Frank Waters wrote this memoir of his experience while doing research for his scholarly work "The Book of the Hopi". "Pumpkin Seed Point" can be seen as a comprehensive footnote to that work, but more importantly, it explores the subtleties and shadows of then present-day Hopi culture. It is an intriguing and enjoyable journey. Many feel that "The Book of the Hopi" is Mr. Water's most important work. While this may be true, I found "Pumpkin Seed Point" to be a much more personal, and in some ways, more authentic work. If you are interested in the Hopi, then this book will open new windows of understanding for you.
