MUHAMMAD Islam’s First Great General By Richard A. Gabriel An examination of Muhammad’s life as a military leader That Muhammad succeeded as a prophet is undeniable; a prominent military historian now suggests that he might not have done so had he not also been a great soldier. Best known as the founder of a major religion, Muhammad was also Islam’s first great general. While there have been numerous accounts of Muhammad the Prophet, this is the first military biography of the man. In Muhammad: Islam’s First Great General, Richard A. Gabriel shows us a warrior never before seen in antiquity—a leader of an all-new religious movement who in a single decade fought eight major battles, led eighteen raids, and planned thirty-eight other military operations. Gabriel’s study portrays Muhammad as a revolutionary who introduced military innovations that transformed armies and warfare throughout the Arab world. Gabriel analyzes the environment in which Muhammad lived and the religion he inspired as they relate to his military achievements. Gabriel explains how Muhammad changed the social composition of Arab armies by replacing traditional ways of fighting with a new command structure. Muhammad’s transformation of Arab warfare enabled his successors to establish the core of the Islamic empire—an accomplishment that, Gabriel argues, would have been militarily impossible without Muhammad’s innovations. Richard A. Gabriel challenges existing scholarship on Muhammad’s place in history and offers a viewpoint not previously attempted.

THREE PLAYS The Indolent Boys, Children of the Sun, and The Moon in Two Windows By N. Scott Momaday Theatrical works celebrating Kiowa history and culture “N. Scott Momaday’s theatrical writing . . . contributes to the stage a unique dramatic voice whose resonance echoes in our very souls.”—M. Z. Ribalow, playwright and artistic director of New River Dramatists Long a leading figure in American literature, N. Scott Momaday is perhaps best known for his Pulitzer Prize–winning House Made of Dawn and his celebration of his Kiowa ancestry, The Way to Rainy Mountain. Momaday has also made his mark in theater through two plays and a screenplay. Published here for the first time, they display his signature talent for interweaving oral and literary traditions. The Indolent Boys recounts the 1891 tragedy of runaways from the Kiowa Boarding School who froze to death while trying to return to their families. The play explores the consequences, for Indian students and their white teachers, of the federal program to “kill the Indian and save the Man.” A joyous counterpoint to this tragedy, Children of the Sun is a short children’s play that explains the people’s relationship to the sun. The Moon in Two Windows, a screenplay set in the early 1900s, centers on the children of defeated Indian tribes, who are forced into assimilation at Carlisle, Pennsylvania, where the U.S. government established the first offreservation boarding school. Belonging with the best of Momaday’s classic writing, these plays are works of a mature craftsman that preserve the mythic and cultural tradition of unique tribal communities in the face of an increasingly homogeneous society.

VOICES FROM THE HEARTLAND Edited by Carolyn Anne Taylor, Emily Dial-Driver, Carole Burrage, and Sally Emmons-Featherston A thought-provoking collection of essays on life and living Voices from the Heartland is a celebration of women’s contributions to Oklahoma’s recent past. It records defining moments in women’s lives—whether surviving the Oklahoma City bombing or surviving abuse—and represents a wide range of professions, lifestyles, and backgrounds to show how extraordinary lives have grown from the seeds of ordinary girlhoods. From former Cherokee principal chief Wilma Mankiller, First Lady Kim Henry, novelist Billie Letts, and prima ballerina Maria Tallchief, to OU basketball coach Sherri Coale, the authors share their personal reflections on finding balance as they look back on defining moments in their lives, mull over what they wish they had learned sooner, and convey the wisdom they’ve unearthed on their journeys thus far. Touching on topics from adultery to left-handedness, from losing children to losing perspective, these essays speak from the heart to reveal what it means to be an American woman today. Readers will meet activists and writers, advocates and artists—some of whom are household names, while others work outside the public eye. Voices from the Heartland speaks to readers all across America and demonstrates that women in Oklahoma represent the heart of us all. Carolyn Anne Taylor is Associate Professor of Political Science at Rogers State University, Claremore, Oklahoma. She previously served eight years in the Oklahoma House of Representatives. Emily Dial-Driver is Professor of English at Rogers State University. Her essays, poems, and short stories have appeared in numerous publications. Carole Burrage, a former federal law clerk, is retired as Assistant Professor of Social and Behavioral Studies at Rogers State University. Sally Emmons-Featherston is Associate Professor of English at Rogers State University. Of Choctaw-Cherokee-Irish descent, she specializes in contemporary Native American literature.

DASCHLE VS. THUNE Anatomy of a High-Plains Senate Race By Jon K. Lauck The story behind the unseating of a Senate majority leader “Jon Lauck’s account of one of the hardest-fought elections in the 2004 campaign should be must reading for Democrats as well as Republicans.”—Michael Barone, Senior Writer, U.S. News & World Report The race between Tom Daschle and John Thune in South Dakota was widely acknowledged as “the other big race of 2004.” Second in prominence only to the presidential race, the Daschle-Thune contest pitted the rival political ideologies that have animated American politics since the 1960s. In a sign of the ongoing strength of political conservatism, Daschle became the first Senate leader in fifty years to lose a re-election bid. Historian Jon K. Lauck, a South Dakotan who was an insider during that heated campaign, now offers a multilayered examination of this hard-fought and symbolically charged race. Blending historical narrative, political analysis, and personal reflection, he offers a close-up view of the issues that divide the nation—a case study of the continuing clash between liberalism and conservatism that has played out for more than a generation in U.S. politics. Daschle vs. Thune moves beyond the nitty-gritty of public policy to deftly show how the recent past continues to shape the ongoing political battles that animate pundits and bloggers. It is a compelling story told by a writer who knows both his home ground and how it fits into the wider U.S. context. Jon K. Lauck is Senior Advisor to U.S. Senator John Thune and author of American Agriculture and the Problem of Monopoly: The Political Economy of Grain Belt Farming, 1953–1980. He resides in Sioux Falls.

