Gerard Curtis Delano (United States, 1890–1972), Forest Primeval, n.d. Oil on Board. Gift of Lease-Air, Inc., National Museum of Wildlife Art

Wildlife in American Art Masterworks from the National Museum of Wildlife Art By Adam Duncan Harris The first European artist-naturalists to tour North America in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries were awed not only by the continent’s varying landforms but also by the animals they encountered: vast herds of buffalo, majestic horned stags, a bewildering variety of birds. The earliest sketches depicting these fauna began the remarkable tradition of wildlife in American art, a tradition that evolved along with the United States as a nation and still thrives today. For more than two decades, the National Museum of Wildlife Art in Jackson, Wyoming, has honored and sustained this tradition by assembling the most comprehensive collection of paintings and sculptures portraying North American wildlife in the world. Wildlife in American Art presents for the first time a generous sampling of the museum’s holdings, charts the history of this enduring theme in American art, and explores the evolving relationship between Americans and the natural resources of this continent. More than a museum catalogue, this volume offers descriptions of individual artists in the collection as well as in-depth, informative essays about what the natural environment has meant to Americans over time—untamed wilderness, sublime creation, endless resource, threatened habitat. Author and art historian Adam Duncan Harris also describes how these meanings have played out in painting and sculpture over the past two centuries. More than 125 full-color illustrations highlight the entire range of the museum’s collection, from the western wilds of George Catlin to the desert drama of Georgia O’Keeffe. Also included are elegant birdstones carved by ancient Americans, exquisite avian artwork by John James Audubon, epic western scenes by Albert Bierstadt, idealistic depictions of unspoiled wilderness by Carl Rungius, and modern takes on the subject by Andy Warhol, Paul Manship, and Robert Kuhn. By bringing together and comparing works of unmatched beauty and majesty, this volume gives to a salient theme in American art the attention it has long deserved. Adam Duncan Harris is Curator of Art at the National Museum of Wildlife Art in Jackson, Wyoming.

A rollicking inside look at filmmaking, James Dean, and Hollywood

Call Me Lucky A Texan in Hollywood By Robert Hinkle with Mike Farris “Do you think you could teach Rock Hudson to talk like you do?” The question came from famed Hollywood director George Stevens, and an affirmative answer propelled Bob Hinkle into a fifty-year career in Hollywood as a speech coach, actor, producer, director, and friend to the stars. Along the way, Hinkle helped Rock Hudson, Dennis Hopper, Carroll Baker, and Mercedes McCambridge talk like Texans for the 1956 epic film Giant. He also helped create the character Jett Rink with James Dean, who became a best friend, and he consoled Elizabeth Taylor personally when Dean was killed in a tragic car accident before the film was released.

A few years later, Paul Newman asked Hinkle to do for him what he’d done for James Dean. The result was Newman’s powerful portrayal of a Texas no-good in the Academy Award–winning film Hud (1963). Hinkle could—and did—stop by the LBJ Ranch to exchange pleasantries with the president of the United States. He did likewise with Elvis Presley at Graceland. Good friends with Robert Wagner, Hinkle even taught Wagner’s wife Natalie Wood how to throw a rope. He appeared in numerous television series, including Gunsmoke, Bonanza, Dragnet, and Walker, Texas Ranger. On a handshake, he worked as country music legend Marty Robbins’s manager, and he helped Evel Knievel rise to fame. From his birth in Brownfield, Texas, to a family so poor “they could only afford a tumbleweed as a pet,” Hinkle went on to gain acclaim in Hollywood. Through it all, he remained the salty, down-to-earth former rodeo cowboy from West Texas who could talk his way into—or out of—most any situation. More than forty photographs, including rare behind-the-scenes glimpses of the stars Hinkle met and befriended along the way, complement this rousing, never-dull memoir. Robert Hinkle is a retired actor, writer, producer, and director. He lives in Texas with his wife, Sandy. Mike Farris is a screenwriter and attorney. He and his wife, Susan, run Farris Literary Agency, Inc., in Dallas.

Lyndon B. Johnson and Modern America By Kevin J. Fernlund Born in a farmhouse in the Texas Hill Country, Lyndon Baines Johnson brought a western sensibility to the White House. Building on recent studies that have delved into Johnson’s Texas roots, Kevin J. Fernlund has written a brief, lively biography of the thirty-sixth president that better shows how his home state molded his early years—and how the one-time Houston schoolteacher eventually became a Texas tornado twisting across the state’s and soon the nation’s political landscape. Lyndon B. Johnson and Modern America offers a concise look at LBJ that shows how his career coincided with the ascendancy of American liberalism within a Cold War context. In particular, Fernlund extends recent observations regarding Johnson’s important role in regional transformation at a time when the South and West became full partners in the American economy. In examining LBJ’s promotion of the space program and his disastrous decision to escalate the war in Vietnam, Fernlund shows how these and other Johnson administration policies affected the American West. He describes how Johnson’s liberal agenda for the West became subverted by illiberal wars with enemies foreign and domestic, exposing the limits of liberalism and fostering the region’s nascent conservatism. He also compares Johnson’s commitment to social justice with that of his arch nemesis Ho Chi Minh, providing new insight for readers and an intriguing springboard for classroom discussion.

Although subsequent presidents also hailed from the West, Fernlund argues that Johnson was our last truly western chief executive. This new approach to LBJ offers a novel reading of an important Texan, his huge circles of influence, and his lasting impact on the American scene. Kevin J. Fernlund is Associate Professor of History and Education at the University of Missouri–St. Louis, author of William Henry Holmes and the Rediscovery of the American West, and editor of The Cold War American West, 1945–1989. He also serves as Executive Director of the Western History Association.

