Beyond the American Pale The Irish in the West, 1845–1910 By David M. Emmons Convention has it that Irish immigrants in the nineteenth century confined themselves mainly to industrial cities of the East and Midwest. The truth is that Irish Catholics went everywhere in America and often had as much of a presence in the West as in the East. In Beyond the American Pale, David M. Emmons examines this multifaceted experience of westering Irish and, in doing so, offers a fresh and discerning account of America’s westward expansion. “Irish in the West” is not a historical contradiction, but it is—and was—a historical problem. Irish Catholics were not supposed to be in the West—that was where Protestant Americans went to reinvent themselves. For many of the same reasons that the spread of southern slavery was thought to profane the West, a Catholic presence there was thought to contradict it—to contradict America’s Protestant individualism and freedom. The Catholic Irish were condemned as the clannish, backward remnants of an old cultural world that Americans self-consciously sought to leave behind. The sons and daughters of Erin were not assimilated, and because they were not assimilable, they should be kept beyond the American pale. As Emmons amply demonstrates, however, western reality was far more complicated. Irish Catholicism may have outraged Protestant-inspired American republicanism, but Irish Catholics were a necessary component of America’s equally Protestantinspired foray into industrial capitalism. They were also necessary to the successive conquests of the “frontier,” wherever it might be found. It was the Irish who helped build the railroads, dig the hard rocks, man the army posts, and do the other arduous, dangerous, and unattractive toiling required by an industrializing society. With vigor and panache, Emmons describes how the West was not so much won as continually contested and reshaped. He probes the self-fulfilling mythology of the American West, along with the far different mythology of the Irish pioneers. The product of three decades of research and thought, Beyond the American Pale is a masterful yet accessible recasting of American history, the culminating work of a singular thinker willing to take a wholly new perspective on the past. David M. Emmons is Professor Emeritus of History at the University of Montana, Missoula, and the author of The Butte Irish: Class and Ethnicity in an American Mining Town, 1875–1925.

A stark portrayal of homesteading and family hardship

Bound Like Grass A Memoir from the Western High Plains By Ruth McLaughlin Foreword by Dee Garceau-Hagen At the start of this haunting memoir, Ruth McLaughlin returns to the site of her childhood home in rural eastern Montana. In place of her family’s house, she finds only rubble and a blackened chimney. A fire has taken the old farmstead and with it ninety-seven years of hard-luck memories. Amidst the ruins, a lone tree survives, reminding her of her family’s stubborn will to survive despite hardships that included droughts, hunger, and mental illness.

Bound Like Grass is McLaughlin’s account of her own—and her family’s—struggle to survive on their isolated wheat and cattle farm. With acute observation, she explores her roots as a descendant of Swedish American grandparents who settled in Montana at the turn of the twentieth century with high ambitions, and of parents who barely managed to eke out a living on their own neighboring farm. In unvarnished prose, McLaughlin reveals the costs of homesteading on such unforgiving land, including emotional impoverishment and a necessary thrift bordering on deprivation. Yet in this bleak world, poverty also inspired ingenuity. Ruth learned to self-administer a fashionable razor haircut, ignoring slashes to her hands; her brother taught himself to repair junk cars until at last he built one to carry him far away. Ruth also longs for a richer, brighter life, but when she finally departs, she finds herself an alien in a modern world of relative abundance. While leaving behind a life of hardship and hard luck, she remains bound—like the long, intertwining roots of prairie grass—to the land and to the memories that tie her to it. Ruth McLaughlin lives in Great Falls, Montana, where she teaches literacy and writing. Her stories and essays have appeared in magazines and anthologies, including Best American Short Stories. Dee Garceau-Hagen is the editor of Portraits of Women in the American West.

Oklahoma Hiking Trails By Kent F. Frates and Larry Floyd Photographs and maps by Larry Floyd Oklahoma is well known as prime hunting and fishing territory, but red-dirt country also offers many opportunities for hiking, running, and off-road biking.

It includes such familiar sites as the Ouachita National Forest and the Wichita Mountains as well as lesser-known gems such as Black Mesa and the Oxley Nature Center.

An extravagantly illustrated tribute to a great western tradition

Pendleton Round-Up at 100 Oregon’s Legendary Rodeo By Michael Bales and Ann Terry Hill “If there is a sanctified place in all of rodeo, the arena at Pendleton has to be it.” —W. K. Stratton, Chasing the Rodeo

distributed for east oregonian publishing company

Every September since 1910, the Pendleton Round-Up has drawn thousands of rodeo fans to a small town in eastern Oregon. For seven days, the crowds in Pendleton thrill to contests that range from bull riding and bronc busting to barrel racing and bareback Indian relays. This extravagantly illustrated book commemorates the centennial of the Round-Up and captures its enduring appeal in Oregon, the Pacific Northwest, and the world of rodeo. As highlighted in these pages, the Pendleton Round-Up has many singular features. First, there is its famous “bucking horse” logo and its signature slogan, “Let ’er Buck.” Then there are its unique long wooden chutes and hard grass turf. And from the very beginning, American Indians have been as much a part of the Round-Up scene as the cowboys and roughstock. In the rodeo’s Native American Village, Indians camp in traditional tipis and celebrate their long-standing cultural traditions. Beautifully designed, this book features a breadth of color and black-and-white photographs—more than 900—showcasing the riders, the drama, and the special atmosphere that is Pendleton. Michael Bales has been a newspaper writer, reporter, and editor for more than twentyfive years, most recently for the Portland Oregonian. Ann Terry Hill, a writer who contributes to American Cowboy, True West, and Cowboys & Indians, comes from a pioneer Round-Up family. She is a former Round-Up princess and queen.

Each entry provides information on the history, location, demographics, and cultural traditions of the particular tribe. Among the new features offered here are an expanded selection of photographs, updated reading lists, and a revised pronunciation guide.

A captivating story from Oklahoma’s radical past

The Green Corn Rebellion A Novel by William Cunningham Introduction by Nigel Anthony Sellars These days, rural Oklahoma is the last place anybody would look for leftist revolutionaries, but in 1917 the area exploded into full-blown insurrection. The state’s tenant farmers, many of whom were Socialist Party members, viewed the Great War in Europe as a conflict that benefited only the rich. When the federal government enacted a draft, an uprising in eastern Oklahoma saw local townspeople skirmishing with rebellious farmers, including whites, blacks, and American Indians. More than 250 men were arrested—some sentenced for up to ten years’ imprisonment.

This is the backdrop of William Cunningham’s powerful novel The Green Corn Rebellion. First published in 1935, it tells the story of Jim Tetley, who wants simply to be a good farmer—if the banks will only let him. As Jim copes with poverty, family rivalries, and community tensions, he must also weigh the need to respond to the call for armed rebellion. Although the insurrection itself succeeded only in undermining the socialist movement and fueling the Red Scare of the 1920s, Cunningham’s incendiary writing has been compared to that of Erskine Caldwell. A uniquely American story with roots set deep in Oklahoma soil, The Green Corn Rebellion will attract all readers interested in the state’s tumultuous history and in populist causes. William Cunningham (1901–67) grew up in Watonga, Oklahoma. A journalist, college teacher, and novelist, he was the first director of the Oklahoma Writers Project, part of the WPA Federal Writers Project. Nigel Anthony Sellars is Associate Professor of History at Christopher Newport University, Newport News, Virginia, and author of Oil, Wheat, and Wobblies: The Industrial Workers of the World in Oklahoma.