BOOKS ON TRIAL Red Scare in the Heartland By Shirley A. Wiegand and Wayne A. Wiegand How civil liberties triumphed over national insecurity Between the two major red scares of the twentieth century, a police raid on a Communist Party bookstore in Oklahoma City marked an important lesson in the history of American freedom. In a raid on the Progressive Bookstore in 1940, local officials seized thousands of books and pamphlets and arrested twenty customers and proprietors. All were detained incommunicado and many were held for months on unreasonably high bail. Four were tried for violating Oklahoma’s “criminal syndicalism” law, and their convictions and ten-year sentences caused a nationwide furor. After protests from labor unions, churches, publishers, academics, librarians, the American Civil Liberties Union, members of the literary world, and prominent individuals ranging from Woody Guthrie to Eleanor Roosevelt, the convictions were overturned on appeal. Shirley A. Wiegand and Wayne A. Wiegand share the compelling story of this important case for the first time. They reveal how state power—with support from local media and businesses—was used to trample individuals’ civil rights during an era in which citizens were gripped by fear of foreign subversion. Richly detailed and colorfully told, Books on Trial is a sobering story of innocent people swept up in the hysteria of their times. It marks a fascinating and unnerving chapter in the history of Oklahoma and of the First Amendment. In today’s climate of shadowy foreign threats—also full of unease about the way government curtails freedom in the name of protecting its citizens—the past speaks to the present. Shirley A. Wiegand is Professor of Law at Marquette University, Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Wayne A. Wiegand is the F. William Summers Professor of Library and Information Studies and Professor of American Studies at Florida State University, Tallahassee, Florida.

VERNE SANKEY America’s First Public Enemy By Timothy W. Bjorkman A fast-paced adventure of a 1930s kidnapper In late January of 1934, as authorities delivered John Dillinger to an Indiana jail, the United States Justice Department announced, for the first time, that the Federal Bureau of Investigation had just captured America’s Public Enemy No. 1. It was not Dillinger the Justice Department was referring to, but an affable railroader turned outlaw, Verne Sankey. Now Timothy W. Bjorkman has written the first full-length biography of this overlooked criminal, relating how a South Dakota family man became a bootlegger, a bank robber, and eventually, a kidnapper whose deeds heralded a nationwide crime spree. In the early days of Prohibition, Sankey, then a locomotive engineer, was drawn to the easy money he could make bootlegging. When crime syndicates monopolized the trade and Prohibition’s end was in sight, he turned to the occasional bank robbery and eventually to a ransom scheme. In tracing the life of Sankey—and his demure wife, Fern—Bjorkman depicts a good-natured man, friendly neighbor, and gentleman rumrunner catering to the banker and broker trade. He also explores Sankey’s motivations, his identification as America’s first Public Enemy, and his ultimate descent into oblivion.

Timothy W. Bjorkman is a judge for the the First Judicial Circuit of his native South Dakota. He, his wife, Carol Kay, and four sons—James, John, Sam, and Seth—live in Canistota.

THE BILLY THE KID READER By Frederick Nolan More than a century’s worth of essential writing on America’s most famous outlaw “Once again Fred Nolan has validated his distinction as the world’s leading authority on Billy the Kid. No one knows more.”—Robert M. Utley, author of Billy the Kid: A Short and Violent Life Despite the countless books and films devoted to him, Billy the Kid remains one of the most elusive figures of the Old West. Now, award-winning western historian Frederick Nolan has scoured the published literature to offer this wellrounded compendium on the life and times of William H. Bonney. The Billy the Kid Reader contains some of the best articles on the Kid—including gems no longer in print. From the first dime novel that appeared shortly after his death to the research of today’s historians, these writings bring Bonney’s life into sharp focus. Nolan highlights two distinct schools of Billy the Kid studies: works of popularizers who tended to exaggerate his historical role, and the findings of grassroots researchers who have reassessed our perceptions of the Kid. Dozens of illustrations enhance the text, illuminating the Kid’s career and notoriety. This collection shows that the life of William H. Bonney is not yet a closed book—far from it. Many versions of his life remain little more than unchallenged tradition. The Billy the Kid Reader puts that lengthy body of work in perspective and will satisfy seasoned Kid aficionados as well as first-time readers eager to learn more about the man and the legend. Frederick Nolan is a leading authority on outlaws and gunfighters of the Old West. His award-winning books include The West of Billy the Kid; The Wild West: History, Myth, and the Making of America; and The Lincoln County War: A Documentary History. He resides in England.

A GREAT DAY TO FIGHT FIRE Mann Gulch, 1949 By Mark Matthews A story of lost youth, broken hearts, and man’s inability to conquer nature Mann Gulch, Montana, 1949. Sixteen men ventured into hell to fight a raging wildfire; only three came out alive. Searing the fire into the nation’s consciousness, Norman Maclean chronicled the Mann Gulch tragedy in his award-winning book Young Men and Fire. Still, the silence of the victims’ families robbed Maclean’s account of an essential personal dimension. Shifting the focus from the fire to the men who fought it, Mark Matthews now provides that perspective. Not until 1999—the fiftieth anniversary of the fire—did people begin to talk openly about Mann Gulch. Matthews has garnered those thoughts to reveal how devastating the fire was to the firefighters’ family members, coworkers, and friends. In retelling the story of Mann Gulch, he draws on the testimony of the three survivors—including never-before-published insights from the last living member of the team—and interviews with former smoke jumpers of that era. The result is a moment-by-moment, heart-stopping re-creation of events.