How an atomic scientist’s life intertwines with a region’s history

J. Robert Oppenheimer, the Cold War, and the Atomic West By Jon Hunner In 1922, the teenage son of a Jewish immigrant ventured from Manhattan to New Mexico for his health. It was the first of many trips to the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, a western retreat where J. Robert Oppenheimer would eventually hold pathbreaking discussions with world-renowned scientists about atomic physics. Oppenheimer came to feel at home in the American West, and while extensive studies have been made of the man, this is the first book to explicitly link him with the region. J. Robert Oppenheimer, the Cold War, and the Atomic West explores how the West influenced Oppenheimer as a scientist and as a person—and the role he played in influencing it.

Of Related Interest Inventing Los Alamos

Jon Hunner’s concise account of Oppenheimer’s life and the emergence of an Atomic West distills a vast literature for students and general readers. In this brisk, engaging biography, the author recounts how Oppenheimer helped locate the atomic weapons research lab at Los Alamos, New Mexico, and helped establish leading physics departments at the University of California–Berkeley and Caltech. By taking part in moving atomic physics west of the Mississippi, Oppenheimer bolstered the establishment of research labs, uranium mines, nuclear reactors, and more, bringing talented people—and billions of dollars in federal contracts—to the region. Interwoven into this atomic tale are insights into the physicist’s troubled growing-up years, his marriage and family life, the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and Oppenheimer’s eventual downfall. After the first atomic bomb burst over the New Mexican desert in 1945 and as the Cold War developed, the American myth of the Wild West expanded to encompass atomic sheriffs saving the world for democracy— even as powerful opponents began questioning Oppenheimer’s place in that story. Against the backdrop of the physicist’s life twining with the region’s history, Hunner explores the promise and peril of the Atomic Age.

Pushing the Bear After the Trail of Tears By Diane Glancy It is February 1839, and the survivors of the Cherokee Trail of Tears have just arrived in Fort Gibson, Indian Territory. A quarter of the removed Indian population have died along the way, victims of cold, disease, and despair. Now the Cherokee people confront an unknown future. How will they build anew from nothing? How will they plow fields of unbroken sod, full of rocks too heavy to lift? Can they put aside the pain and anger of Removal and find peace?

Pushing the Bear: After the Trail of Tears tells the story of the Cherokees’ resettlement in the hard years following Removal, a story never before explored in fiction. In this sequel to her popular 1996 novel Pushing the Bear: A Novel of the Trail of Tears, author Diane Glancy continues the tale of Cherokee brothers O-ga-na-ya and Knobowtee and their families, as well the Reverend Jesse Bushyhead, a Cherokee Christian minister. The book follows their travails in Indian Territory as they attempt to build cabins, raise crops, and adjust to new realities. The novel begins with a nation defeated—displaced, starving, broken, still walking that hated Trail in their dreams. Debate rages between followers of the old ways and converts to Christianity, and conflict between those who opposed and those who authorized resettlement eventually erupts into violence. In the aftermath of confusion, despair, and turmoil, a new nation emerges. Diane Glancy has received numerous awards for her writing, including the American Book Award, a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship, the Pushcart Prize, the Capricorn Prize for Poetry, the Five Civilized Tribes Playwriting Prize, and the North American Indian Prose Award. Of Cherokee and German-English descent, Glancy is Professor Emerita at Macalester College in St. Paul, Minnesota.

Nichol as Bl ack Elk Medicine Man, Missionary, Mystic By Michael F. Steltenkamp Since its publication in 1932, Black Elk Speaks has moved countless readers to appreciate the American Indian world that it described. John Neihardt’s popular narrative addressed the youth and early adulthood of Black Elk, an Oglala Sioux religious elder. Michael F. Steltenkamp now provides the first full interpretive biography of Black Elk, distilling in one volume what is known of this American Indian wisdom keeper whose life has helped guide others. Nicholas Black Elk: Medicine Man, Missionary, Mystic shows that the holy-man was not the dispirited traditionalist commonly depicted in literature, but a religious thinker whose outlook was positive and whose spirituality was not limited solely to traditional Lakota precepts. Combining in-depth biography with its cultural context, the author depicts a more complex Black Elk than has previously been known: a world traveler who participated in the Battle of the Little Bighorn yet lived through the beginning of the atomic age. Steltenkamp draws on published and unpublished material to examine closely the last fifty years of Black Elk’s life—the period often overlooked by those who write and think of him only as a nineteenth-century figure. In the process, the author details not just Black Elk’s life but also the creation of his life story by earlier writers, and its influence on the Indian revitalization movement of the late twentieth century. Nicholas Black Elk explores how a holy-man’s diverse life experiences led to his synthesis of Native and Christian religious practice. The first book to follow Black Elk’s lifelong spiritual journey—from medicine man to missionary and mystic— Steltenkamp’s work provides a much-needed corrective to previous interpretations of this special man’s life story. This biography will lead general readers and researchers alike to rediscover both the man and the rich cultural tradition of his people.

How one man made a difference to a generation of Cherokee youth

Coach Tommy Thompson and the Boys of Sequoyah By Patti Dickinson Foreword by Chadwick Smith When eleven-year-old Tommy Thompson arrived at a government-run Indian boarding school in 1915, it seemed a last resort for the youngster. Instead, it turned out to be the first step toward a life dedicated to helping others. Thompson went on to become a star athlete and football coach—a Cherokee legend whose story is remembered by many and is now finally told for a wider audience. Following gridiron fame at Northeastern State College, Thompson returned to Sequoyah Vocational School in 1947 as Boys’ Coach and Advisor. More than a thousand boys attended the boarding school during the eleven years he coached there. Writing for readers old and young, Patti Dickinson tells the inspiring story of how this one man made a difference in the lives of a generation of Cherokee youth.

Through football, Thompson taught his boys the skills and values they would need to succeed in life, and twice led his team to the state finals. Dickinson describes the success of that program, including one epic, rain-soaked championship game. She paints compelling portraits of Thompson’s boys—the men whose firsthand stories and reminiscences form the basis of the narrative—and re-creates daily life at the school. To his boys, Thompson was Ah-sky-uh, “the man,” a Cherokee term of respect. Half a century after his death, Sequoyah High School still reveres his memory. This book secures his place in history as it opens a new window on the boarding school experience. Patti Dickinson is the author of Hollywood the Hard Way: A Cowboy’s Journey. A native Oklahoman of Cherokee ancestry, she currently resides in Santa Maria, California. Chadwick Smith is the Principal Chief of the Cherokee Nation.