Kids of the Black Hole Punk Rock in Postsuburban California By Dewar MacLeod Los Angeles rock generally conjures memories of surf music, The Doors, or Laurel Canyon folkies. But punk? L.A.’s punk scene, while not as notorious as that of New York City, emerged full-throated in 1977 and boasted bands like The Germs, X, and Black Flag. This book explores how, in the land of the Beach Boys, punk rock took hold. As a teenager, Dewar MacLeod witnessed firsthand the emergence of the punk subculture in Southern California. As a scholar, he here reveals the origins of an as-yet-uncharted revolution. Having combed countless fanzines and interviewed key participants, he shows how a marginal scene became a “mass subculture” that democratized performance art, and he captures the excitement and creativity of a neglected episode in rock history. Kids of the Black Hole tells how L.A. punk developed, fueled by youth unemployment and alienation, social conservatism, and the spare landscape of suburban sprawl communities; how it responded to the wider cultural influences of Southern California life, from freeways to architecture to getting high; and how L.A. punks borrowed from their New York and London forebears to create their own distinctive subculture. Along the way, MacLeod not only teases out the differences between the New York and L.A. scenes but also distinguishes between local styles, from Hollywood’s avantgarde to Orange County’s hardcore. With an intimate knowledge of bands, venues, and zines, MacLeod cuts to the heart of L.A. punk as no one has before. Told in lively prose that will satisfy fans, Kids of the Black Hole will also enlighten historians of American suburbia and of youth and popular culture. Dewar MacLeod is Associate Professor of History at William Paterson University in Wayne, New Jersey.

The human aspects of the famed explorer, in a revised and expanded biography

The Character of Meriwether Lewis Explorer in the Wilderness By Clay S. Jenkinson Meriwether Lewis commanded the most important exploration mission in the early history of the United States. Clay S. Jenkinson takes a fresh look at Lewis, not to offer a paper cutout hero but to describe and explain a hyperserious young man of great complexity who found the wilderness of Upper Louisiana as exacting as it was exhilarating.

Jenkinson sees Lewis as a troubled soul before he left St. Charles, Missouri, in May 1804. His experiences in lands “upon which the foot of civilized man had never trodden” further fractured his sense of himself. His hiring William Clark as his “partner in discovery” was, Jenkinson shows, the most intelligent decision he ever made. When Clark was nearby, Lewis’s leadership was stable and productive. When Clark was absent and thus unable to provide a calming influence on his mercurial friend, Lewis tended to get into trouble. Jenkinson argues that if Clark had been with Lewis on the Natchez Trace, the governor of Upper Louisiana would not have killed himself. Jenkinson sees Lewis’s 1809 suicide not as an inexplicable mystery, but the culmination of a series of pressures that extend back to the expedition and perhaps even earlier. The Character of Meriwether Lewis: Explorer in the Wilderness is a revision of an earlier book, greatly expanded with new scholarship and insights gained through Jenkinson’s extensive participation in the Lewis and Clark Expedition Bicentennial. Jenkinson discusses Lewis’s sense of humor, his oft-stated fear that the expedition he was leading might collapse, his self-conscious learnedness, and his inability to re-enter “polite society” after his return. The book attempts to reconstruct from Lewis’s journal entries and letters his rich, troubled personality and his aspirations to heroism. When the American mythology surrounding him is removed and Lewis is allowed to reveal himself, he emerges as a fuller, more human, and endlessly fascinating explorer. Clay S. Jenkinson, well known for his historical portrayals of Thomas Jefferson and Meriwether Lewis, is the editor of A Vast and Open Plain: The Writings of the Lewis and Clark Expedition in North Dakota, 1804–1806 and author of Becoming Jefferson’s People: Re-inventing the American Republic in the Twenty-first Century.

The dramatic story of the U.S. Army’s first major encounter with urban warfare

A Perfect Gibraltar The Battle for Monterrey, Mexico, 1846 By Christopher D. Dishman For three days in the fall of 1846, U.S. and Mexican soldiers fought fiercely in the picturesque city of Monterrey, turning the northern Mexican town, known for its towering mountains and luxurious gardens, into one of the nineteenth century’s most gruesome battlefields. Led by Brigadier General Zachary Taylor, graduates of the U.S. Military Academy encountered a city almost perfectly protected by mountains, a river, and a vast plain. Monterrey’s ideal defensive position inspired more than one U.S. soldier to call the city “a perfect Gibraltar.” The first day of fighting was deadly for the Americans, especially the newly graduated West Point cadets. But they soon adjusted their tactics and began fighting building to building.

Chris D. Dishman conveys in a vivid narrative the intensity and drama of the Battle of Monterrey, which marked the first time U.S. troops engaged in prolonged urban combat. Future Civil War generals and West Point graduates fought desperately alongside rough Texan, Mississippian, and Tennessean volunteers. General Taylor engineered one of the army’s first wars of maneuver at Monterrey by sending the bulk of his troops against the weakest part of the city, and embedded press reporters wrote eyewitness accounts of the action for readers back in the States. Dishman interweaves descriptions of troop maneuvers and clashes between units using pistols and rifles with accounts of hand-to-hand combat involving edged weapons, stones, clubs, and bare hands. He brings regular soldiers and citizen volunteers to life in personal vignettes that draw on firsthand accounts from letters, diaries, and reports written by men on both sides. An epilogue carries the narrative thread to the conclusion of the war. Dishman has canvassed a wide range of Mexican and American sources and walked Monterrey’s streets and battlefields. Accompanied by maps and period illustrations, this skillfully written history will interest scholars, history enthusiasts, and everyone who enjoys a true war story well told. Chris D. Dishman is Chief of the Border Security Branch of the Department of Homeland Security’s Office of Intelligence and Analysis.

The North American Journals of Prince Maximilian of Wied, Volume 2 April–September 1833 Edited by Stephen S. Witte and Marsha V. Gallagher Translated by William J. Orr, Paul Schach, and Dieter Karch Foreword by J. Brooks Joyner • Introduction by Marsha V. Gallagher Few historical chronicles are as informative and eloquent as the journal written by Prince Maximilian of Wied as a record of his journey into the North American interior in 1833, following the route Lewis and Clark had taken almost thirty years earlier. Maximilian’s memorable descriptions of topography, Native peoples, and natural history were further brought to life through the now-familiar watercolors and sketches of Karl Bodmer, the young Swiss artist who accompanied him. The first of the three volumes of the North American Journals recounts the prince’s journey from Europe to St. Louis—then the edge of the frontier. Volume II vividly narrates his experiences on the upper Missouri and offers an unparalleled view of the region and the peoples native to it. In these pages, we accompany Maximilian as he travels far up the Missouri River to Fort McKenzie, a trading post some 2,500 river miles from St. Louis near what is now Fort Benton, Montana. The handsome, oversize volume not only reproduces this historic document but also features every one of Maximilian’s illustrations—more than 200 in all, including nearly 50 in color—from the original journal now housed at Joslyn Art Museum in Omaha, Nebraska. Maximilian recorded detailed observations of flora, fauna, geology, and climate. From his unique, scientifically trained perspective, he also undertook a serious field study of the cultures and languages of the central and northern Great Plains Indians he encountered. His journal contains important, firsthand descriptions of tribal social customs, religious rituals, material culture, and art, as well as an account of Native interactions with Euro-Americans engaged in the then-burgeoning fur trade. Prince Maximilian Alexander Philipp (1782–1867), explorer, naturalist, and ethnologist from the city of Neuwied, Germany, first won acclaim for his expedition to Brazil in 1815–17. Stephen S. Witte is Editor for the Maximilian Journals Project of the Margre H. Durham Center for Western Studies, Joslyn Art Museum. Marsha V. Gallagher is Associate Editor and Project Director. William J.

Levy In 1967, George Henderson, the son of uneducated Alabama sharecroppers, accepted a full-time professorship at the University of Oklahoma, despite his mentor’s warning to avoid the “redneck school in a backward state.” Henderson became the university’s third African American professor, a hire that seemed to suggest the dissolving of racial divides. However, when real estate agents in the university town of Norman denied the Henderson family their first three choices of homes, the sociologist and educator realized he still faced some formidable challenges.

In this stirring memoir, Henderson recounts his formative years at the University of Oklahoma, during the late 1960s and early 1970s. He describes in graphic detail the obstacles that he and other African Americans faced within the university community, a place of “white privilege, black separatism, and campus-wide indifference to bigotry.” As an adviser and mentor to young black students who wanted to do something about these conditions, Henderson found himself at the forefront of collective efforts to improve race relations at the university. Henderson is quick to acknowledge that he and his fellow activists did not abolish all vestiges of racial oppression. But they set in motion a host of institutional changes that continue to this day. In Henderson’s words, “we were ordinary people who sometimes did extraordinary things.” Capturing what was perhaps the most tumultuous era in the history of American higher education, Race and the University includes valuable recollections of former student activists who helped transform the University of Oklahoma into one of the nation’s most diverse college campuses. George Henderson is the Sylvan N. Goldman Professor Emeritus, David Ross Boyd Professor Emeritus, and Regents’ Professor Emeritus of Human Relations, Education, and Sociology at the University of Oklahoma, where he founded the Human Relations Program and served as Dean of the College of Liberal Studies.

