Quarto (approx 11 x 9 inches); 136pp. In modern binding of half calf with blue cloth and gilt lettering on front cover and spine. With 3 chromolithographic plates, wood-engraved and half-tone photo plates, and maps (including a folding map). A detailed and sympathetic report of the Moqui Pueblos and Pueblos regarding their history and present social and economic conditions and the threat posed by "the pressure of people seeking lands, and who are now ready to utilize even the comparatively scanty water privileges of these Indians and deprive them of the fruits of their laborious modes of tillage, which they have practiced for centuries." [Robert Porter, Superintendent of Census.] Illustrations are from a number of noted artists who used cameras as well as pen and pencil to capture the daily existance of these peoples, including narrative and illustrated descriptions of the Snake Dance of the Moqui Pueblo.