Indian Tribes of Okl ahoma A Guide By Blue Clark Oklahoma is home to nearly forty American Indian tribes, and it includes the largest Native population of any state. As a result, many Americans think of the state as “Indian Country.” For more than half a century readers have turned to Muriel H. Wright’s A Guide to the Indian Tribes of Oklahoma as the authoritative source for information on the state’s Native peoples. Now Blue Clark, an enrolled member of the Muscogee (Creek) Nation, has rendered a completely new guide that reflects the drastic transformation of Indian Country in recent years. As a synthesis of current knowledge, this book places the state’s Indians in their contemporary context as no other book has done. Solidly grounded in scholarship and Native oral tradition, it provides general readers the unique story of each tribe, from the Alabama-Quassartes to the Yuchis. Each entry contains a complete statistical and narrative summary of the tribe, encompassing everything from origin tales and archaeological research to contemporary ceremonies and tribal businesses. The entries also include tribal websites and suggested readings, along with photographs depicting prominent tribal personages, visitor sites, and accomplishments.

So begins the memoir of career Foreign Service officer Edward J. Perkins, the first black United States ambassador to South Africa. In 1986, President Ronald Reagan gave him the unparalleled assignment: dismantle apartheid without violence. As he fulfilled that assignment, Perkins was scourged by the American press, despised by the Afrikaner government, hissed at by white South African citizens, and initially boycotted by black South African revolutionaries, including Archbishop Desmond Tutu. His advice to President-elect George H. W. Bush helped modify American policy and hasten the release of Nelson Mandela and others from prison. Perkins’s up-by-your-bootstraps life took him from a cotton farm in segregated Louisiana to the white elite Foreign Service, where he became the first black officer to ascend to the top position of director general. This is the story of how one man turned the page of history. Edward J. Perkins, now retired as a U.S. Ambassador, is Senior Vice Provost Emeritus of International Programs at the International Programs Center, and Professor Emeritus of the School of International and Area Studies, at the University of Oklahoma. Connie Cronley is an award-winning journalist, radio commentator, and essayist. George P. Shultz is former U.S. Secretary of State. David L.

The Good Times Are All Gone Now Life, Death, and Rebirth in an Idaho Mining Town By Julie Whitesel Weston Julie Whitesel Weston left her hometown of Kellogg, Idaho, but eventually it pulled her back. Only when she returned to this mining community in the Idaho Panhandle did she begin to see the paradoxes of the place where she grew up. Her book combines oral history, journalistic investigation, and personal reminiscence to take a fond but hard look at life in Kellogg during “the good times.” Kellogg in the late 1940s and fifties was a typical American small town complete with high school football and basketball teams, marching band, and anti-Communist clubs; yet its bars, gambling dens, and brothels were entrenched holdovers from a rowdier frontier past. The Bunker Hill Mining Company, the largest employer, paid miners good wages for difficult, dangerous work, while the quest for lead, silver, and zinc denuded the mountainsides and laced the soil and water with contaminants. Weston researched the late-nineteenth-century founding of Kellogg and her family’s five generations in Idaho. She interviewed friends she grew up with, their parents, and her own parents’ friends—miners mostly, but also businesspeople, housewives, and professionals. Much of this memoir of place set during the Cold War and postMcCarthyism is told through their voices. But Weston also considers how certain people made a difference in her life, especially her band director, her ski coach, and an attorney she worked for during a major strike. She also explores her charged relationship with her father, a hardworking doctor revered in the community for his dedication but feared at home for his drinking and rages. The Good Times Are All Gone Now begins the day the smokestacks came down, and it reaches far back into collective and personal memory to understand a way of life now gone. The company town Weston knew is a different place, where “Uncle Bunker” is a Superfund site, and where the townspeople, as in previous hard times, have endured to reinvent Kellogg—not once, but twice. Julie Whitesel Weston practiced law for many years in Seattle, Washington. Her short stories and essays about Idaho, mining, skiing, and flyfishing have been published in Idaho Magazine, the Threepenny Review, River Styx, and other journals and in the anthology Our Working Lives. She and her husband now divide their year between Seattle and Hailey, Idaho. For more about the author, see her website at www.juliewweston.com.

Farr has written the first biographical portrait of Seyler, focusing on his two summers at Glacier in 1913 and 1914, his special relationship with the Blackfeet, and the magnificent art he created in the Northern Rockies. The book features more than one hundred images—many in color—including Seyler’s major works from Glacier, other paintings from his European years, and historic photographs from the park. Seyler enjoyed wide recognition in Europe in his day, but the wartime destruction of his European works has since relegated him to obscurity. This lavish volume shows the stunning visual impact of his art and secures his place as one of the paramount portrayers of a place we still call the Crown of the Continent.

Charles Deas and 1840s America By Carol Clark With contributions by Joan Carpenter Troccoli, Frederick E. Hoxie, and Guy Jordan Foreword by Lewis I. Stone and Peter H. Hassrick Charles Deas (1818–67), an enigmatic figure on the edge of mainstream artistic circles in mid-nineteenth-century New York, went west to explore new opportunities and subjects in 1840. From his adopted hometown of St. Louis, Deas sent his iconic paintings of fur trappers and Indians back east for exhibition and sale, briefly winning the recognition that had earlier eluded him. This handsome volume—featuring more than 150 illustrations, 70 in color—is the first book exclusively devoted to Deas. In two major essays, Carol Clark presents Deas’s haunting biography and complex art—works that embodied Americans’ uncertainty about the future of their rapidly expanding nation, especially in the contested spaces of the West. Ranging from Indian genre scenes to more violent and bizarre themes drawn from literature and his own imagination, Deas’s images reverberate with the racial tensions and cut-throat economic competition of the period. Three additional essayists examine the historical, political, and social context of Deas’s art and discuss in detail two of his major paintings, Walking the Chalk and Long Jakes, “the Rocky Mountain Man.”