America’s Folklorist B. A. Botkin and American Culture Edited by Lawrence Rodgers and Jerrold Hirsch Folklorist, writer, editor, regionalist, cultural activist—Benjamin Albert Botkin (1901– 1975) was an American intellectual who made a mark on the twentieth century, even though most people may be unaware of it. This book, the first to reevaluate the legacy of Botkin in the history of American culture, celebrates his centenary through a collection of writings that assess his influence on scholarship and the American scene. Through his work with the Federal Writers’ Project during the New Deal, the Writers’ Unit of the Library of Congress Project, and the Archive of American Folksong, Botkin did more to collect and disseminate the nation’s folk-cultural heritage than any other individual in the twentieth century. This volume focuses on Botkin’s eclectic but interrelated concerns, work, and vision and offers a detailed sense of his life, milieu, influences, and long-term contributions. Just as Botkin boldly cut across the boundaries between high and low, popular and folk, this book brings together reflections that range from the historical to the philosophical to the disarmingly personal. One group of articles looks at his career and includes the first extended analysis of Botkin’s poetry; another probes the fruitful relationships Botkin had with leading musicologists, composers, poets, and intellectuals of his day. This is also the first book to bring together a collection of Botkin’s best-known writings, giving readers an opportunity to appreciate his wideranging mind and clear, often memorable prose. For Botkin, the blurring of art and science, literature and folklore was not just a philosophy but a way of life. This book reflects that life and invites fans and those new to Botkin to appraise his lasting contributions. Lawrence Rodgers, Dean of the College of Liberal Arts, Oregon State University, Corvallis, is author of Canaan Bound: The African-American Great Migration Novel. Jerrold Hirsch is Professor of History at Truman State University, Kirksville, Missouri, and author of Portrait of America: A Cultural History of the Federal Writers’ Project.

The forgotten—and dramatic—story of two sharpshooting performers

A Pair of Shootists The Wild West Story of S. F. Cody and Maud Lee By Jerry Kuntz In 1888, Samuel F. Cody, a twenty-one-year-old horse wrangler, met Maud Lee, a sixteen-year-old aspiring circus performer, while touring with the Wild West show cast of Adam Forepaugh’s Circus. A quick rapport developed between the girl from Norristown, Pennsylvania, and the cowboy who dazzled audiences with his good looks and fancy pistol shooting. A Pair of Shootists is the exuberant and sometimes heartbreaking story of the elusive S. F. Cody and his first wife, Maud Lee. Recounting their many dramatic exploits, this biography also overturns the frequently romanticized view of Wild West shows.

Living the erratic lives of touring performers, S. F. Cody—who changed his name to capitalize on his resemblance to William F. “Buffalo Bill” Cody—and Maud Lee first appeared together in vaudeville halls and dime museums. Setbacks in the United States made Cody and Lee eager to try their luck abroad, so they traveled to Great Britain, where they played music halls and acted in burlesques on roller-skates and in extravagant arena exhibitions. When the two performers eventually parted ways, author Jerry Kuntz masterfully splits their stories into two. From there, he follows their individual ups and downs, including Cody’s soaring career in pioneer aeronautics and Lee’s decline into mental illness and addiction. In an ironic twist, Maud’s professional life ended amidst a vast misunderstanding that brought her into conflict with the woman she had been emulating her entire career: Annie Oakley. While other biographies focus mainly on Cody’s contribution to aviation, Kuntz uses sources previously unavailable to scholars to paint a more complete picture of Cody’s early years and to recover the forgotten—and ultimately tragic—story of Maud Lee.

Bandido The Life and Times of Tiburcio Vasquez By John Boessenecker Tiburcio Vasquez is, next to Joaquin Murrieta, America’s most infamous Hispanic bandit. After he was hanged as a murderer in 1875, the Chicago Tribune called him “the most noted desperado of modern times.” Yet questions about him still linger. Why did he become a bandido? Why did so many Hispanics protect him and his band? Was he a common thief and heartless killer who got what he deserved, or was he a Mexican American Robin Hood who suffered at the hands of a racist government? In this engrossing biography, John Boessenecker provides definitive answers. Bandido pulls back the curtain on a life story shrouded in myth—a myth created by Vasquez himself and abetted by writers who saw a tale ripe for embellishment. Boessenecker traces his subject’s life from his childhood in the seaside adobe village of Monterey, to his years as a young outlaw engaged in horse rustling and robbery. Two terms in San Quentin failed to tame Vasquez, and he instigated four bloody prison breaks that left twenty convicts dead. After his final release from prison, he led bandit raids throughout Central and Southern California. His dalliances with women were legion, and the last one led to his capture in the Hollywood Hills and his death on the gallows at the age of thirty-nine.

From dusty court records, forgotten memoirs, and moldering newspaper archives, Boessenecker draws a story of violence, banditry, and retribution on the early California frontier that is as accurate as it is colorful. Enhanced by numerous photographs— many published here for the first time—Bandido also addresses important issues of racism and social justice that remain relevant to this day. John Boessenecker, a San Francisco–based attorney, is the author of several books on crime and law enforcement in the Old West, including Badge and Buckshot: Lawlessness in Old California and Lawman: The Life and Times of Harry Morse, 1835–1912.

Portrays the real woman behind the ranching stories

Open Range The Life of Agnes Morley Cleaveland By Darlis A. Miller Agnes Morley Cleaveland found lasting fame after publishing her memoir, No Life for a Lady, in 1941. Her account of growing up on a cattle ranch in west-central New Mexico captivated readers from coast to coast, and it remains in print to this day. In her book, Cleaveland memorably portrayed herself and other ranchwomen as capable workers and independent thinkers. Her life, however, was not limited to the ranch. In Open Range, Darlis A. Miller expands our understanding of Cleaveland’s significance, showing how a young girl who was a fearless risk-taker grew up to be a prolific author and well-known social activist.

Following a hardscrabble childhood in remote regions of northern and central New Mexico, and then many years of rigorous education, Agnes Morley married Newton Cleaveland in 1899. The couple took up primary residence in Berkeley, California, where Agnes lived another kind of life as clubwoman and activist. Yet Agnes’s ranch in the Datil Mountains always drew her back to New Mexico and provided the raw material for her writing. Seen as a whole, Cleaveland’s life story spans the years from territorial New Mexico to the Cold War, includes the raising of her four children and interactions with a wide range of national and regional characters, and provides insight into such aspects of western culture as railroads, cattle, and tourism. Her biography is a case study in the roles that wealthy and well-educated women played during the first half of the twentieth century in both domestic and political spheres and will intrigue anyone familiar with the writings of this multifaceted woman.

Dreaming with the Ancestors Black Seminole Women in Texas and Mexico By Shirley Boteler Mock Indian freedmen and their descendants have garnered much public and scholarly attention, but women’s roles have largely been absent from that discussion. Now a scholar who gained an insider’s perspective into the Black Seminole community in Texas and Mexico offers a rare and vivid picture of these women and their contributions. In Dreaming with the Ancestors, Shirley Boteler Mock explores the role that Black Seminole women have played in shaping and perpetuating a culture born of African roots and shaped by southeastern Native American and Mexican influences. Mock reveals a unique maroon culture, forged from an eclectic mixture of religious beliefs and social practices. At its core is an amalgam of African-derived traditions kept alive by women. The author interweaves documentary research with extensive interviews she conducted with leading Black Seminole women to uncover their remarkable history. She tells how these women nourished their families and held fast to their Afro-Seminole language—even as they fled slavery, endured relocation, and eventually sought new lives in new lands. Of key importance were the “warrior women”—keepers of dreams and visions that bring to life age-old African customs.

