The book is the story of Nellie Quamalla.  Gresser was introduced to her story in a book called “Hopi Summer” by Smoki Trustee Carolyn O’Bagy Davis. Quamalla lived in a Hopi Village in 1927 and decided she had to make a basket because she wanted to have a store in her village to make it easier for people to get what they needed, said Gresser.  For more information click here...