The acclaimed sculptor of wildlife and western heroes tells his life story

Sculptor in Buckskin The Autobiography of Alexander Phimister Proctor Second Edition Edited by Katharine C. Ebner Foreword by Peter H. Hassrick Two disparate worlds met in the life of Alexander Phimister Proctor: the art world centered in the eastern United States and the world of the western frontier. Proctor was a remarkable amalgam: a big-game hunter and intrepid explorer who felt at home in Paris or New York, and an academically trained artist who painted and sculpted the characters and wild creatures of the West. This new edition of Proctor’s autobiography provides a thorough introduction to a distinctively American artist whose monumental sculptures and statues adorn parks, public buildings, and museums, as well as private homes and businesses across the country. The text, begun in the late 1930s, when Proctor was in his seventies, takes the reader on a far-flung journey from his birth in Ontario and childhood in Denver to his travels as a young man throughout the United States and eventually to Paris.

Ebner has annotated the autobiography and restored previously unpublished portions of the original manuscript.

Faces of the Frontier Photographic Portraits from the American West, 1845–1924 By Frank H. Goodyear III With an Essay by Richard White Their faces look out across a chasm of time. Stern and often stiff, they wear the high collars and hoop skirts, buckskins and ceremonial feathers of another era. The names of some are familiar—Teddy Roosevelt, Mark Twain, Sitting Bull, Annie Oakley. The names of others may be less well known, but they played a significant role in re-creating the American West. These are all people of the West, and their portraits give us a unique glimpse into a lost time and place. Faces of the Frontier showcases more than 120 photographic portraits of leaders, statesmen, soldiers, laborers, activists, criminals, and others, all posed before the cameras that made their way to nearly every mining shanty-town and frontier outpost on the prairie. Drawing primarily on the collection of the National Portrait Gallery, this book depicts many of the people who helped transform the West between the end of the Mexican War and passage of the Indian Citizenship Act. Accompanying the portraits are an introduction and two essays that provide historical context and help frame their interpretation. Frank Goodyear explores how photography influenced Americans’ understanding of the West by giving the region a face and by shaping public responses to western issues. Richard White questions the notion that these photographs accurately represent individuals and argues that the portraits’ subjects participated in a process that idealized them as types. This handsome volume is not only a record of the people we associate with the West during a remarkably formative eighty years but also a key to understanding what Americans then saw in the West, and how they saw themselves.

new books fall/winter 2009

How tribal politics, justice, and resistance intersected in turn-of-the-twentieth-century Choctaw society

Choctaw Crime and Punishment, 1884–1907 By Devon Abbott Mihesuah During the decades between the Civil War and the establishment of Oklahoma statehood, Choctaws suffered almost daily from murders, thefts, and assaults—usually at the hands of white intruders, but increasingly by Choctaws themselves. This book focuses on two previously unexplored murder cases to illustrate the intense factionalism that emerged among tribal members during those lawless years as conservative Nationalists and pro-assimilation Progressives fought for control of the Choctaw Nation.

October $32.95s Cloth 978-0-8061-4052-2 352 pages, 6 x 9 20 b&w illus., 1 map American Indian/Oklahoma

Devon Abbott Mihesuah describes the brutal murder in 1884 of her own great-greatgrandfather, Nationalist Charles Wilson, who was a Choctaw lighthorseman and U.S. deputy marshal. She then relates the killing spree of Progressives by Nationalist Silan Lewis ten years later. Mihesuah draws on a wide array of sources—even in the face of missing court records—to weave a spellbinding account of homicide and political intrigue. She painstakingly delineates a transformative period in Choctaw history to explore emerging gulfs between Choctaw citizens and address growing Indian resistance to white intrusions, federal policies, and the taking of tribal resources. The first book to fully describe this Choctaw factionalism, Choctaw Crime and Punishment is both a riveting narrative and an important analysis of tribal politics.

The Munsee Indians A History By Robert S. Grumet Foreword by Daniel K. Richter The Indian sale of Manhattan is one of the world’s most cherished legends. Few people know that the Indians who made the fabled sale were Munsees whose ancestral homeland lay between the lower Hudson and upper Delaware river valleys. The story of the Munsee people has long lain unnoticed in broader histories of the Delaware Nation. Now, The Munsee Indians deftly interweaves a mass of archaeological, anthropologi­ cal, and archival source material to resurrect the lost history of this forgotten people, from their earliest contacts with Europeans to their final expulsion just before the American Revolution. Anthropologist Robert S. Grumet rescues from obscurity Mattano, Tackapousha, Mamanuchqua, and other Munsee sachems whose influence on Dutch and British settlers helped shape the course of early American history in the mid-Atlantic heartland. He looks past the legendary sale of Manhattan to show for the first time how Munsee leaders forestalled land-hungry colonists by selling small tracts whose vaguely worded and bounded titles kept courts busy—and settlers out—for more than 150 years. Ravaged by disease, war, and alcohol, the Munsees finally emigrated to reservations in Wisconsin, Oklahoma, and Ontario, where most of their descendants still live today. Coinciding with the four hundredth anniversary of Hudson’s voyage to the river that bears his name, this book shows how Indians and settlers struggled, in land deals and other transactions, to reconcile cultural ideals with political realities. The result is the most authoritative treatment of the Munsee experience—one that restores this people to their place in history. Robert S. Grumet, anthropologist and retired National Park Service archeologist, is a Senior Research Associate with the McNeil Center for Early American Studies at the University of Pennsylvania. His numerous publications include The Lenapes and Historic Contact: Indian People and Colonists in Today’s Northeastern United States in the Sixteenth through Eighteenth Centuries. Daniel K. Richter, Professor of History and Director of the McNeil Center for Early American Studies at the University of Pennsylvania, is author of Facing East from Indian Country: A Native History of Early America.