Matthews’ stirring account renews our respect for one of nature’s primal forces. A heartbreakingly human story, it still haunts a firefighting community—and keeps today’s firefighters forever on guard. Mark Matthews, a writer living in Missoula, Montana, is the author of Smoke Jumping on the Western Fire Line: Conscientious Objectors during World War II. He is a former wildland firefighter for the U.S. Forest Service and former Forestry Technician for the Lolo National Forest.

BABY DOE TABOR The Madwoman in the Cabin By Judy Nolte Temple Unravels the psyche of Colorado’s most adored adulteress The story of Baby Doe Tabor has seduced America for more than a century. Long before her body was found frozen in the Leadville shack where for decades she had guarded the Matchless Mine, Elizabeth McCourt “Baby Doe” Tabor was the stuff of legend. The stunning divorcée married Colorado’s wealthiest mining magnate and became “the Silver Queen of the West.” Horace and Baby Doe mesmerized the world with their wealth and extravagance. Blessed with two daughters and with the Matchless Mine’s earnings of $2,000 a day, they spent seemingly limitless riches. But Baby Doe’s life was also a morality play. Almost overnight, the Tabors’ wealth disappeared when depression struck in 1893. Forced to shovel slag at the mines, Horace died six years later. According to the legend, one daughter left home never to return; the other died horribly. For thirty-five years, Baby Doe, who was considered mad, lived in solitude high in the Colorado Rockies. Baby Doe Tabor left a record of her madness in a set of writings she called her “Dreams and Visions.” These were discovered after her death but never studied in detail—until now. In Baby Doe Tabor: The Madwoman in the Cabin, author Judy Nolte Temple retells Lizzie’s story with greater accuracy than any previous biographer. She unpacks the mythology to uncover Lizzie’s actual experiences as told in her fragmentary writings and correspondence. Undertaking the first close analysis of Lizzie’s writings, Temple reveals a story more heartbreaking than the legend and, for the first time, gives voice to the woman behind the myth. Judy Nolte Temple, Associate Professor of Women’s Studies and English at the University of Arizona, is the author (under the name Judy Nolte Lensink) of “A Secret to Be Burried:” The Diary and Life of Emily Hawley Gillespie, 1858–1888.

VICTORIO Apache Warrior and Chief By Kathleen P. Chamberlain A thoroughgoing portrait of the feared contemporary of Geronimo “Carefully researched and clearly written.”—Roger L. Nichols, author of American Indians in U.S. History A steadfast champion of his people during the wars with encroaching AngloAmericans, the Apache chief Victorio deserves as much attention as his better-known contemporaries Cochise and Geronimo. In presenting the story of this nineteenth-century Warm Springs Apache warrior, Kathleen P. Chamberlain expands our understanding of Victorio’s role in the Apache wars and brings him into the center of events. Although there is little documentation of Victorio’s life outside military records, Chamberlain draws on ethnographic sources to surmise his childhood and adolescence and to depict traditional Warm Springs Apache social, religious, and economic life. Reconstructing Victorio’s life beyond the military conflicts that have since come to define him, she interprets his character and actions not only as whites viewed them but also as the logical outcome of his upbringing and worldview. Chamberlain’s Victorio is a pragmatic leader and a profoundly spiritual man. Caught in the absurdities of post–Civil War Indian policy, Victorio struggled with the glaring disconnect between the U.S. government’s vision for Indians and their own physical, psychological, and spiritual needs.

GALL Lakota War Chief By Robert W. Larson First-ever scholarly biography of the man said to have killed Custer Called the “Fighting Cock of the Sioux” by U.S. soldiers, Hunkpapa warrior Gall was a great Lakota chief who, along with Sitting Bull and Crazy Horse, resisted efforts by the U.S. government to annex the Black Hills. It was Gall, enraged by the slaughter of his family, who led the charge across Medicine Tail Ford to attack Custer’s main forces on the other side of the Little Bighorn. Robert W. Larson now sorts through contrasting views of Gall, to determine the real character of this legendary Sioux. This first-ever scholarly biography also focuses on the actions Gall took during his final years on the reservation, unraveling his last fourteen years to better understand his previous forty. Gall, Sitting Bull’s most able lieutenant, accompanied him into exile in Canada. Once back on the reservation, though, he broke with his chief over Ghost Dance traditionalism and instead supported Indian agent James McLaughlin’s more realistic agenda. Tracing Gall’s evolution from a fearless warrior to a representative of his people, Larson shows that Gall contended with shifting political and military conditions while remaining loyal to the interests of his tribe. Filling many gaps in our understanding of this warrior and his relationship with Sitting Bull, this engaging biography also offers new interpretations of the Little Bighorn that lay to rest the contention that Gall was “Custer’s Conqueror.” Gall: Lakota War Chief broadens our understanding of both the man and his people. Robert W. Larson is retired as Professor of History at the University of Northern Colorado, Greeley. He is the author of numerous articles and books, including Red Cloud: Warrior-Statesman of the Lakota Sioux. The Denver Posse of Westerners honored him in 2006 with its Fred A.

A WORKING MAN’S APOCRYPHA Short Stories By William Luvaas Cutting-edge fiction that breathes life into unlikely characters In these unforgettable stories, William Luvaas depicts the struggles of everyday people facing situations far from the ordinary. Through tales set largely in Southern California’s Inland Empire, Luvaas weaves magic and absurdity around characters caught between apocalypse and heartbreak. Deftly spinning haunting plots, he conveys the joys and misfortunes of folks who confront trauma or loss and find unexpected opportunities for survival. Here is nature run amok: A tornado whirls away a man’s wife and daughter, but they return midway into his ensuing romantic affair. Flood survivors in California’s coastal range build makeshift arks in anticipation of the world’s watery end. Other stories fathom relationships, as a diabetic’s suicide in the title story renews a cycle of unrequited love, or aging twins reconcile with the loss of their childhood intimacy. All come to grips with contemporary problems: poverty, disease, or powerlessness in the face of economic inequality, religious fanaticism, and corporate greed. Whether writing from the point of view of a semiliterate handyman or an elderly woman facing death on a cold night, Luvaas delivers stories, characters, and voices that are the stuff of cutting-edge fiction. A Working Man’s Apocrypha is masterful storytelling that will leave readers breathless. William Luvaas, who teaches creative writing and literature at San Diego State University, is the author of The Seductions of Natalie Bach and Going Under. His short fiction, reviews, and essays have appeared in the American Literary Review, Antioch Review, Cosmopolitan, The Village Voice, Harper’s Weekly, and Glimmer Train.