A history of the Pawnee Scouts, from their perspective

War Part y in Blue Pawnee Scouts in the U.S. Army By Mark van de Logt Foreword by Walter R. Echo-Hawk Between 1864 and 1877, during the height of the Plains Indian wars, Pawnee Indian scouts rendered invaluable service to the United States Army. They led missions deep into contested territory, tracked resisting bands, spearheaded attacks against enemy camps, and on more than one occasion saved American troops from disaster on the field of battle. In War Party in Blue, Mark van de Logt tells the story of the Pawnee scouts from their perspective, detailing the battles in which they served and recounting hitherto neglected episodes.

Employing military records, archival sources, and contemporary interviews with current Pawnee tribal members—some of them descendants of the scouts—Van de Logt presents the Pawnee scouts as central players in some of the army’s most notable campaigns. He argues that military service allowed the Pawnees to fight their tribal enemies with weapons furnished by the United States as well as to resist pressures from the federal government to assimilate them into white society. According to the author, it was the tribe’s martial traditions, deeply embedded in their culture, that made them successful and allowed them to retain these time-honored traditions. The Pawnee style of warfare, based on stealth and surprise, was so effective that the scouts’ commanding officers did little to discourage their methods. Although the scouts proudly wore the blue uniform of the U.S. Cavalry, they never ceased to be Pawnees. The Pawnee Battalion was truly a war party in blue. Mark van de Logt is Assistant Professor of History at Benedictine College, Atchison, Kansas. Walter R. Echo-Hawk, formerly an attorney for the Native American Rights Fund, currently practices law in Oklahoma City. He is a member of the Pawnee Nation.

From Cochise to Geronimo The Chiricahua Apaches, 1874–1886 By Edwin R. Sweeney “Sweeney’s scholarship could not be more sound.”—Robert M. Utley, author of The Lance and the Shield: The Life and Times of Sitting Bull In the decade after the death of their revered chief Cochise in 1874, the Chiricahua Apaches struggled to survive as a people and their relations with the U.S. government further deteriorated. In From Cochise to Geronimo, Edwin R. Sweeney builds on his previous biographies of Chiricahua leaders Cochise and Mangas Coloradas to offer a definitive history of the turbulent period between Cochise’s death and Geronimo’s surrender in 1886. Sweeney shows that the cataclysmic events of the 1870s and 1880s stemmed in part from seeds of distrust sown by the American military in 1861 and 1863. In 1876 and 1877, the U.S. government proposed moving the Chiricahuas from their ancestral homelands in New Mexico and Arizona to the San Carlos Reservation. Some made the move, but most refused to go or soon fled the reviled new reservation, viewing the government’s concentration policy as continued U.S. perfidy. Bands under the leadership of Victorio and Geronimo went south into the Sierra Madre of Mexico, a redoubt from which they conducted bloody raids on American soil.

Tells how one American Indian tribe survived despite overwhelming challenges

Getting Good Crops Economic and Diplomatic Survival Strategies of the Montana Bitterroot Salish Indians, 1870–1891 By Robert J. Bigart In 1870, the Bitterroot Salish Indians—called “Flatheads” by the first white explorers to encounter them—were a small tribe living on the western slope of the Northern Rocky Mountains in Montana Territory. Pressures on the Salish were intensifying during this time, from droughts and dwindling resources to aggressive neighboring tribes and Anglo-American expansion. In 1891, the economically impoverished Salish accepted government promises of assistance and retreated to the Flathead Reservation, more than sixty miles from their homeland.

In Getting Good Crops, Robert J. Bigart examines the full range of available sources to explain how the Salish survived into the twentieth century, despite their small numbers, their military disadvantages, and the aggressive invasion of white settlers who greedily devoured their land and its natural resources. Bigart argues that a key to the survival of the Salish, from the early nineteenth century onward, was their diplomatic agility and willingness to form strategic alliances and friendships with non-Salish peoples. In doing so, the Salish navigated their way through multiple crises, relying more on their wits than on force. The Salish also took steps to sustain themselves economically. Although hunting and gathering had been their mainstay for centuries, the Salish began farming—“getting good crops”—to feed themselves because buffalo were becoming increasingly scarce. Raised on the Flathead Reservation himself, the author is seeking to convey the Salish story from their perspective, despite the paucity of written Salish testimony. What emerges is a picture—both inspiring and heartbreaking—of a people maintaining autonomy against all odds.

Life at the Kiowa, Comanche, and Wichita Agency The Photographs of Annette Ross Hume By Kristina L. Southwell and John R. Lovett Anadarko, Oklahoma, bills itself today as the “Indian Capital of the Nation,” but it was a drowsy frontier village when budding photographer Annette Ross Hume arrived in 1890. Home to a federal agency charged with serving the many American Indian tribes in the area, the town burgeoned when the U.S. government auctioned off building lots at the turn of the twentieth century. Hume faithfully documented its explosive growth and the American Indians she encountered. Her extraordinary photographs are collected here for the first time. In their introduction, authors Kristina L. Southwell and John R. Lovett provide an illuminating biography of Hume, focusing on her life in Anadarko and the development of her photographic skills. Born in 1858, in Perrysburg, Ohio, Hume moved to Oklahoma Territory with her husband after he accepted an appointment as physician for the Kiowa, Comanche, and Wichita Agency. She soon acquired a camera and began documenting daily life. Her portraits of everyday life are unforgettable—images of Indian mothers with babies in cradleboards, tribal elders (including Comanche chief Quanah Parker) conducting council meetings, families receiving their issue of beef from the government agent, and men and women engaging in the popular pastime of gambling. In 1927, historian Edward Everett Dale, on behalf of the University of Oklahoma, purchased Hume’s original glass plates for the university’s newly launched Western History Collections. The Annette Ross Hume collection has been a favorite of researchers for many years. Now this elegant volume makes Hume’s photographs more widely accessible, allowing a unique glimpse into a truly diverse American West. Kristina L. Southwell is Associate Professor of Bibliography and Assistant Curator at the Western History Collections, University of Oklahoma Libraries. John R. Lovett is Director of Special Collections and Curator at the Western History Collections.

Writing by Indians of the American Southeast who were not removed

The People Who Stayed Southeastern Indian Writing after Removal Edited by Geary Hobson, Janet McAdams, and Kathryn Walkiewicz The two-hundred-year-old myth of the “vanishing” American Indian still holds some credence in the American Southeast, the region from which tens of thousands of Indians were relocated after passage of the Indian Removal Act in 1830. Yet, as the editors of this volume amply demonstrate, a significant Indian population remained behind after those massive relocations. The first anthology to focus on the literary work of Native Americans who trace their ancestry to “people who stayed” in southeastern states after 1830, this volume represents every state and every genre, including short stories, excerpts from novels, poetry, essays, plays, and even Web postings. Although most works are contemporary, the collection covers the entire post-Removal era. Some of the contributors are well known, while others have only recently emerged as important literary voices. october $24.95s original paperback 978-0-8061-4136-7 6.125 × 9.25 404 pages american indian

All of the writers in The People Who Stayed affirm their Indian ancestry, though many live outside the Southeast today. As this anthology demonstrates, indigenous Southeastern writing engages the local and the global, the traditional and the modern. While many speak to the prospects and perils of acculturation, all the writers bear witness to the ways, oblique or straightforward, that they and their families continue to honor their Indian identities despite the legacy of removal. In an introduction to the volume and in headnotes on each contributor, the editors provide historical context and literary insight on the diversity of writing and lived experiences found in these pages. All readers, from students to scholars, will gain newfound understanding of the literature—and the human experience—of Native people of the American Southeast.