A fresh perspective on the late Ming and early modern East Asia

A Dr agon’s Head and a Serpent’s Tail Ming China and the First Great East Asian War, 1592–1598 By Kenneth M. Swope The invasion of Korea by Japanese troops in May of 1592 was no ordinary military expedition: it was one of the decisive events in Asian history and the most tragic for the Korean peninsula until the mid-twentieth century. Japanese overlord Toyotomi Hideyoshi envisioned conquering Korea, Ming China, and eventually all of Asia; but Korea’s appeal to China’s Emperor Wanli for assistance triggered a six-year war involving hundreds of thousands of soldiers and encompassing the whole region. For Japan, the war was “a dragon’s head followed by a serpent’s tail”: an impressive beginning with no real ending.

Miller $29.95s Cloth 978-0-8061-3864-0

Kenneth M. Swope has undertaken the first full-length scholarly study in English of this important conflict. Drawing on Korean, Japanese, and especially Chinese sources, he corrects the Japan-centered perspective of previous accounts and depicts Wanli not as the self-indulgent ruler of received interpretations but rather one actively engaged in military affairs—and concerned especially with rescuing China’s client state of Korea. He puts the Ming in a more vigorous light, detailing Chinese siege warfare, the development and deployment of innovative military technologies, and the naval battles that marked the climax of the war. He also explains the war’s repercussions outside the military sphere—particularly the dynamics of intraregional diplomacy within the shadow of the Chinese tributary system. What Swope calls the First Great East Asian War marked both the emergence of Japan’s desire to extend its sphere of influence to the Chinese mainland and a military revival of China’s commitment to defending its interests in Northeast Asia. Swope’s account offers new insight not only into the history of warfare in Asia but also into a conflict that reverberates in international relations to this day. Kenneth M. Swope is Associate Professor of History at Ball State University, Muncie, Indiana, and editor of Warfare in China since 1600.

The War of 1812 in the Age of Napoleon By Jeremy Black The War of 1812 is etched into American memory with the burning of the Capitol and the White House by British forces, The Star-Spangled Banner, and the decisive naval battle of New Orleans. Now a respected British military historian offers an international perspective on the conflict to better gauge its significance. In The War of 1812 in the Age of Napoleon, Jeremy Black provides a dramatic account of the war framed within a wider political and economic context than most American historians have previously considered. In his examination of events both diplomatic and military, Black especially focuses on the actions of the British, for whom the conflict was, he argues, a mere distraction from the Napoleonic War in Europe. Black describes parallels and contrasts to other military operations throughout the world. He stresses the domestic and international links between politics and military conflict; in particular, he describes how American political unease about a powerful executive and strong army undermined U.S. military efforts. He also offers new insights into the war in the West, amphibious operations, the effects of the British blockade, and how the conflict fit into British global strategy. For those who think the War of 1812 is a closed book, this volume brims with observations and insights that better situate this “American” war on the international stage.

new books fall/winter 2009

The most comprehensive lexicon of the Osage language

Osage Dictionary By Carolyn Quintero Osage, a language of the Dhegiha branch of the Siouan family, was spoken until recently by tribal members in northeastern Oklahoma. No longer in daily use, it was in danger of extinction. Carolyn Quintero, a linguist raised in Osage County, worked with the last few fluent speakers of the language to preserve the sounds and textures of their complex speech. Compiled after painstaking work with these tribal elders, her Osage Dictionary is the definitive lexicon for that tongue, enhanced with thousands of phrases and sentences that illustrate fine points of usage. Drawing on a collaboration with the late Robert Bristow, an amateur linguist who had compiled copious notes toward an Osage dictionary, Quintero interviewed more than a dozen Osage speakers to explore crucial aspects of their language. She has also integrated into the dictionary explications of relevant material from Francis La Flesche’s 1932 dictionary of Osage and from James Owen Dorsey’s nineteenth-century research.

The dictionary includes over three thousand main entries, each of which gives full grammatical information and notes variant pronunciations. The entries also provide English translations of copious examples of usage. The book’s introductory sections provide a description of syntax, morphology, and phonology. Employing a simple Siouan adaptation of the International Phonetic Alphabet, Quintero’s transcription of Osage sounds is more precise and accurate than that in any previous work on the language. An index provides Osage equivalents for more than five thousand English words and expressions, facilitating quick reference. As the most comprehensive lexical record of the Osage language—the only one that will ever be possible, given the loss of fluent speakers—Quintero’s dictionary is indispensable not only for linguists but also for Osage students seeking to relearn their language. It is a living monument to the elegance and complexity of a language nearly lost to time and stands as a major contribution to the study of North American Indians. Carolyn Quintero researched and documented the Osage language for more than twenty years. Author of Osage Grammar and First Course in Osage, she was also president of Inter Lingua, Inc., a translating and interpreting service for clients worldwide.

Art as Performance, Story as Criticism Reflections on Native Literary Aesthetics By Craig S. Womack Pick up a work of typical literary criticism and you know what to expect: prose that is dry, pedantic, well-meaning but tedious—slow-going and essentially humorless. But why should that be so? Why can’t more literary criticism have a political edge and be engaging and fast-paced? Why can’t it include drama, personal narrative, and even humor? Why can’t criticism become an artistic performance, rather than just a discussion of art? Art as Performance, Story as Criticism is Craig Womack’s answer to these questions. Inventive and often outrageous, the book turns traditional literary criticism on its head, rejecting distanced, purely theoretical argumentation for intimate engagement with literary works. Focusing on Native American literature, Womack mixes forms and styles. He is unafraid to combine meticulous research and carefully considered historical perspectives with personal reactions and reflections.

November $39.95s Cloth 978-0-8061-4064-3 $24.95s Paper 978-0-8061-4065-0

The book opens with a short story, “The Song of Roe Náld,” in which a Native filmmaker loses control of his movie project, in part because of his homoerotic attraction to its star. The following chapters, or “mus(e)ings,” include original dramas, while others more closely resemble traditional literary criticism, such as essays discussing the lesser-known plays of Lynn Riggs and the stories of Durango Mendoza. Still other chapters defy easy categorization, such as the piece “Caught in the Current, Clinging to a Twig,” in which Womack interweaves historical analysis of the state of the Creek Nation in 1908 with a vivid recreation of the last day on earth of Creek poet Alexander Posey. Throughout the book, the author offers his take on such controversial issues as the Cherokee freedmen issue and the ban on gay marriage.