GEORGE THOMAS Virginian for the Union By Christopher J. Einolf One of the North’s greatest generals—the Rock of Chickamauga “A splendid biography”—James M. McPherson, Pulitzer Prize–winning author of Battle Cry of Freedom Most Southerners in the U.S. Army resigned their commissions to join the Confederacy in 1861. But at least one son of a distinguished, slaveholding Virginia family remained loyal to the Union. George H. Thomas fought for the North and secured key victories at Chickamauga and Nashville. Thomas’s wartime experiences transformed him from a slaveholder to a defender of civil rights. Remembered as the “Rock of Chickamauga,” Thomas became one of the most prominent Union generals and was even considered for overall command of the Union Army in Virginia. Yet he has been eclipsed by such names as Grant, Sherman, and Sheridan. Offering vivid accounts of combat, Einolf depicts the fighting from Thomas’s perspective to allow a unique look at the real experience of decision making on the battlefield. He examines the general’s recurring confrontations with the Union high command to make a strong case for Thomas’s integrity and competence, even as he exposes Thomas’s shortcomings and poor decisions. The result is a more balanced, nuanced picture than has previously been available. Probing Thomas’s personal character, Einolf reveals how a son of the South could oppose the views of friends and family. George Thomas: Virginian for the Union offers a fresh appraisal of an important career and lends new insight into the inner conflicts of the Civil War. Volume 13 in the Campaigns and Commanders series Christopher J. Einolf is the author of The Mercy Factory: Refugees and the American Asylum System.

A NORTHERN CHEYENNE ALBUM Photographs by Thomas B. Marquis Edited by Margot Liberty Commentary by John Woodenlegs Rare photographs document the lives of Cheyenne people during the early reservation years “For anyone interested in seeing a cultural transition chronicled in pictures and narratives, this book is a gold mine.”—Richard E. Littlebear, President of Chief Dull Knife College In 1878 the Northern Cheyennes left what is now Oklahoma, where they had been incarcerated, and began an epic journey back to their homeland. They suffered great losses, but a small group of survivors reached its destination in southeastern Montana in 1879 and eventually won the right to a reservation there. A Northern Cheyenne Album presents a rare series of never-before-published photographs that document the lives of tribal people on the reservation during the early twentieth century—a period of rapid change.

Reservation physician and expert photographer Thomas B. Marquis captured Northern Cheyenne life in numerous images taken from 1926 to 1935. After 1960, former tribal president John Woodenlegs and others interviewed tribal elders and, drawing on tape recordings, composed the photos’ lively captions. Margot Liberty, editor of this volume, has added her own descriptions, filling in details of Northern Cheyenne culture and history from a scholar’s viewpoint. A valuable record of an all-but-forgotten generation, this volume is also an inspiring tribute to the Northern Cheyenne elders whose resilience and adaptability helped ensure the future of their people. Margot Liberty is an anthropologist specializing in American Indian cultures and the American West. She is coauthor (with John Stands in Timber) of the classic work Cheyenne Memories. John Woodenlegs was President of the Northern Cheyenne Tribe from 1955 to 1968 and the founder of Chief Dull Knife Memorial College, Lame Deer, Montana. Thomas B. Marquis was a physician and photographer who lived and worked among the Northern Cheyennes from 1922 until his death in 1935.

CHEROKEE MEDICINE MAN

NATIVE AMERICAN PLACENAMES OF THE UNITED STATES

The Life and Work of a Modern-Day Healer By Robert J. Conley A modern medicine man portrayed through the words of the people he has helped “Fans of Conley, get this book! As always, reading his work is like talking to an old friend.”—Deborah L. Duvall, author of How Medicine Came to the People: A Tale of the Ancient Cherokees Robert J. Conley did not set out to chronicle the life of Cherokee medicine man John Little Bear. Instead, the medicine man came to him. Little Bear asked Conley to write down his story, to reveal to the world “what Indian medicine is really about.” For Little Bear, as for the Cherokee ancestors who brought their traditions over the Trail of Tears to Indian Territory, the medicine is about helping people. Visitors from neighboring states and Mexico come to him, each one seeking help for a different kind of problem. Each seeker’s story is presented here exactly as it was told to Conley. Little Bear has cured problems involving health, relationships, and money by uncovering the source of the problem rather than simply treating the symptoms. Whereas mainstream medicine and counseling have failed his patients, Little Bear’s healing practices have proven beneficial time and again. Robert J. Conley lives with his wife, Evelyn, in Norman, Oklahoma. His poetry, short stories, novels, and nonfiction works have been published in several languages and have received many awards.

The Growth of an Atomic Community By Jon Hunner

A lavishly illustrated look at the life and movie career of the Oklahoma native son

A social history of New Mexico’s “Atomic City” “Will certainly be the standard introduction to New Mexico’s peculiar city for many years to come.” —New Mexico Historical Review

“A marvelous homage to Will Rogers.”—Silents Majority “A well-done piece of scholarship.” —Under Western Skies Among those billions the world over who recognize the name “Will Rogers”and can even quote him, few know that the humorist, political commentator, social critic, and homespun philosopher also starred in dozens of motion pictures—many of them hits—between 1918 and his untimely death in 1935. In fact, Rogers was voted the top box-office draw in 1934, beating out Shirley Temple and Clark Gable. In Will Rogers, Performer, Richard J. Maturi and Mary Buckingham Maturi offer a lively account of Rogers’s formative years and professional career, emphasizing his work in Hollywood. The narrative features Rogers’s own words, lines from his movies, and excerpts from reviews. More than 150 photographs, mostly film stills, are included, as well as a foreword by Will’s son Jim Rogers. Richard J. Maturi and Mary Buckingham Maturi are writers who live and work in the Laramie Range of the Wyoming Rockies. Richard has published several books on investing and personal finance.