Wives and Husbands Gender and Age in Southern Arapaho History By Loretta Fowler In Wives and Husbands, distinguished anthropologist Loretta Fowler deepens readers’ understanding of the gendered dimension of cultural encounters by exploring how the Arapaho gender system affected and was affected by the encounter with Americans as government officials, troops, missionaries, and settlers moved west into Arapaho country. Fowler examines Arapaho history from 1805 to 1936 through the lens of five cohorts, groups of women and men born during different year spans. Through the life stories of individual Arapahos, she vividly illustrates the experiences and actions of each cohort during a time when Americans tried to impose gender asymmetry and to undermine the Arapahos’ hierarchical age relations. Fowler examines the Arapaho gender system and its transformations by considering the partnerships between, rather than focusing on comparisons of, women and men. She argues that in particular cohorts, partnerships between women and men— both in households and in the community—shaped Arapahos’ social and cultural transformations while they struggled with American domination. Over time Arapahos both reinforced and challenged Arapaho hierarchies while accommodating and resisting American dominance. Fowler shows how, in the process of reconfiguring their world, Arapahos confronted Americans by uniting behind strategies of conciliation in the early nineteenth century, of civilization in the late nineteenth century, and of confrontation in the early twentieth century. At the same time, women and men in particular cohorts were revamping Arapaho politicoreligious ideas and organizations. Gender played a part in these transformations, giving shape to new leadership traditions and other adaptations. Loretta Fowler is Professor Emeritus of Anthropology at the University of Oklahoma. She is the author of numerous books, including Tribal Sovereignty and the Historical Imagination: Cheyenne-Arapaho Politics and The Columbia Guide to American Indians of the Great Plains.

This book presents for the first time a facsimile, transcription, English and Spanish translation, and grammatical analysis of the Morán Manuscript, a Colonial-era document that provides the sole attestation of Ch’olti’.

In addition to its value as a chronicle of the Colonial period, the Morán Manuscript is crucial to our understanding of the Classic Maya, particularly their language, captured in thousands of intricately carved and painted hieroglyphic inscriptions. Robertson, Law, and Haertel, regarded as the ablest interpreters of Ch’olti’ now working in Mayan linguistics, provide not only a painstaking presentation of language data but also a detailed history of the manuscript itself. They discuss the document’s probable authorship, investigate where and by whom Ch’olti’ was spoken at contact, and infer how speakers maintained their expressive capabilities in the face of colonial oppression. The transcribed Ch’olti’ texts feature an orthographically standardized version with a morpheme-by-morpheme gloss, a literal English translation that preserves many of the poetic structures and metaphors, and a flowing translation in both English and Spanish. The publication of this document marks a major contribution to the fields of Maya epigraphy, Mayan linguistics, ethnohistory, and Mesoamerican languages. It will serve as the definitive presentation of the Morán Manuscript and stand as a major contribution to further understanding the language of the Maya inscriptions in Mexico and Guatemala.

A Place of Refuge Maynard Dixon’s Arizona By Thomas Brent Smith With an additional essay by Donald J. Hagerty Western painter Maynard Dixon once pronounced “Arizona” “the magic name of a land bright and mysterious, of sun and sand, of tragedy and stark endeavor.” “So long had I dreamed of it,” he professed, “that when I came there it was not strange to me. Its sun was my sun; its ground was my ground.” The California-born Dixon (1875–1946) first traveled to Arizona in 1900 to absorb what he believed was a vanishing West. Dixon found Arizona a visually inspiring and spiritual place that shaped the course of his paintings and ultimately defined him. A Place of Refuge: Maynard Dixon’s Arizona is the first exhibition to focus solely on the renowned painter’s depictions of Arizona subjects. As early as 1903 Dixon referred to Arizona as home. Although he spent most of his life in San Francisco, Dixon lamented to friends that he longed for Arizona and the solitude of the desert, and he frequently traversed the land’s varied expanses. In 1939 he made Tucson his winter home and spent his remaining years painting his beloved desert landscape. In the confluence of Arizona’s natural and cultural landscapes, Dixon would become one of the West’s most distinctive painters, creating a body of work that established his place among the vanguard of artists who portrayed western subjects. Thomas Brent Smith explores Dixon’s remarkable departure from traditional depictions of human conflict in the “Old West” rendered by such predecessors as Frederic Remington, Charles M. Russell, and Charles Schreyvogel. Smith’s essay describes this shift in artistic ideology and analyzes the tranquil images that emerged on Dixon’s canvases. Donald J. Hagerty’s biographical essay highlights Dixon’s travels and his affinity for the people and landscape of Arizona. Thomas Brent Smith is Director of the Petrie Institute of Western American Art at the Denver Art Museum. Donald J. Hagerty, an independent scholar, is author of Desert Dreams: The Art and Life of Maynard Dixon.

Sexton and Fredy Rodríguez-Mejía Stories told in Spanish by Pedro Cholotío Temó and Alberto Barreno In the delightful Mayan folktale “The Dog Who Spoke,” we learn what happens when a dog’s master magically transforms into a dog-man who reasons like a man but acts like a dog. This and the other Mayan folktales in this bilingual collection brim with the enchanting creativity of rural Guatemala’s oral culture. In addition to stories about ghosts and humans turning into animals, the volume also offers humorous yarns. Hailing from the Lake Atitlán region in the Guatemalan highlands, these tales reflect the dynamics of, and conflicts between, Guatemala’s Indian, Ladino, and white cultures.

Montejo (who died in 2008) was awarded both the National Prize for Literature in his native Venezuela and the prestigious Octavio Paz International Poetry and Essay Prize. This long-overdue volume offers selections from all ten of Montejo’s books of poetry, as well as a handful of exemplary prose works. All of the selections are presented here in the original Spanish, with translations in English by Kirk Nesset, a prize-winning American writer and poet.

The book also includes excerpts from Montejo’s Notebook of Blas Coll and Guitar of the Horizon, and three complete essays selected specifically for the insight and depth they lend to his work in both genres. The book’s introduction situates and appraises Montejo’s achievement, exploring the corpus comprehensively for the first time in English.

D’Indy’s ideas about composition, best articulated in the lectures presented here, were unique in their combination of historical concepts and music theory. This is the first publication of d’Indy’s work in English. In addition to a faithful translation, Gail Hilson Woldu provides annotations that clarify d’Indy’s often complex concepts and correct his occasional errors of fact. In her introduction, Woldu places d’Indy in the world of French music education at the turn of the twentieth century, identifies the chief musical influences on the composer, and discusses the political and religious controversies surrounding the Schola Cantorum and the Paris Conservatoire. The book concludes with the pioneering work of d’Indy scholar Merle Montgomery, who was the first to translate the Cours into English. Her study offers a comparative framework for understanding d’Indy’s place in the history of music composition and theory. This volume introduces students and scholars of music history and composition to an influential teacher and prolific composer of the early twentieth century. Gail Hilson Woldu is Associate Professor of Music at Trinity College, Hartford, Connecticut. She has authored numerous articles on Gabriel Fauré, Vincent d’Indy, and leading schools of music in late-nineteenth- and early-twentieth-century France. Merle Montgomery (1904–86) enjoyed a long career as a music educator and promoter. The National Music Council, the Black Music Colloquium and Competition, Music Education for the Handicapped, and the National Federation of Music Clubs are among the many organizations and causes that benefited from her leadership and love of music. A. Robert Johnson is Artistic Director of the New York Philomusica Chamber Ensemble, of which Merle Montgomery was a Founding Director.

Gangs, Pseudo-militaries, and Other Modern Mercenaries New Dynamics in Uncomfortable Wars By Max G. Manwaring Foreword by Edwin G. Corr Afterword by John T. Fishel As the first decade of the twenty-first century has made brutally clear, the very definitions of war and the enemy have changed almost beyond recognition. Threats to security are now as likely to come from armed propagandists, popular militias, or mercenary organizations as they are from conventional armies backed by nationstates. In this timely book, national security expert Max G. Manwaring explores a little-understood actor on the stage of irregular warfare—the gang. Since the end of the Cold War, some one hundred insurgencies or irregular wars have erupted throughout the world. Gangs have figured prominently in more than half of those conflicts, yet these and other nonstate actors have received little focused attention from scholars or analysts. This book fills that void. Employing a case study approach, and believing that shadows from the past often portend the future, Manwaring begins with a careful consideration of the writings of V. I. Lenin. He then scrutinizes the Piqueteros in Argentina, gangs in Colombia, private armies in Mexico, Hugo Chavez’s use of popular militias in Venezuela, and the looming threat of Al Qaeda in Western Europe.