In being different, Womack seeks to breathe new life into literary analysis and in­ troduce criticism to a wider audience. Radical, groundbreaking, and refreshing, Art as Performance, Story as Criticism reinvents literary criticism for the twenty-first century.

The most exhaustive treatment of elections and race in the region in sixty years, The Triumph of Voting Rights in the South explores the impact of that landmark legislation and highlights lingering concerns about minority political participation.

In this state-by-state assessment, Charles S. Bullock III and Ronald Keith Gaddie show how minorities have become politically empowered thanks to the act— particularly its Section 5 provision, which requires jurisdictions that have had low levels of minority voting to obtain federal clearance before altering election laws. Blending data and anecdote, the authors demonstrate how minority participation in politics has improved as measured by voter registration and turnout, election of African Americans to political office, and minorities’ success in electing preferred candidates. Eleven southern states are discussed, including Arkansas and Tennessee, where Section 5 was not implemented, and Florida and Texas, where the act takes into account Latino participation. Concluding chapters offer a comparative assessment of voting rights progress across the South, explore the political by-products of the act, and analyze the 2008 election of President Barack Obama in light of wider access to the polls. The authors also discuss whether Section 5, set to expire in 2031, will be needed any longer. Political scientists, historians, students, and all those interested in southern politics and minority voting rights will find this study rich in information and insight as it shows how race and party interact in the modern South.

Disconnect The Breakdown of Representation in American Politics By Morris P. Fiorina, with Samuel J. Abrams Red states, blue states . . . are we no longer the United States? Morris P. Fiorina here examines today’s party system to reassess arguments about party polarization while offering a cogent overview of the American electorate. Building on the arguments of Fiorina’s acclaimed Culture War? The Myth of a Polarized America, this book explains how contemporary politics differs from that of previous eras and considers what might be done to overcome the unproductive politics of recent decades. Drawing on polling results and other data, Fiorina examines the disconnect between an unrepresentative “political class” and the citizenry it purports to represent, showing how politicians have become more polarized while voters remain moderate; how politicians’ rhetoric and activities reflect hot-button issues that are not public priorities; and how politicians’ dogmatic, divisive, and uncivil style of “debate” contrasts with the more civil discourse of ordinary Americans, who tend to be more polite and open to compromise than their leaders. Disconnect depicts politicians out of touch with the larger public, distorting issues and information to appeal to narrow interest groups. It can help readers better understand the political divide between leaders and the American public—and help steer a course for change.

As they trace the Presbyterian journey, they examine the way Presbyterians addressed the evil of slavery and the dispossession of Oklahoma’s Indians; the challenges of industrial society; the modern issues of depression, war, and racial injustice; and concerns of life and faith with which other Americans have also struggled. An insightful and independent history that draws upon firsthand accounts of congregations and church members across the state, Divided Hearts attests to the courage of Presbyterians in dealing with their struggles and shows a church very much at work—and at home—in Oklahoma. A former history professor and university administrator, Michael Cassity is the author of three books and numerous articles. The late Danney Goble was Professor of Letters at the University of Oklahoma and the award-winning author or coauthor of eight books about Oklahoma and Oklahomans.

The New Catalog of Maya Hieroglyphs Volume Two: The Codical Texts By Martha J. Macri and Gabrielle Vail This long-awaited resource complements its companion volume on Classic Period monumental inscriptions. Authors Martha J. Macri and Gabrielle Vail provide a comprehensive listing of graphemes found in the Dresden, Madrid, and Paris codices, 40 percent of which are unique to these painted manuscripts, and discuss current and past interpretations of these graphemes. The New Catalog uses an original coding system developed for the Maya Hieroglyphic Database Project. The new three-digit codes group the graphemes according to their visual, rather than functional, characteristics to allow readers to see distinctions between similar signs. Each entry contains the grapheme’s New Catalog code, an image, the corresponding Thompson number, proposed syllabic and logographic values, calendrical significance, and bibliographical citations. Appendices and an index of signs from both volumes contain images of all graphemes and variants ordered by code, allowing readers to search for graphemes by visual form or by their proposed logographic and phonetic values. Together the two volumes of the New Catalog represent the most significant updating of the sign lists for the Maya script proposed in half a century. They provide a cutting-edge reference tool critical to the research of Mesoamericanists in the fields of archaeology, art history, ethnohistory, and linguistics, and a valuable resource to scholars specializing in comparative studies of writing systems and related disciplines. Martha J. Macri is the first Rumsey Endowed Chair in California Indian Studies and Director of the Native American Language Center at the University of California, Davis. She is coauthor of The New Catalog of Maya Hieroglyphs, Volume 1: The Classic Period Inscriptions. Gabrielle Vail is a Research Scholar in the Division of Social Sciences at New College of Florida in Sarasota. She has specialized in studies of the Maya codices for over twenty years and is coeditor of The Madrid Codex: New Approaches to Understanding an Ancient Maya Manuscript.

The unusual story of the tribe that wanted a landfill in its backyard and the area residents who didn’t

A splendid memoir intertwining prose and poetry

The first complete biography of the frontiersman son of Sacagawea Sacagawea’s Child follows the life of JeanBaptiste Charbonneau, a boy born at the forefront of westward expansion in the early nineteenth century. Author Susan M. Colby details Charbonneau family history, analyzing the characters and cultures of Jean-Baptiste’s father, Toussaint, a French fur trader, and Sacagawea, his Shoshoni and Hidatsa mother. By turns a mountain man, interpreter, guide, hotel operator, and gold miner, “Pomp” remained on the western frontier nearly all of his life. This first complete biography offers historians and general readers a thought-provoking study of this unique American and the cultures and times that molded him.

