"A richly researched and gripping story . . . The warmth and attention to detail that makes the text so engaging is underpinned with scholar's tools a chapter on the 'Stylistic Analysis of the Vessels, ' a genealogy chart, outstanding maps and drawings by James Kramer. . . . Whether you're interest in Southwestern pottery is casual or more informed, Nampeyo and Her Pottery is a book to read for the pleasure of their company--Nampeyo and Barbara Kramer." --The New Mexican"A portrait that is vividly sensitive to the real life and artistry of Nampeyo." --Book News"Nampeyo emerges here as representative of the enduring values and lifeways of a culture and as an icon of that culture's ability to sustain and renew itself in the face of historical, economic, and political change. . . . Those interested in the nature of [her artistic] vision and its achievements will find a wealth of material here. . . . For general readers and scholars alike, the most powerful impression left by the book may well be that of Nampeyo herself--not so much as a personality whose inner life we experience, for written and oral records do not offer us that, but as a fixed yet ever-brightening star in a changing cultural universe." --Native Peoples"Essential for anyone studying Hopi pottery in general and Nampeyo in particular." --Midwest Book Review
