From the Book:

Presented here are one hundred classic-era (1880s-1940s) Hopi and Zuni carved dolls from private and public collections that have rarely, if ever, been put on exhibition and that collectively form a profound and powerful assembly of the very finest examples from the classic period in Kachina carving. Andrea Portago has gracefully photographed these rare figures using available light so as not to distort their colors and to reveal their movement and drama, passion and personality. Historian Barton Wright has served as project consultant and has organized and categorized the kachinas and contributed the text.

Each section begins with landscape photographs taken by Portago of the area of Zuni or Hopi that, implicitly, relates to the group of figures that follow: warriors, water serpents, ogres, clowns, natural phenomena. The essay masterfully elucidates Pueblo culture and cosmology and the systems and perceptions by which Pueblo People interact with their perceived universe.