On Native Ground takes us from Jim Barnes’s boyhood in rural southeastern Oklahoma during the Great Depression and World War II through his mature years as an internationally recognized poet. Of Choctaw and Welsh ancestry, Barnes is often identified as a Native American poet. He emphasizes his desire to be recognized for his art, not his blood. Yet he speaks eloquently here of his attachment to his “native ground,” the Choctaw region in Oklahoma—for him “the land where memory dwells.” This edition features a new postscript by the author.

Jim Barnes is retired as Distinguished Professor of English and Creative Writing at Brigham Young University. He and his wife, Cora Barnes McKown, currently reside in Atoka, Oklahoma, on the McKown family ranch, and in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Five Native American Plays

of the Old West

By Gary Clayton Anderson

By William S. Yellow Robe, Jr.

By Robert K. DeArment

How southwestern Indian peoples adapted to European conquest

Five plays by the award-winning Native playwright

The Indian Southwest, 1580–1830 demonstrates that, in the face of European conquest, severe drought, and disease, Indians in the Southwest proved remarkably adaptable and dynamic, remaining independent actors and even prospering. Some tribes temporarily joined Spanish missions or assimilated into other tribes. Others survived by remaining on the fringe of Spanish settlement, migrating, and expanding exchange relationships with other tribes. Still others incorporated remnant bands and individuals and strengthened their economic systems. The vibrancy of southwestern Indian societies today is due in part to the exchange-based political economies their ancestors created almost three centuries ago.

When leading Assiniboine playwright Wil­liam S. Yellow Robe, Jr., began his theatrical career, few roles existed for American Indians. So he wrote his own plays, creating parts for himself and other Native actors.

A look at some imposing figures who helped shape the legendary Old West In the American West of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, thousands of grassroots gunfighters straddled both sides of the law without hesitation. Noted historian Robert K. DeArment has combed court records and frontier newspapers to tell the story of twelve infamous gunfighters, feared in their own times but almost forgotten today. More than a collective biography of dangerous gunfighters, Deadly Dozen also functions as a social history of the gunfighter culture of the post–Civil War frontier West. Robert K. DeArment is the author of numerous books about law and order in the American West, including Ballots and

Gary Clayton Anderson, Professor of His­ tory at the University of Oklahoma, is author of The Conquest of Texas: Ethnic Cleansing in the Promised Land, 1820– 1875. The Indian Southwest, 1580–1830 won the publication award from the San Antonio Conservation Society.

Where the Pavement Ends contains five of Yellow Robe’s most poignant and powerful plays: The Star Quilter, The Body Guards, Rez Politics, The Council, and Sneaky. Written in the 1980s and 1990s and based on his experiences on the Fort Peck reservation, these plays explore American Indian experience, from Indian-white relations to ecology and identity. Combining raw reservation reality with subtle humor, their unique perspective on humanity remains fresh today. William S. Yellow Robe, Jr., currently teaches Native American literature and drama in the English Department at the University of Maine. He is the award-winning author of more than forty-five plays.

Publishers of the American West since 1902 shillingberg dodge city

The authoritative history of this quintessential western town

Dodge City The Early Years, 1872–1886 By Wm. B. Shillingberg The most famous cattle town of the trail-driving era, Dodge City, Kansas, holds a special allure for western historians and enthusiasts alike. Wm. B. Shillingberg now goes beyond the violence for which the town became notorious, more fully documenting its early history by uncovering the economic, political, and social forces that shaped Dodge.

Volume 23 in the Western Lands and Waters Series

October $49.95s Cloth 978-0-87062-378-3 416 pages, 6.125 x 9.25 34 b&w illus., 1 map Western History

The author cuts through legend and myth to depict a Dodge City that few people really know. He takes readers back to the southwestern Kansas frontier and traces a town’s evolution from a military site for protecting Santa Fe commerce, to a wild and lawless buffalo hunters’ rendezvous, to a regional freighting center and the primary shipping point for Texas cattle on the central plains. Amid all this activity a community sprang up in 1872 and was still stumbling toward maturity fourteen years later when the great herds no longer came. Shillingberg describes this transformation of place and purpose, along with its attendant political machinations and business fervor, revealing singular personalities, social turmoil, and a local economy in flux. Along the way, the book offers new perspectives on the Battle of Adobe Walls, the constant maneuvering of railroad moguls and cattle barons, and the exploits of such legendary figures as Bat Masterson and Wyatt Earp. Drawing on a wide range of primary sources, from city records to personal papers, Dodge City: The Early Years, 1872–1886 surpasses previous accounts of the town by depicting complex individuals and events in greater depth and detail. It shows us a community concerned with more than brothels, saloons, and gunplay. It will stand as the authoritative history of this quintessential western town.

California Odyssey

The Overland Diaries of

An Overland Journey on the

Washington Peck

Southern Trails, 1849

Edited and with Biographical

By William R. Goulding

Commentary by Susan M. Erb

Edited by Patricia A. Etter Foreword by Howard R. Lamar

Two never-before-published trail diaries bring history to life

An extraordinary first-person account of the southern Gold Rush route

A cooper and farmer from Ontario, Canada, Washington Peck (1801–89) spent decades traveling across the western frontier before finally settling in Washington Territory. Peck’s chronicle of his itinerant life offers fresh insight into some of the less traveled emigrant routes across the nineteenth-century West.

In 1849, William R. Goulding and the Knickerbocker Exploring Company struck out for California on the southern route—a road less traveled. This rare first-person diary of the southern Gold Rush trails, introduced and annotated by Patricia A. Etter, highlights an important alternative route to the Pacific Coast.

Peck left two wagon-train diaries—published here for the first time—that log western routes not often recorded: an 1850–51 trip to the California gold fields via the Platte River Road– Mormon Trail, the Salt Lake–Los Angeles southern route, and the California coastline; and a journey over the Santa Fe Trail in 1858, continuing on the Beale Wagon Road along the 35th parallel. In the course of their journeys, Peck and his wife Mercy witnessed many important nineteenth-century events, including the Gold Rush, the Mormon building of Salt Lake City, the Underground Railroad in Illinois, the buildup in New Mexico to the Civil War, and the admission to the Union of Washington State.

