ndrew J. Russell is primarily known as the man who photographed the famous “East and West Shaking Hands” image of the Golden Spike ceremony on May 10, 1869. He also took nearly one thousand other images that document almost every aspect of the construction of the Union Pacific Railroad. Across the Continent is the most detailed study to date of the life and work of an often-overlooked but prolific artist who contributed immensely not only to documentation of the railroad but also to the nation’s visualization of the American West and, earlier, the Civil War. The central focus in the book is on the large body of work Russell produced primarily to satisfy the needs of the Union Pacific. Daniel Davis posits that this set of Russell’s photos is best understood not through one or a handful of individual images, but as a photographic archive. The images celebrate working people—masons working on bridge foundations, freighters and their wagons, surveyors with their transits, engine crews posed on their engines, as well as tracklayers, laborers, cooks, machinists, carpenters, graders, teamsters, and clerks. Russell contributed to a golden age of western photography that visually introduced the American West to the nation, changing its public image from that of a Great American Desert to a place of apparently unlimited economic potential.

Daniel Davis is the photograph curator and associate librarian of Utah State University’s Special Collections and Archives.

“Davis gives readers a comprehensive look at who Andrew Russell was and what his movements were both before and after the Union Pacific project. Interesting and well written, the book is both profound and informative, underscoring the cultural significance of these images and of Russell’s body of work in general.” —Patricia LaBounty, Curator, Union Pacific Railroad Museum

Across the Continent

Being and Becoming Ute




The Story of an American Indian People Sondra G. Jones

The first comprehensive history of the Ute Indians across the vast environmental, cultural, international, continental, and political divides on which they lived


ondra Jones traces the metamorphosis of the Ute people from a widespread society of small, interrelated bands to sovereign, dependent nations that run extensive business enterprises and government services. Weaving together the history of all Ute groups in Colorado, Utah, and New Mexico, the narrative describes the many facets of their traditional culture. Jones emphasizes how the Utes adapted over four centuries to events and conflicts with non-Utes and non-Indians. Being and Becoming Ute examines the effects of colonial wars and commerce with Hispanic and American settlers; removal to reservations; battles over federally instigated termination, tribal identity, and membership; boarding and public school education; and the development of economic enterprises and political power. The book also explores modern Ute concerns, including social and medical issues, transformed religions, and perpetuation of Ute identity in the twenty-first century. The history of the Ute people is dynamic and evolving, revealing the resilience of an American Indian people.


Sondra G. Jones holds a PhD in history from the University of Utah, where she now teaches. She has published journal articles and books, including the award-winning Don Pedro León Luján: The Attack against Indian Slavery and Mexican Traders in Utah.

“Decades in the making, this sweeping narrative charts the history of the Ute people, showcasing their pragmatic adaptive strategies and exploring their challenges. Jones helps readers to understand tensions and differences of opinion within Ute society between full-bloods and mixed-bloods, modernizers and traditionalists, and the difficulty of maintaining a Ute identity and cultural essence in the face of mainstreaming material and cultural forces.” —Brian Cannon, author of The Awkward State of Utah: Coming of Age in the Nation, 1896–1945

Confessions of an Iyeska Viola Burnette

A Lakota woman's personal story illuminates the struggles and resilience of her people.


am an Iyeska and I am assimilated, but on my own terms. I choose when, where, and how I use the knowledge and skills I have learned. As long as we continue to teach our children and grandchildren the language, values, and traditions of the Lakota people, we will survive.”—from the book In her autobiography, Viola Burnette braids the history of the Lakota people with the story of her own life as an Iyeska, or mixed-race Indian. Bringing together her years growing up on a reservation, her work as a lawyer and legal advocate for Native peoples, and her woman’s perspective, she draws the reader into an intelligent and intimate conversation. The Fort Laramie treaties of 1851 and 1868 changed everything for the Sioux. When Burnette was born on the Rosebud Indian Reservation in the late 1930s, her people were still striving to make sense of how to live under the impoverished conditions created by the imposed land restrictions. Like most Native children at that time, she was forced by federal law to attend boarding school and assimilate into white culture. Her story reveals the resulting internal conflicts that she and her people faced in embracing their own identity in a world where those in authority taught that speaking Lakota and being Indian were wrong. After a difficult jump into adulthood, Burnette emerged from an abusive marriage and, while raising four children, went on to become an advocate for women subjected to domestic violence and, later, the first attorney general for the Rosebud Sioux Tribe.