Manwaring, a retired U.S. Army colonel, is Professor of Military Strategy at the U.S. Army War College, where he holds the General Douglas MacArthur Chair of Research. He is the author of numerous books, including Insurgency, Terrorism, and Crime. Edwin G.

Forging a Nation The American History Collection at Gilcrease Museum Contributions by Kimberly Roblin, Amanda Lett, Eric Singleton, and Randy Ramer Foreword by Duane H. King On a humid morning in Philadelphia in 1776, the Second Continental Congress adopted the Declaration of Independence, severing forever all ties with Great Britain. With the stroke of a pen, a new republic was formed, the United States of America. As colonists-turned-citizens took to the streets in celebration, few had any real sense of the new nation’s immediate future or could foresee the great struggles that lay before it in the centuries to come. Forging a Nation: The American History Collection at Gilcrease Museum explores that struggle—the history of the United States—as told through art, artifacts, and archival materials that illuminate some three hundred years of a shared cultural experience. Drawn entirely from the diverse and noted collections of the Gilcrease Museum, this volume examines the foundations of the American republic from colonial times through the Early National period. With essays focused on some of the finest artworks, artifacts, and documents in the Gilcrease Museum collection, Forging a Nation offers a unique examination of early American life. The catalog of artists includes such essential American painters as Charles Willson Peale, John Singleton Copley, Robert Feke, Benjamin West, George Catlin, Alfred Jacob Miller, Emanuel Leutze, John Vanderlyn, William Tylee Ranney, and John Wesley Jarvis. Also included are rare sculptures by Jean Antoine Houdon, Hiram Powers, and Augustus Saint-Gaudens and an extensive array of American archival treasures, including a handwritten transcription of the Declaration of Independence itself.

A thorough history of the Cherokee legal system

The Development of Law and Legal Institutions among the Cherokees By Thomas Lee Ballenger Foreword by Chad Smith Before the arrival of Europeans to North America, Cherokee Indians practiced a form of justice called blood law, or clan law. In this system, responsibility for the punishment of a homicide fell to the clan of the victim. In the nineteenth century, following the forced removal of tribal members to Indian Territory, the Cherokee Nation developed a court system that is still in use today. In this thorough account, Thomas Lee Ballenger traces the history of Cherokee justice from its traditional beginnings to the development of its modern-day institutions. distributed for Cherokee National Press

The Development of Law and Legal Institutions among the Cherokees was submitted by Ballenger to the University of Oklahoma as his doctoral dissertation in 1937. Although he later published many books, his dissertation was never published during his lifetime. Yet this work contains research and information still valuable and pertinent for today’s readers and scholars. Here, Ballenger describes how the Cherokee Nation adapted legal ideals and customs to create an efficient government and debunks popular inaccuracies about American Indians. During his research, he interviewed many Cherokee people, including judges and law officers, who were active participants in the Cherokee Nation’s legal system in the latter half of the nineteenth century. Ballenger’s work serves as significant documentation of a strong judicial system, developed by an advanced people who, in the face of adversity, were able to survive, adapt, prosper, and excel. Thomas Lee Ballenger (1882–1987) was a historian, teacher, and author of numerous publications relating to the Cherokee Nation. Chad Smith is Principal Chief of the Cherokee Nation.

Crews, Starbuck records of the moravians among the cherokeeS

Provides a valuable firsthand account of daily life among the Cherokees during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries

Records of the Moravians among the CherokeeS Volume One: Early Contact and the Establishment of the First Mission, 1752–1802 Volume Two: Beginnings of the Mission and Establishment of the School, 1802–1805 Edited by C. Daniel Crews and Richard W. Starbuck In the mid-eighteenth century, members of the Moravian Church, which had its origins in Central Europe, began conducting mission work among the Cherokee people. Their archives, now housed in North Carolina, include valuable records of their contact with the Cherokees. Drawing from these archives, these two volumes offer a firsthand account of daily life among the Cherokees during the years 1752– 1805. Although written by missionaries and from their perspective, the documents contained in these volumes—ranging from reports and minutes to diaries and correspondence—provide great insight into Cherokee culture, society, customs, and personalities during this period. The first volume describes initial contact between the Moravians and Cherokees during the French and Indian War and the Revolution, exploratory visits by Moravian missionaries into the Cherokee Nation, and the founding of a mission—called Springplace—in northern Georgia. The second volume ends with the year 1805. As the Moravians occupy Springplace, they begin to spread the Gospel. The Cherokees, in turn, are interested in schooling for their children, who need new tools to deal with the encroachment of white settlers upon their land and life. Future volumes in this series will continue the story through Removal, the Civil War, and to the close of the nineteenth century. C. Daniel Crews, an ordained minister and Archivist of the Moravian Church, Southern Province, is the author of several publications on Moravian history and theology. Richard W. Starbuck, a former writer and editor for the WinstonSalem Journal-Sentinel newspapers, serves as editor for the Moravian Archives. With C. Daniel Crews, he is coauthor of With Courage for the Future: The Story of the Moravian Church, Southern Province.

The British Army on Campaign

By Jay H. Buckley

in North America, 1775–1783 Examines the long and influential public career of the famed explorer

By Matthew H. Spring A thorough reinterpretation of British performance during the American Revolution

The image is indelible: densely packed lines of slow-moving Redcoats picked off by American sharpshooters. Now Matthew H. Spring reveals how British infantry in the American Revolutionary War really fought. This groundbreaking book offers a new analysis of the British Army during the “American rebellion” at both operational and tactical levels. Presenting fresh insights into the speed of British tactical movements, Spring discloses how the system for training the army prior to 1775 was overhauled and adapted to the peculiar conditions confronting it in North America. First scrutinizing such operational problems as logistics, manpower shortages, and poor intelligence, Spring then focuses on battlefield tactics to examine how troops marched to the battlefield, deployed, advanced, and fought. In particular, he documents the use of turning movements, the loosening of formations, and a reliance on bayonet-oriented shock tactics, and he also highlights the army’s ability to tailor its tactical methods to local conditions. Written with flair and a wealth of details that will engage scholars and history enthusiasts alike, With Zeal and with Bayonets Only offers a thorough reinterpretation of how the British Army’s North American campaign progressed and invites serious reassessment of most of its battles. Matthew Spring holds a Ph.D. in history from the University of Leeds and teaches history at Truro School, an independent secondary school in Cornwall, England.

For three decades following the expedition with Meriwether Lewis for which he is best known, William Clark forged a meritorious public career that contributed even more to the opening of the West: from 1807 to 1838 he served as the U.S. government’s most important representative to western Indians. This biography focuses on Clark’s tenure as Indian agent, territorial governor, and Superintendent of Indian Affairs at St. Louis. Drawing on treaty documents and Clark’s voluminous papers, Jay H. Buckley analyzes apparent contradictions in Clark’s relationship with Indians, fellow bureaucrats, and frontier entrepreneurs. He examines the choices Clark and his contemporaries made in formulating and implementing Indian policies and explores how Clark’s paternalism as a slaveholder influenced his approach to dealing with Indians. Buckley also reveals the ambiguities and cross-purposes of Clark’s policy making and his responses to such hostilities as the Black Hawk War. William Clark: Indian Diplomat is the complex story of a sometimes sentimental, yet always pragmatic, imperialist. Buckley gives us a flawed but human hero who, in the realm of Indian affairs, had few equals among American diplomats. Jay H.

A History of Five Centuries,

and Other Dreams

Second Edition

The Six Companies Story

By Arrell Morgan Gibson

By Donald E. Wolf

For anyone who wants to know more about the Sooner State.

A freewheeling saga about western American industrial might

The drama and excitement of the Oklahoma story unfold in this comprehensive history covering prehistory, Spanish and French exploration, the removal of Indian tribes to what the federal government called Indian Territory, and the modern period of state politics and economic development. Gibson informs his readers with refreshing candor: betrayal of the Indians, racism, and political corruption are told in their entirety.

