Two sisters embark from Pennsylvania in search of experiences in the Indian Southwest, that was newly opened to intrepid travelers. At Hopi, they meet the day's most famous photographers and bring back rare images of this and other Indian lands that stand today as an America coming to terms with itself through its female adventurers.