The Civilian Conservation Corps in Utah Remembering Nine Years of Achievement, 1933–1942 Kenneth W. Baldridge

The only in-depth account of the myriad projects accomplished by the CCC in Utah


n 1932, unemployment in Utah was about 34 percent. Nearly every state west of the Mississippi River was struggling not only with unemployment but also with drought, erosion, and overgrazing. To solve these serious difficulties, President Franklin D. Roosevelt launched what would become arguably the most popular of his New Deal programs—the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC). From 1933 to 1942, the CCC employed three million young men on land-improvement projects, many of which are still used today. In this book, Kenneth Baldridge chronicles the work of the 10,000 men who served at Utah’s 116 CCC camps. With facts and anecdotes drawn from camp newspapers, government files, interviews, letters, and other sources, he situates the CCC within the political climate and details not only the projects but also the day-to-day aspects of camp life. For thirty dollars a month—of which twenty-five was sent home to their folks—these young recruits planted trees; built roads, bridges, dams, and trails; fought fires; battled pests and noxious weeds; and erected cabins, campgrounds, amphitheaters, reservoirs, and more. Today the CCC is credited with creating greater public awareness and appreciation of the outdoors. This volume documents the public good created by the CCC, provides an extensive bibliography, and is illustrated with numerous historic and modern photos.

Stephen H. Lekson

A thought-provoking analysis that challenges preconceptions of Chaco Canyon and advocates a new approach for interpreting prehistory in the Southwest


teve Lekson argues that, for over a century, southwestern archaeology got the history of the ancient Southwest wrong. He advocates for an entirely new approach—one that separates archaeological thought in the Southwest from its anthropological roots and moves toward more historical ways of thinking. Focusing on the enigmatic monumental center at Chaco Canyon, the book provides a historical analysis of how Southwest archaeology confined itself, how it can break out of those confines, and how it can proceed into the future. Lekson suggests that much of what we believe about the ancient Southwest should be radically revised. Looking past old preconceptions brings a different Chaco Canyon into view: more than an eleventh-century Pueblo ritual center, Chaco was a political capital with nobles and commoners, a regional economy, and deep connections to Mesoamerica. By getting the history right, a very different science of the ancient Southwest becomes possible and archaeology can be reinvented as a very different discipline.


Stephen H. Lekson is curator of archaeology and professor of anthropology at the Museum of Natural History, University of Colorado, Boulder. He has directed more than twenty archaeological projects throughout the Southwest and has published widely. His most recent books include A History of the Ancient Southwest and Chaco Meridian.

“Irreverent, funny, unique, and insightful. You can’t read this book and think about southwestern (or any other) archaeology in the same way. Lekson claims this is his last book; let’s hope he is, once again, just kidding.” —Robert L. Kelly, author of The Fifth Beginning: What Six Million Years of Human History Can Tell Us about Our Future

“This is an important book, quite unlike any other in Southwest archaeology. Its singularity stems firstly from its blunt and irreverent honesty regarding issues—both intellectual and ethical—that most scholars only handle with kid gloves, if at all. The book will have a vigorous life as fodder for heated debate in graduate seminars and conference sessions. It is a brave and deeply iconoclastic volume.” —Severin Fowles, author of An Archaeology of Doings: Secularism and the Study of Pueblo Religion