Who conceived of the Hoover, Bonneville, and Grand Coulee dams? Who laid the financial foundations for the Golden Gate and San Francisco Bay bridges? In Big Dams and Other Dreams, Donald E. Wolf recounts how the interests of the visionary men behind these projects coincided during the early twentieth century, what they accomplished, and what has become of the empires they created.

Later chapters tell of the vibrant modern period, when Oklahoma politics became more sophisticated, the state’s economic base expanded as industry moved to the Sun Belt, and the humanities and the arts were advanced with increasing appreciation of the state’s rich Indian heritage.

In twelve colorful, thoroughly researched chapters, Wolf gracefully renders the story of Six Companies, a combine of firms led by industrial giants Henry J. Kaiser, Marriner Eccles, Harry Morrison, Charles Swigert, Philip Hart, Felix Kahn, and Charlie Shea, among others. Together, these executives played a major role in developing the modern American West and in building the structures we associate with it. Then, as World War II threatened, they undertook ever more spectacular projects.

Enlivened by numerous illustrations and maps, this volume is a valuable resource for teachers, students, historians, and anyone who wants to know more about the Sooner State. Arrell Morgan Gibson (1921–87) was the George Lynn Cross Research Professor of History at the University of Oklahoma. Among the numerous books he authored or edited are The Kickapoos: Lords of the Middle Border and The Chickasaws.

Using a wide range of sources and interviews, Wolf weaves personal, political, and industrial history into a compelling account that will appeal to historians and general readers alike. Donald E. Wolf is former president and CEO of Wolf and Company, a small engineering firm in New York State.

Draws on eyewitness accounts to tell the story of the fabled Santa Fe Trail

“An exceptionally well-written work of history, tantalizing in its depictions and seductive in the power of its narrative.” —Western Historical Quarterly For nearly half a century, the Santa Fe Trail served as an avenue of exchange, where transactions ranged from friendly give-andtake to guarded trade to lethal attempts to settle scores. In 1846, the trail became the means for American seizure of Mexican territory—yet the economic and cultural exchanges continued even in the midst of war. In Bound for Santa Fe, Stephen G. Hyslop draws on eyewitness accounts to retrace the journey from Missouri to New Mexico, weaving together nearly one hundred accounts by scores of people who traveled the trail. Stephen G. Hyslop is an independent scholar who has written extensively on American history and the Spanish-American frontier. He served as editor of a 23-volume series on American Indians for Time-Life Books and is coauthor of several books published by the National Geographic Society.

From 1855 to 1856 in western Oregon, the Native peoples along the Rogue River outmaneuvered and repeatedly drove off white opponents. In The Rogue River Indian War and Its Aftermath, 1850–1980, historian E. A. Schwartz explores the tribal groups’ resilience not only during this war but also in every period of federal Indian policy that followed. Schwartz’s work examines Oregon Indian people’s survival during American expansion as they coped with each federal initiative, from reservation policies in the nineteenth century through termination and restoration in the twentieth. While their resilience facilitated their success in adjusting to white society, it also made the people known today as the Confederated Tribes of Siletz Indians susceptible to federal termination programs in the 1970s—efforts that would have dissolved their communities and given their resources to non-Indians. Drawing on a range of federal documents and anthropological sources, Schwartz explores both the history of Native peoples of western Oregon and U.S. Indian policy and its effects. E. A. Schwartz is Associate Professor of history at California State University, San Marcos.

California Paiute

Living in Two Worlds

Their Behavior and Biology

By Diana Meyers Bahr

By Paul A. Johnsgard and Montserrat Carbonell

Recounts an extraordinary life story, drawn from Viola’s own words

“Viola Martinez, California Paiute is important because only a few biographical studies exist about California Indian women. It is refreshing to read an account that covers so much of the twentieth century.”—Steven Crum, author of Road on Which We Came: A History of the Western Shoshone “The strength of Bahr’s book lies in the wonderful storytelling of Viola Martinez, who brings her experiences alive, demonstrating the universality of the human experience.”

An in-depth biological overview of a fascinating group of waterfowl

Paul A. Johnsgard’s first glimpse of a North American ruddy duck—a chestnut-brown bird with a blue bill, black head, and white cheeks—led to decades of observing the eight extant species of stiff-tailed ducks. In Ruddy Ducks and Other Stifftails, he and Montserrat Carbonell introduce general readers and ornithologists to the ruddy’s morphology, behavior, ecology, and diverse relatives. This richly illustrated volume highlights these unique species at a critical time, when their wetlands habitats are increasingly at risk.

Margaret Connell Szasz, editor of Between Indian and White Worlds: The Cultural Broker The life story of Viola Martinez, an Owens Valley Paiute Indian of eastern California, extends over nine decades of the twentieth century. Viola experienced forced assimilation in an Indian boarding school, overcame racial stereotypes to pursue a college degree, and spent several years working at a Japanese American internment camp during World War II. In this book, Diana Meyers Bahr draws on Viola’s own words to recount her extraordinary life story and examine her strategies for dealing with acculturation.

How American Indians contributed to the making of greater Los Angeles

Vineyards and Vaqueros Indian Labor and the Economic Expansion of Southern California, 1771–1877 By George Harwood Phillips “George Harwood Phillips, the acknowledged dean of California Indian history, has produced another landmark contribution to the field. Vineyards and Vaqueros is an insightful and carefully nuanced study, one that deserves a place in the library of every student of California history.”—James J. Rawls, author of Indians of California: The Changing Image Indian labor was vital to the early economic development of the Los Angeles region. This first volume in the new series Before Gold: California under Spain and Mexico explores for the first time Native contributions to early Southern California.

Opening with a survey of the economic dimension of traditional southern California Indian cultures, Phillips then examines the origins and collapse of the missions, the emergence and expansion of the pueblo of Los Angeles, and the creation and decline of the ranchos. He closely considers the Indians’ incorporation into these foreignimposed institutions and the resulting impact on the region’s economy and society. While concentrating on the Tongvas (Gabrielinos), Phillips also considers Indians who entered the region from the south. Based on exhaustive research, Phillips’s account focuses on California Indians more as workers than as victims. He describes the work they performed and how their relations evolved with the missionaries, settlers, and rancheros who employed them. Phillips emphasizes the importance of Indian labor in shaping the economic history of what is now Los Angeles, Orange, and Riverside counties.

Dude Ranching in Yellowstone Country Larry Larom and Valley Ranch, 1915–1969 By W. Hudson Kensel After riding a stagecoach in Buffalo Bill’s Wild West show at Madison Square Garden in 1910, Princeton student Iriving H. “Larry” Larom was determined to live a life in the West. Later that year, Larom made the first of four summer trips to Wyoming, where he was a guest at Jim McLaughlin’s Valley Ranch, nestled in a scenic valley in the upper South Fork of the Shoshone River. Larom became so enamored of the magnificent wilderness environment and the prospects of becoming a dude rancher that he abandoned his life as a New York socialite. Partnering with Brooks Brothers heir and Yale student Winthrop Brooks, he purchased Valley Ranch in 1915.

Kensel draws on Larom’s papers, local and national newspaper coverage, records of the ranch’s prep school, and memories of the citizens and pioneers of northwestern Wyoming to flesh out the story of Valley Ranch as a local and national institution with important influences on conservation, youth education, and the development of western tourism.

1902 kensel dude ranching in yellowstome country

From New York socialite to Wyoming dude rancher

A welcome study of early dude ranch development, Dude Ranching in Yellowstone Country preserves the history of an important Wyoming ranch and the man who built it. W. Hudson Kensel recounts the life of Larom, whose East Coast connections to financial resources and wealthy guests enabled him to transform McLaughlin’s small homestead into a major tourist destination and prep school on the edge of Yellowstone National Park. The purchase of Valley Ranch coincided with the opening of Yellowstone to automobile traffic and the onset of World War I. Valley Ranch benefited as western parks and dude ranches became destinations for weary city dwellers and travelers looking for a vacation alternative to war-torn Europe. Besides making the ranch a success, Larom became a civic leader in Cody, Wyoming, a nationally recognized conservationist, and a founder and longtime president of the Dude Ranchers Association.