Los Alamos, New Mexico, birthplace of the Atomic Age, is the community that revolutionized modern weaponry and science. An “instant city,” created in 1943, Los Alamos quickly grew to accommodate six thousand people—scientists and experts who came to work in the top-secret laboratories, others drawn by jobs in support industries, and the families. How these people, as a community, faced both the fevered rush to create an atomic bomb and the intensity of the subsequent cold-war era is the focus of Jon Hunner’s fascinating narrative history. Much has been written about scientific developments at Los Alamos, but until this book little has been said about the community that fostered them. Using government records and the personal accounts of early residents, Inventing Los Alamos, traces the evolution of the town during its first fifteen years as home to a national laboratory and documents the town’s creation, the lives of the families who lived there, and the impact of this small community on the Atomic Age. Jon Hunner is Associate Professor and Director of the Public History program at New Mexico State University in Las Cruces. He is co-author of Santa Fe: A Historical Walking Tour and Las Cruces: City of Crosses and has published numerous articles about the American Southwest.

CHARLES GOODNIGHT Father of the Texas Panhandle By William T. Hagan Biography of one of the most important cattlemen of the American West “Fresh and valuable . . . a modern classic on the father of the Texas Panhandle.” —David Dary, author of The Santa Fe Trail Charles Goodnight was a pioneer of the early range cattle industry—an opinionated and profane but energetic and well-liked rancher. Goodnight’s story is now re-examined by William T. Hagan in this brief, authoritative account that considers the role of ranching in general—and Goodnight in particular—in the development of the Texas Panhandle. The first major reassessment of his life in seventy years, Charles Goodnight: Father of the Texas Panhandle traces its subject’s life from hardscrabble farmer to cattle baron, giving close attention to lesser-known aspects of his last thirty years. Goodnight came up in the days when much of Texas was free range and open to occupancy by any cattleman brave enough to stake a claim. Hagan shows how Goodnight learned the cattle business and became one of the most famous ranchers of the Southwest. Hagan also presents a clearer picture than ever before of Goodnight’s business arrangements and investments, including the financial setbacks of his later life. As entertaining as it is informative, Hagan’s account takes readers back to the Palo Duro Canyon and the Staked Plains to share insights into the cattleman’s life—riding the range, fighting grass fires, driving cattle to the nearest railhead— the very stuff of cowboy legend and lore. This fascinating biography enriches our understanding of a Texas icon. OF RELATED INTEREST Charles Goodnight Cowman and Plainsman By J.

WOMEN WHO PIONEERED OKLAHOMA Stories from the WPA Narratives Edited by Terri M. Baker and Connie Oliver Henshaw Foreword by M. Susan Savage Interviews of Oklahoma history’s diverse women They came in land runs and on the Trail of Tears, sometimes with families, sometimes alone. But the women who first came to Oklahoma all had trials to face—and stories to tell. In this stirring collection, the women who settled what would become Oklahoma tell their own stories in their own words. From thousands of interviews conducted by the Works Progress Administration in 1936–37 and preserved in the Indian Pioneer Papers of Oklahoma, editors Terri M. Baker and Connie Oliver Henshaw have selected the words of women from a wide range of socioeconomic groups, ethnic backgrounds, and geographical locations to relate the pioneer experience as it was really lived. Elegantly written, skillfully edited,Women Who Pioneered Oklahoma reflects the everyday will and courage to survive of Oklahoma’s founding mothers. It conveys the violence of a frontier culture set in a landscape of stark beauty where death was always just a heartbeat away. A vital part of the state centennial, theirs is the story of real Oklahoma, writ large—and in a distinctly female hand. Terri M. Baker, a citizen of the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma, is Professor of English at Northeastern State University, Tahlequah, Oklahoma, where she focuses on American Indian literature. Connie Oliver Henshaw, who researches women of the nineteenth century, is an Instructor in the Department of Languages and Literature in the College of Liberal Arts at Northeastern State University.

Biography

THE IRISH GENERAL Thomas Francis Meagher By Paul R. Wylie Story of a controversial Irish revolutionary, Civil War general, and Montana governor “An engaging biography”—James M. McPherson, Pulitzer Prize–winning author of Battle Cry of Freedom Irish patriot, Civil War general, frontier governor—Thomas Francis Meagher played key roles in three major historical arenas. Today he is hailed as a hero by some, condemned as a drunkard by others. Paul R. Wylie now offers a definitive biography of this nineteenth-century figure who has long remained an enigma. The Irish General first recalls Meagher’s life from his boyhood and leadership of Young Ireland in the revolution of 1848, to his exile in Tasmania and escape to New York, where he found fame as an orator and as editor of the Irish News. He served in the Civil War—viewing the Union Army as training for a future Irish revolutionary force—and rose to the rank of brigadier general leading the famous Irish Brigade. Wylie traces Meagher’s military career in detail through the Seven Days battles, Antietam, Fredericksburg, and Chancellorsville. Wylie then recounts Meagher’s final years as acting governor of Montana Territory, sorting historical truth from false claims made against him regarding the militia he formed to combat attacking American Indians, and plumbing the mystery surrounding his death. Even as Meagher is lauded in most Irish histories, his statue in front of Montana’s capitol is viewed by some with contempt. The Irish General brings this multitalented but seriously flawed individual to life, offering a balanced picture of the man and a captivating reading experience.

