Earth Fire: A Hopi Legend of the Sunset Crater Eruption

 

“What a treasure! This unusual book plunges you into the mythology, geology, archaeology and even the linguistics of the eerie landscape of Sunset Crater ... [ The storyteller’s] detailed story, rich in magic, passion, vengeance and tragedy, is published side-by-side in English and in Hopi so that the reader can actually participate in the feeling of the translation. This also gives an unquestionable sense of authenticity. ... Earth Fire will not only make a visit to Sunset Crater a much more exciting experience, it is likely to create a new respect for Hopi culture.” --- Lois Stalvey, Red Rock News Sedona.
