Broken pattern: sunlight & shadows of Hopi history
-- Sunlight and Shadows of Hopi History, by Vada Carlson, turns historical facts into an absorbing story of passion, beauty, and tragedy. The ancient, never changing pattern of Hopi tradition and environment is revealed through the central characters, Sevansi and Hohtski. The intrusion of the Spaniards completely disrupted and changed forever the orderly, genteel life of the Hopi.