WILLIAM F. CODY’S WYOMING EMPIRE The Buffalo Bill Nobody Knows By Robert E. Bonner The story of Cody’s efforts as a town builder and irrigation entrepreneur Celebrated showman of the Old West, William F. “Buffalo Bill” Cody took on another role unknown to most Americans, that of the western land developer and town promoter. In this captivating study, Robert E. Bonner demonstrates that the skills Cody acquired from decades in show business failed to prepare him for the demanding arena of business and finance. Bonner examines Cody’s efforts as president of the Shoshone Irrigation Company to develop the Big Horn Basin through large-scale irrigation and town development. This meticulously researched account shows us a Buffalo Bill preoccupied with making a buck and not at all shy about using his fame to do it. Cody spent huge sums, bullied partners, patronized state officials, and exercised his charm in pursuit of developing the high plains east of Yellowstone National Park. His efforts helped shape the city of Cody and the Big Horn Basin. With the famous Irma Hotel as a cornerstone, he built the first infrastructure of the CodyYellowstone tourist trade and connected his little Wyoming town with the wealth of the East through personal hospitality and travel. Laced with engaging anecdotes and featuring more than twenty photographs, William F. Cody’s Wyoming Empire is a much needed look at an overly mythologized character. There was more to William F. Cody than the Wild West show— and we cannot construct a full picture of the man without understanding his entrepreneurial activities in Wyoming. Robert E. Bonner is Professor Emeritus of History at Carleton College, Northfield, Minnesota. His numerous articles have appeared in such journals as the Western Historical Quarterly and Montana The Magazine of Western History.

DEADLY DOZEN Forgotten Gunfighters of the Old West, Volume 2 By Robert K. DeArment Overlooked shooters who made their deadly mark on the Old West Think gunfighter, and Wyatt Earp or Billy the Kid may come to mind, but what of Jim Moon? Joel Fowler? Zack Light? A host of other figures helped forge the gunfighter persona, but their stories have been lost to time. In a sequel to his Deadly Dozen, celebrated western historian Robert K. DeArment now offers more biographical portraits of lesser-known gunfighters—men who perhaps weren’t glorified in legend or song, but who were rightfully notorious in their day. DeArment has tracked down stories of gunmen from throughout the West— characters you won’t find in any of today’s western history encyclopedias but whose careers are colorfully described here. Photos of the men and telling quotations from primary sources make these characters come alive. In giving these men their due, DeArment takes readers back to the gunfighter culture spawned in part by the upheavals of the Civil War, to a time when deadly duels were part of the social fabric of frontier towns and the Code of the West was real. His vignettes offer telling insights into conditions on the frontier that created the gunfighters of legend. These overlooked shooters never won national headlines but made their own contributions to the blood and thunder of the Old West: people less than legends, but all the more fascinating because they were real. Readers who enjoyed DeArment’s Deadly Dozen will find this book equally captivating—as gripping as a showdown, twelve times over.

Instead, the war lasted for three grueling years. To achieve final victory, the British government was forced to depend not only on its Regular Army but also on a large volunteer force. This book spotlights Britain’s “citizen army” to show who these volunteers were, why they enlisted, how they were trained—and how they quickly became disillusioned when they found themselves committed not to the supposed glories of conventional battle but instead to a prolonged guerrilla war. In Volunteers on the Veld, Stephen M. Miller focuses on the connection between Britain’s auxiliary forces—volunteers, militia, and yeomanry—and its imperial mission during the late Victorian era, looking especially at why the British war effort came to depend on their performance. Miller examines motivations for enlistment, the use of citizen-soldiers in guerrilla warfare, and the effects of combat on the soldiers themselves, weaving together the sense of national emergency, the influence of popular culture, and images of manhood that propelled so many Britons into the ranks of volunteers. By revisiting one of the most significant guerrilla wars of the modern age—and one of the earliest examples of the use of modern media to promote mobilization for a foreign war—Volunteers on the Veld lends fresh insight into British imperial warfare while suggesting unmistakable parallels between these citizen-soldiers and today’s American volunteers in Iraq. Volume 12 in the Campaigns & Commanders series Stephen M. Miller is Assistant Professor of History at the University of Maine. He is the author of Lord Methuen and the British Army: Failure and Redemption in South Africa.

CHOCTAW LANGUAGE AND CULTURE Chahta Anumpa Volume 2 By Marcia Haag and Henry Willis Stories of Choctaw lives convey lessons in language Building on the foundations laid by the first volume of Choctaw Language and Culture, this follow-up text presents a more advanced linguistic study of Oklahoma Choctaw, accompanied by short stories and anecdotes written by Choctaws in their native language. The book is organized around twelve texts with translations, each followed by a grammar lesson, a vocabulary section that acquaints students with new words, a word-study section, and exercises. The authors present such topics as idioms, ways to say “or,” negative conditionals, and compound tenses. Particularly important is the subject of negation, which permeates Choctaw at all levels, and the concept of definiteness. The authors also demonstrate the many ways a single Choctaw word can be modified to yield subtle differences in meaning. Exercises encourage the student to think about how the language works rather than relying on rote memorization. Volume 2 of Choctaw Language and Culture is designed to help teachers and students alike further their understanding of Choctaw by working with and mastering grammatically complex examples of its use. It marks the first such advanced textbook of Choctaw as well as the first easily available reference grammar for teachers. By including actual voices of Choctaw people describing their own lives, it also represents a unique new repository of Choctaw culture. Contributors include Jay McAlvain, Phillip Carroll Morgan, Grayson Noley, Bill Nowlin, Lois Pugh, Eveline Steele, and Tim Tingle.