Firsthand accounts of the longest steamboat trip in U.S. history to that time

Steamboats West The 1859 American Fur Company Missouri River Expedition By Lawrence H. Larsen and Barbara J. Cottrell In 1859, the American Fur Company set out on what would then be the longest steamboat trip in North American history—a headline-making, 6,200-mile trek along the Missouri River from St. Louis to Fort Benton in present-day Montana, and back again. Steamboats West is an adventure story that navigates the rocky rapids of the upper Missouri to offer a fascinating account of travel to the raw frontier past the pale of settlement. It was a venture that extended trade deep into the Northwest and made an enormous stride in transportation.

Drawing on the journals of Dr. Elias Marsh and Charles Henry Weber and the official accounts of Charles P. Chouteau and Capt. William Franklin Raynolds, who traveled aboard the steamboats Spread Eagle and Chippewa, authors Lawrence H. Larsen and Barbara J. Cottrell weave together firsthand accounts of the river journey with helpful commentary. Along the way, they interject the river’s environmental history and portraits of the Native peoples who lived along the upper Missouri. Marsh and Weber remark on everything from the Montana landscape to mosquitoes to Mandan villages, and Weber’s never-before-published journal illustrates the recent technological changes that made their voyage possible. In the years after the Lewis and Clark expedition and before the Civil War, steamboats were crucial in establishing commercial water routes in the inland West. Larsen and Cottrell’s depiction of this one celebrated ride brings steamboat transport back to life as modern, fast, and imposing—an apt symbol of the westward expansion that spawned it.

McDermott red cloud’s war

The definitive history of the Bozeman Trail

Red Cloud’s War The Bozeman Trail, 1866–1868 By John D. McDermott On a cold December day in 1866, Captain William J. Fetterman disobeyed orders and spurred his men across Lodge Trail Ridge in pursuit of a group of retreating Lakota Sioux, Arapahos, and Cheyennes. He saw a perfect opportunity to punish the tribes for harassing travelers on the Bozeman Trail and attacking wood trains sent out from nearby Fort Phil Kearny. In a sudden turn of events, his command was, within moments, annihilated. John D. McDermott’s masterful retelling of the Fetterman Disaster is just one episode of Red Cloud’s War, the most comprehensive history of the Bozeman Trail yet written. In vivid detail, McDermott recounts how the discovery of gold in Montana in 1863 led to the opening of the 250-mile route from Fort Laramie to the goldfields near Virginia City, and the fortification of this route with three military posts. The road crossed the Powder River Basin, the last, best hunting grounds of the Northern Plains tribes. Oglala chief Red Cloud and his allies mounted a campaign of armed resistance against the army and Montana-bound settlers. Among a host of small but bloody clashes were such major battles as the Fetterman Disaster, the Wagon Box Fight, and the Hayfield Fight, all of them famous in the annals of the Indian Wars. McDermott’s spellbinding narrative offers a cautionary tale of hubris and miscalculation. The United States Army suffered one setback after another; what reputation for effectiveness it had gained during the Civil War dissipated in the skirmishing in faraway Big Horn country. In a thoughtful conclusion, McDermott reflects on the tribes’ victories and the consequences of the Treaty of 1868. By successfully defending their hunting grounds, the Northern Plains tribes delayed an ultimate reckoning that would come a decade later on the Little Bighorn, on the Red Forks of the Powder River, at Slim Buttes, at Wolf Mountain, and in a dozen other places where warrior and trooper met in the final clashes on the western plains.

green chickasaw lives, volume three

Historical essays and profiles of Chickasaw people compiled by their tribal historian

Chickasaw Lives Volume Three: Sketches of Past and Present By Richard Green Since he was hired by the Chickasaw Nation as tribal historian, Richard Green has followed his nose for good stories for more than fifteen years. Articles he has published during this time in The Journal of Chickasaw History and Culture and in the tribal newspaper, the Chickasaw Times, were well received by an interested and critical audience. The demand to have these essays and profiles collected in books resulted in the publication in 2007 of Chickasaw Lives, Volume One: Explorations in Tribal History, followed in 2008 by Chickasaw Lives, Volume Two: Profiles and Oral Histories.

Sketches of Past and Present is the third volume in the Chickasaw Lives series. In contrast to a conventional, chronological history, Green’s book is a fascinating amalgam of Chickasaw epochs and characters, grouped under headings of common themes. The reader is treated to stories of great Chickasaw athletes in the twentieth century, as well as an essay on the significance to Chickasaw history of the 1729 Natchez uprising. Green also offers an essay about Chief Piomingo’s famous meeting on July 11, 1794, with George Washington at his home in Philadelphia, along with a profile of Chickasaw firefighters who battle dangerous wildfires throughout the United States. The third in an important series, this uniquely rich book promises to interest readers of Chickasaw history, certainly, but will also provide unique context and perspective for any student of American history. Tribal Historian Richard Green is the founding editor of The Journal of Chickasaw History and author of the award-winning biography Te Ata: Chickasaw Storyteller, American Treasure.

larsen, larsen proud to be chickasaw

Vibrant portraits and essays offer insight into living elders of the Chickasaw Nation

Proud to Be Chickasaw By Mike and Martha Larsen Among Oklahoma painters, Mike Larsen is a living legend. His work—from a twenty-six-foot mural in the Oklahoma state capitol to a painting appearing on the U.S. postage stamp honoring the Oklahoma centennial—is visible and prominent. In 2005, leaders of the Chickasaw Nation commissioned Larsen to create twenty-four oil portraits of living Chickasaw elders. After those paintings were completed, the Chickasaws commissioned a second series of twenty-four portraits—showcased in this handsome, full-color volume. In Proud to be Chickasaw, the Chickasaw master artist and his wife, Martha Larsen, have again teamed up to offer insights into and insider perspectives on the lives of two dozen tribal elders, including a storyteller, a longtime contributor to music education in Oklahoma, and a World War II code talker. This book follows the critically acclaimed They Know Who They Are, which exhibits Mike Larsen’s first twenty-four paintings in the series, each accompanied by a biographical sketch of the elder by Martha Larsen. Proud to be Chickasaw captures the spirit of the most revered members of Chickasaw and American Indian society: the elders. This book is an exciting addition to the growing body of literature about American Indians, by American Indians.

Paige, bumpers, littlefield chickasaw removal

A uniquely detailed account of the removal of the Chickasaw Nation from their original homelands to Indian Territory

Chickasaw Removal By Amanda L. Paige, Fuller L. Bumpers, and Daniel F. Littlefield, Jr. In the early nineteenth century, the Chickasaw Indians were a beleaguered people. Anglo-American settlers were streaming illegally into their homelands east of the Mississippi River. Then, in 1830, the Indian Removal Act forced the Chickasaw Nation, along with other eastern tribes, to remove to Indian Territory, in present-day Oklahoma. This book provides the most detailed account to date of the Chickasaw removal, from their harrowing journey west to their first difficult years in an unfamiliar land.

November $20.00s Cloth 978-1-935684-00-8 220 Pages 6×9 60 B&W Illus. American Indian

The Chickasaw removal began in 1837, a few years after the departures of the Choctaws and Creeks. In their gripping account of the Chickasaws’ forced trek, authors Amanda L. Paige, Fuller L. Bumpers, and Daniel F. Littlefield, Jr., describe the array of characters the Chickasaws came across, including missionaries, whiskey peddlers, profiteering government agents, and contractors, some of whom purchased and distributed rations they knew would go rancid before the removing parties passed by their way stations. Although several histories have spotlighted the politics and events of the Removal Era, this book is a unique illumination of the “whole business” of removal, including details of the places where the Chickasaws camped, bought supplies, sought medical attention, and buried their dead. The story continues into Indian Territory, where the Chickasaws faced a new set of obstacles but eventually persevered to become the strong and successful nation they are today. Amanda L. Paige, associated with the Sequoyah Research Center at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock, is a historian, author, archivist, researcher, and museum specialist. Fuller L. Bumpers is a writer and historian specializing in Native American issues. Daniel F. Littlefield, Jr., is the director of the Sequoyah Research Center and the author of numerous books, including The Chickasaw Freedmen: A People Without a Country.