A Study of Southwestern Archaeology




Debunking Creation Myths about America’s Public Lands John D. Leshy

2018 Wallace Stegner Lecture


n recent times several creation myths have gained currency about how the United States government came to own and manage—for broad, mostly protective purposes—nearly one-third of the nation’s land. Controversies such as President Trump’s shrinking the boundaries of Grand Staircase–Escalante and Bears Ears National Monuments and the armed takeover of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Oregon by a ragtag militia group protesting U.S. ownership have brought these myths to the forefront, suggesting that public lands are a kind of centrifugal force driving Americans apart. Over the nation’s long history, however, the opposite has nearly always been the case. In this essay, John Leshy debunks the myths that have contributed to the often polarized character of contemporary discussions of public lands. Recounting numerous episodes throughout American history, he demonstrates how public lands have generally served to unify the country, not divide it. Steps to safeguard these lands for all have almost always enjoyed wide, deep, bipartisan support. Leshy argues that America’s vast public lands are priceless assets, a huge success story, and a credit to the workings of our national government. But because these lands remain fully subject to the political process, each generation of Americans must effectively decide upon their future. This lecture was presented on March 14, 2018, at the 23rd annual symposium of the Wallace Stegner Center for Land, Resources and the Environment at the S. J. Quinney College of Law, University of Utah.

Edited by Leslie Miller and Louise Excell with Christopher Smart

Weighs the dynamic and complex relationships between humans and wild creatures in the western United States


eimagining a Place for the Wild contains a diverse collection of personal stories that describe encounters with the remaining wild creatures of the American West and critical essays that reveal wildlife’s essential place in western landscapes. Written by historians, journalists, biologists, ranchers, artists, philosophers, teachers, and conservationists, these narratives expose the complex challenges faced by wild animals and those devoted to understanding them. Whether discussing keystone species like grizzly bears and gray wolves or microfauna swimming in the thermal depths of geysers, these accounts reflect the authors’ expertise as well as their wonder and respect for wild nature. The writers do more than inform our sensibilities; their narratives examine both humanity’s conduct and its capacity for empathy toward other life. This collection sprang from the Reimagine Western Landscapes Symposium held at the University of Utah’s Taft-Nicholson Environmental Humanities Education Center in Centennial Valley, Montana.


Leslie Miller directs the Reimagine Western Landscapes Initiative. She has served on the University of Utah College of Humanities Partnership Board since 2003. Louise Excell is emeritus professor of English and humanities at Dixie State University. She serves on the boards of the Virgin River Land Preservation Association and the Reimagine Western Landscapes Initiative.

Christopher Smart has been a Utah journalist since 1983. Formally educated in biology, he has long been interested in the wild and the meaning it holds for culture and people.

“Leslie Miller believes we can use these stories and essays to ‘reimagine western landscapes.’ And she asks us to do so in ways that ‘contribute to the welfare of wild nature in the 21st century.’ This is a tall order. But the writers in her book map our path. Jeremy Schmidt reminds us that ‘wildness is everywhere. It is part of us … the matrix in which we live.’ Erin Halcomb prays ‘for restraint: To stop myself from taking and doing.’ And Harvey Locke sums up our challenge: ‘To right the wrongs done to Nature, to native people, and to ourselves in a place that we call home.’ So, what are you going to do?” —Stephen Trimble, author of Bargaining for Eden: The Fight for the Last Open Spaces in the West

The Salt Lake Papers

From the Years in the Earthscapes of Utah Edward Lueders

These engaging essays examine ways of knowing through time and place


nce again cast in the companionable style of journal entries and notes that readers enjoyed in Lueders’s 1977 classic The Clam Lake Papers, this new investigation into language and ways of knowing follows the author’s move from the north woods of Wisconsin to the Intermountain West of Utah. The Salt Lake Papers is divided into two sections by location and time. Book One reflects the central geophysical presence of the Great Salt Lake, in view from Leuders’s home and the University of Utah campus where he studied and taught. Researched and composed during the 1980s, it is published here for the first time. Book Two begins with his retirement to the “earthscapes” of the Torrey–Capitol Reef area of southern Utah and contemplates the Colorado River system. Hydrology thus provides both the physical and the metaphysical basis for the author’s reflective insights and for the natural flow of his advancing thought. Beautifully written, The Salt Lake Papers, in varied ways, speaks to the necessity of the humanities in the modern age. At its heart, Lueders’s small book of intellectual musings explores place and the ways landscape shapes what is observant in each of us.