One of the best-educated Gold Rush participants, Goulding kept a remarkably articulate journal that recounts his meetings with the interesting and important people he encountered along the way. He describes the details of the trail itself—the weather and scenery, birds and animals, and a march “amidst heards [sic] of miriads of buffalo in all directions as far as the eyes could reach.” Goulding also recorded encounters with Hispanics and American Indians.

Through biographical commentary and explanatory annotation, editor Susan M. Erb enriches our understanding of the diary entries. Featuring numerous illustrations and maps, this book is must reading for trail enthusiasts and provides valuable new perspectives for western historians. Susan M. Erb is retired as a film-script editor and office ad­ ministrator. A fifth-generation descendant of Washington Peck, she resides in Vancouver, British Columbia.

William R. Goulding was one of New York City’s finest makers of surgical instruments in the 1840s. Patricia A. Etter is Librarian and Curator Emeritus of the Labriola Center, an American Indian Research Library at Arizona State University. She is author of To California on the Southern Route, 1849: A History and Annotated Bibliography. Howard R.

perry uprising!

The amazing life story of the internationally acclaimed Potawatomi artist, musician, and dancer

Uprising! Woody Crumbo’s Indian Art By Robert Perry The life of Woodrow “Woody” Crumbo (1912–1989) parallels the twentiethcentury evolution of American Indian art. An accomplished Native dancer, flutist, silversmith, and poet, Crumbo is perhaps best known today for his oil paintings and silk screens—revolutionary artworks that were denigrated by some critics at first but that helped move Indian art to museums of fine art, as well as its markets. Now the life story of an Indian artist who often went against the grain is told by an accomplished Indian storyteller.

October $29.95s Cloth 978-0-9797858-5-6 256 pages, 9 x 12 36 color and 74 b&w illus. American Indian/Art

Chickasaw author Robert Perry’s interest in gathering and preserving elders’ stories from neighboring tribes prompted him to write this long-awaited biography. Starting with a suitcase full of newspaper clippings provided by Crumbo’s widow, Perry traced Crumbo’s first flowering as an artist from his studies at Chilocco Indian School, where he befriended several Kiowas who taught him about their dances and regalia and introduced him to the traditional Kiowa cedar-wood flute. The book follows Crumbo from Chilocco to his studies at Wichita University and the University of Oklahoma, his years touring as an Indian dancer, and his position as director of art at Bacone College in Muskogee, Oklahoma. Later, Crumbo collaborated with Taos artists, helped organize Indian art exhibitions at the Gilcrease and Philbrook art museums in Tulsa, and directed the El Paso Museum of Art. Uprising! Woody Crumbo’s Indian Art tells a compassionate and inspiring story as it fills a gap in the historical record regarding indigenous artists of the century just closed. Robert Perry sits on the Council of Elders of the Chickasaw Nation. He is author of The Turkey Feather Cape: My Creation from Beyond History and Life with the Little People, winner of The Native Writers Circle of the Americas First Book Award for Prose.

morgan chickasaw renaissance

A rich pictorial profile of the twentieth-century Chickasaw experience

Chickasaw Renaissance By Phillip Carroll Morgan Photographs by David G. Fitzgerald When Oklahoma achieved statehood in 1907, the U.S. government declared Chickasaw titles to tribal lands null and void. The Chickasaw Nation was, in effect, legally abolished. Yet for the next sixty years, the Chickasaws struggled to regain their sovereign identity, and eventually, in 1970, Congress enacted legislation allowing the Five Tribes, including the Chickasaws, to elect their own governing officers. In 1983, the Chickasaws adopted a new constitution for their nation. In Chickasaw Renaissance, Phillip Carroll Morgan profiles the experiences of the Chickasaw people during this tumultuous period in their history, from the dissolution of their government to the resurgence of their nation. A sequel to the award-winning book Chickasaw: Unconquered and Unconquerable, this equally beautiful volume features more than 100 new images by celebrated Oklahoma photographer David G. Fitzgerald. His stunning portraits of tribal elders and numerous other subjects are supplemented by historical photographs from the Chickasaw Nation archives. To construct his narrative, Morgan drew on the extensive research of a team of scholars, who interviewed Chickasaw elders and provided valuable information from tribal archives. The result is an enlightening exploration of the impact of changing federal policies on the Chickasaws and other Native tribes of Oklahoma, and a tribute to the resilience of these peoples as they grappled with the major events of the twentieth century.

lovegrove a nation in transition

Chronicles the political life of an important Chickasaw leader

A Nation in Tr ansition Douglas Henry Johnston and the Chickasaws, 1898–1939 By Michael Lovegrove Douglas Henry Johnston was governor of the Chickasaw Nation from 1898 to 1902 and from 1904 to 1939. His tenure in this position is the longest of any American Indian chief executive. In this much-anticipated biography, Michael Lovegrove chronicles Johnston’s remarkable political life, telling the story of how he led his people—with diplomacy and efficiency—through the devastating dissolution of tribal lands at the beginning of the twentieth century and through the contentious struggles in the three decades that followed. Drawing on a range of sources, Lovegrove shows the enormous impact Governor Johnston had on the development of the Chickasaw Nation. A mild-mannered, intellectually gifted statesman, he stood steadfast at the helm of his people, helping them navigate federal allotment during the Dawes Commission era at the turn of the century. In his capacity as the federally appointed Chickasaw governor after Oklahoma statehood in 1907, Johnston led the Chickasaw and Choctaw Treaty Rights Association, which successfully fought the State of Oklahoma’s efforts to tax allotment lands. The governor and his colleagues vigorously challenged these taxation initiatives in federal court, arguing that they violated the Dawes Act of 1887, the Curtis Act of 1898, and the Atoka Agreement of 1902. Fortunately, Johnston lived and led his people long enough to see new hope emerge in the Indian New Deal of the 1930s.
