This travel guide was originally published by the Santa Fe Railroad in 1899.
It describes the unparalleled drama of the Snake Dance ceremonial of the Moki (Hopi) Indians of Arizona. The easy to read narrative includes the Snake Legend, day-to-day descriptions of pueblo life in the late 1800s, and the details of the harrowing trip to the Hopi Mesas. This is a rare glimpse from the past of an ancient Hopi ritual that has since all but disappeared.
