reprint.
Publishers Description For many centuries the Hopi people have preserved their traditional and very private way of life. But in 1974 Hopi elders, together with the Tribal Council, invited photographer Susanne Page and her husband, author Jake Page, to chronicle the world of the Hopi-which is usually closed to outsiders, and particularly to photographers. Since that unprecedented invitation, the pages have visited the Hopi land and people dozens of times and produced this beautifully illustrated and written book in 1982. Hailed as a masterpiece when first published, Hopi remains one 25 years later. It plays a powerful, respectful tribute to the spiritual life, the past and the present, the land, and the culture of the Hopi people.

Reviews - What do customers think about Hopi, Revised Edition?
did not ever receive the book Sep 22, 2005
I ordered it and was emailed it was not available.
Hopi by Jake Page Jul 4, 2005
Outstanding book! GREAT pictures that probably could not be duplicated today, as the Hopi gave remarkable access to the Pages for this book. The Pages have not abused that trust.
An intimate portrait... Feb 28, 2003
I have Hopi in laws and adoptive family members whose pictures appear in this loving--and accurate--portrayal of a world into which I was honored to be invited. I lived on the reservation itself for 8 years, and continue to be a family member and trusted friend. But having moved away, whenever I need to be reminded of what a rich and wondrous world in which my Hopi relations still reside...this book brings it all back in beautiful photos and delightful accounts of village life. And, as I recall, it was one of the first books of its kind to be openly "endorsed" by many of the Hopi locals in their own art galleries on the mesas. They were very proud of this book!
A masterpiece! Aug 17, 2002
Being someone who knows many traditional Hopi families and visits often, I find this a very accurate account of America's most traditional Native tribe. Although much of their culture is private, Susanne and Jake have done a great job in depicting the social apsect of Hopi culture. The Hopi people are a joy to know. ...