THE CHOCTAWS IN OKLAHOMA From Tribe to Nation, 1855–1970 By Clara Sue Kidwell Foreword by Lindsay G. Robertson The story of a people overcoming colonization The road from dispossessed people to successful nation was a long one, but for the Choctaws it has been worth the journey. This book examines how one tribe moved beyond setbacks to establish a powerful modern tribal government. The Choctaws in Oklahoma begins with the Choctaws’ removal from Mississippi to Indian Territory in the 1830s and then traces the history of the tribe’s subsequent efforts to retain and expand its rights and to reassert tribal sovereignty in the late twentieth century. As Kidwell explains, Choctaws adapted to the very structures imposed on them by their colonizers: courts and laws. Tribal politicians quickly learned to use the rhetoric of dependency on the government, but they also demanded justice in the form of fulfillment of their treaty rights, and the Choctaw Nation confronted the government as a legal adversary to achieve its own ends. The Choctaws have adroitly negotiated with the United States and created the Choctaw Nation that exists today. The Choctaws’ story illuminates a key point in contemporary scholarship on the history of American Indians: that they were not passive victims of colonization and did not assimilate quietly into American society. The Choctaws in Oklahoma illustrates one tribe’s remarkable success in asserting its sovereignty and establishing a national identity in the face of seemingly insurmountable legal obstacles. Volume 2 in the American Indian Law and Policy Series Clara Sue Kidwell is Director Emerita of the Native American Studies program and Professor of History at the University of Oklahoma. She is the author of numerous articles and books, including Choctaws and Missionaries in Mississippi, 1818–1918. Lindsay G.

MATILDA COXE STEVENSON Pioneering Anthropologist By Darlis A. Miller Foreword by Louis A. Hieb A woman in a man’s world among the Pueblos of the Southwest The first woman anthropologist to work in the Southwest, Matilda Coxe Stevenson (1849–1915) helped define the contours of anthropological research at the turn of the twentieth century. In this first book-length biography of Stevenson, Darlis A. Miller challenges older interpretations of her subject’s life and work as she traces one woman’s quest for professional recognition in the face of social constraints. Stevenson worked for more than a quarter century with the Bureau of American Ethnology and was the only professional woman to hold a full-time position there. Despite the obstacles posed by gender bias, she earned recognition for her pioneering ethnographies of the Zia and Zuni Indians. Miller also examines Stevenson’s field techniques in the context of the anthropology of her day, as well as the personal traits that contributed to her professional success but caused some colleagues to focus more on her personality than her accomplishments. As Miller shows, Stevenson’s work fostered a better understanding of Pueblo cultures and helped to undermine racial stereotypes. This book gives her due recognition, lending compelling insight into a remarkable career while offering new views of the earliest field studies of Puebloan peoples.

INDIAN CONQUISTADORS Indigenous Allies in the Conquest of Mesoamerica Edited by Laura E. Matthew and Michel R. Oudijk Reassesses the first invasion of the New World The conquest of the New World would hardly have been possible if the invading Spaniards had not allied themselves with the indigenous population. This book takes into account the role of native peoples as active agents in the Conquest through a review of new sources and more careful analysis of known but understudied materials that demonstrate the overwhelming importance of native allies in both conquest and colonial control. In Indian Conquistadors, leading scholars offer the most comprehensive look to date at native participation in the conquest of Mesoamerica. The contributors examine pictorial, archaeological, and documentary evidence spanning three centuries, including little-known eyewitness accounts from both Spanish and native documents, paintings (lienzos) and maps (mapas) from the colonial period, and a new assessment of imperialism in the region before the Spanish arrival.

This new research shows that the Tlaxcalans, the most famous allies of the Spanish, were far from alone. Not only did native lords throughout Mesoamerica supply arms, troops, and tactical guidance, but tens of thousands of warriors— Nahuas, Mixtecs, Zapotecs, Mayas, and others—spread throughout the region to participate with the Spanish in a common cause. By offering a more balanced account of this dramatic period, this book calls into question traditional narratives that emphasize indigenous peoples’ roles as auxiliaries rather than as conquistadors in their own right. Enhanced with twelve maps and more than forty illustrations, Indian Conquistadors opens a vital new line of research and challenges our understanding of this important era. Laura E. Matthew is Assistant Professor of History at Marquette University, Milwaukee. Michel R.

MR. JEFFERSON’S HAMMER William Henry Harrison and the Origins of American Indian Policy By Robert M. Owens How Harrison set the pattern for Indian treaty making Often remembered as the president who died shortly after taking office, William Henry Harrison remains misunderstood by most Americans. Before becoming the ninth president of the United States in 1841, Harrison was instrumental in shaping the early years of westward expansion. Robert M. Owens now explores that era through the lens of Harrison’s career, providing a new synthesis of his role in the political development of Indiana Territory and in shaping Indian policy in the Old Northwest. Owens traces Harrison’s political career as secretary of the Northwest Territory, territorial delegate to Congress, and governor of Indiana Territory, as well as his military leadership and involvement with Indian relations. Thomas Jefferson, who was president during the first decade of the nineteenth century, found in Harrison the ideal agent to carry out his administration’s ruthless campaign to extinguish Indian land titles. More than a study of the man, Mr. Jefferson’s Hammer is a cultural biography of his fellow settlers, telling how this first generation of post-Revolutionary Americans realized their vision of progress and expansionism. It surveys the military, political, and social world of the early Ohio Valley and shows that Harrison’s attitudes and behavior reflected his Virginia background and its eighteenth-century notions as much as his frontier milieu.

THE SEMINOLE FREEDMEN A History By Kevin Mulroy Captures the distinct identity and history of the Seminole maroons Popularly known as “Black Seminoles,” descendents of the Seminole freedmen of Indian Territory are a unique American cultural group. Now Kevin Mulroy examines the long history of these people to show that this label denies them their rightful distinctiveness. To correct misconceptions of the historical relationship between Africans and Seminole Indians, he traces the emergence of Seminoleblack identity and community from their eighteenth-century Florida origins to the present day. Arguing that the Seminole freedmen are neither Seminoles, Africans, nor “black Indians,” Mulroy proposes that they are maroon descendants who inhabit their own racial and cultural category, which he calls “Seminole maroon.” Mulroy plumbs the historical record to show clearly that, although allied with the Seminoles, these maroons formed independent and autonomous communities that dealt with European American society differently than either Indians or African Americans did. Mulroy describes the freedmen’s experiences as runaways from southern plantations, slaves of American Indians, participants in the Seminole Wars, and emigrants to the West. He then recounts their history during the Civil War, Reconstruction, enrollment and allotment under the Dawes Act, and early Oklahoma statehood. He also considers freedmen relations with Seminoles in Oklahoma during the twentieth and early twenty-first centuries. Although freedmen and Seminoles enjoy a partially shared past, this book shows that the freedmen’s history and culture are unique and entirely their own. Volume 2 in the Race and Culture in the American West Series Kevin Mulroy is Associate Executive Director for Research Collections and Services at the University of Southern California and author of Freedom on the Border: The Seminole Maroons in Florida, the Indian Territory, Coahuila, and Texas.

SCOTTISH HIGHLANDERS AND NATIVE AMERICANS Indigenous Education in the Eighteenth-Century Atlantic World By Margaret Connell Szasz Two indigenous cultures encounter Scottish educators in the eighteenth century “A masterful performance and a truly original study.”—David Wallace Adams, author of Education for Extinction: American Indians and the Boarding School Experience, 1875–1928 The Society in Scotland for the Propagation of Christian Knowledge (SSPCK) was founded in 1709 by Scottish Lowlanders for the education of Highlanders: specifically to convert them from the Gaelic language to English, from the Episcopal faith to Presbyterianism, and from latent Jacobitism to loyalty to the crown. In a transatlantic translation of this effort, the “Scottish Society” also established itself in the New World to educate and assimilate Iroquois, Algonquin, and southeastern Native peoples. In this first book-length examination of the SSPCK, Margaret Connell Szasz explores the origins of the Scottish Society’s policies of cultural colonialism and their influence on two disparate frontiers. Drawing intriguing parallels between the treatment of Highland Scots and of Native Americans, she incorporates multiple perspectives on the cultural encounter, juxtaposing the attitudes of Highlanders and Lowlanders, English colonials and Native peoples, while giving voice to the Society’s pupils and graduates, its schoolmasters, and religious leaders.

HEALTH CARE IN MAYA GUATEMALA Confronting Medical Pluralism in a Developing Country Edited by Walter Randolph Adams and John P. Hawkins Creating more enlightened health care for traditional cultures When the traditional meets the modern, nowhere is the impact felt as personally as in the realm of health care. Because practitioners trained in Western science tend to ignore traditional medicine in developing countries, conflict is inevitable. Health Care in Maya Guatemala examines medical systems and institutions in three K’iche’ Maya communities to reveal the conflicts between indigenous medical care and the Guatemalan biomedical system. The editors and contributors show how people in this rapidly modernizing society think about traditional practices—and reveal that health conditions in traditional communities deteriorate over time as long-standing medical practices erode in the face of Western encroachment. The contributors first consider cultural, institutional, and behavioral aspects of health care in Guatemala. Then they look closely at the nature and treatment of spe-cific health issues, such as dentistry and mental health—especially depression. Finally they provide new insight on midwifery, nutrition, ethnomedicine, and other topics. As a whole, the volume proposes steps toward a health care system more accessible to Mayas, incorporating K’iche’ concepts with Western thought. Representing trends seen throughout the world, it shows the necessity of cultural understanding if poor people are to have access to medicine that combines the best of both local tradition and international biomedicine. Although Western medicine continues to ignore the importance of local culture in its attempt to be “scientific,” this book makes a strong argument for giving tradition its due.

ROOTS OF RESISTANCE A History of Land Tenure in New Mexico By Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz Foreword by Simon J. Ortiz An updated edition of a seminal work on the history of land ownership in the Southwest “Underscores the centrality of land questions for this vital and diverse section of the United States—questions that continue to energize public discourse, state politics, and cultural reflections.”—Juan Gómez-Quiñones, author of Roots of Chicano Politics, 1600–1940 In New Mexico—once a Spanish colony, then part of Mexico—Pueblo Indians and descendants of Spanish- and Mexican-era settlers still think of themselves as distinct peoples, each with a dynamic history. At the core of these persistent cultural identities is each group’s historical relationship to the others and to the land, a connection that changed dramatically when the United States wrested control of the region from Mexico in 1848.

THE REIGN OF CLEOPATRA

THE TROJAN WAR

By Stanley M. Burstein An engaging, accessible biography of the legendary Egyptian queen, with source documents Ambitious, intelligent, and desired by powerful men, Cleopatra VII came to power at a time when Roman and Egyptian interests increasingly concerned the same object: Egypt itself. Cleopatra lived and reigned at the center of this complex and persistent power struggle. Her legacy has since lost much of its former political significance, as she has come to symbolize instead the potent force of female sexuality and power. In this engaging and multifaceted account, Stanley M. Burstein displays Cleopatra in the full manifold brilliance of the multiple cultures, countries, and people that surrounded her throughout her compelling life, and in so doing develops a stunning picture of a legendary queen and a deeply historic reign. Designed as an accessible introduction to Cleopatra VII and her time, The Reign of Cleopatra offers readers and researchers an appealing mix of descriptive chapters, biographical sketches, and annotated primary documents. The narrative chapters conclude with a discussion of Cleopatra’s significance as a person, a queen, and a symbol. A glossary and annotated bibliography round out the volume. Stanley M. Burstein is Professor Emeritus of History at California State University, Los Angeles, and coauthor of Ancient Greece: A Brief History.