Edward Lueders is a jazz pianist, WWII veteran, poet, and retired professor of English at the University of Utah. He is the author of The Clam Lake Papers: A Winter in the North Woods and the editor of several volumes, including Writing Natural History: Dialogues with Authors.

“Edward Lueders’ oracular meditation, informed by nine decades of intense observation, takes his readers on a profound journey through the intersections of mind and matter, nature and culture, humanities and science. The clarity and conundrums inspired by Utah’s red rock beauty form the backdrop to a singular human story with resounding collective echoes.” —Robert Newman, president, National Humanities Center

“This will be a special book for some people. It was for me. It transfers wisdom. It inspires thought. It summarizes one man’s journey to appreciate landscapes and how they have impacted his sense of being human. Dr. Lueders, with great consideration, shares his view of the purpose of the human mind in humanities and science alike.” —Genevieve Atwood, founder and chief education officer, Earth Science Education; and emeritus adjunct associate professor of geography, University of Utah

Chasing Good Sense A Boy’s Life on the Frontier Homer McCarty Edited by Coralie M. Beyers

Recounts the rollicking adventures of boyhood on the Utah frontier


n this creative memoir, Homer McCarty adopts the voice of seven-year-old Buck to recollect his own life growing up in rugged southern Utah Territory in the late 1800s. Buck’s reflections, gathered from fragments of memory and freely embellished, collectively create an engaging look at life on the frontier. In the spirit of Huck Finn, Buck embarks on adventures and mischief with his loyal friend, Earl. Naïve, eager, and inquisitive, he seeks to make sense of his world. McCarty’s portrayal of the period is often humorous, capturing the intimacy of place and family through a boy’s eyes. McCarty completed this work in 1948. Had it not been for a series of fortuitous events and the dedication of his granddaughters, including Coralie Beyers, these pages would have been lost. Thanks to her efforts, her grandfather’s lively, entertaining book is now available for readers to relish and enjoy. ALSO OF INTEREST

Homer McCarty (1868–1954) was a schoolteacher, mineral surveyor, owner of a drugstore and mercantile, and editor of the Sevier Valley Sun. He retired in 1940 and spent the remainder of his years writing. Coralie McCarty Beyers (1926–2017), granddaughter of Homer McCarty, was an English professor at Utah State University. An author, poet, and gifted artist, she is the editor of Man Meets Grizzly, which recounts her maternal grandfather’s stories of bear encounters during the settling of the western frontier.

The Earth Will Appear as the Garden of Eden Essays on Mormon Environmental History

Edited by Jedediah S. Rogers and Matthew C. Godfrey

Illuminates Mormon intellectual history through the lens of environmental history.



Thomas G. Alexander Rebecca Andersen

lthough scholars have increasingly investigated the impact of religion and religious movements on nature, studies of the interactions between Mormons and the natural environment are few. This volume applies the perspectives of environmental history to Mormonism, providing both a scholarly introduction to Mormon environmental history and a spur for historians to consider the role of nature in the Mormon past. Mormons have interacted with nature in significant ways—whether perceiving in it a place to find God, wildness needing domestication and control, uncorrupted spaces in which to build communities to usher in the Second Coming, or a world brimming with natural resources to ensure economic well-being. The essays in this volume—written by leading scholars in both environmental and Mormon history—explore how nature has influenced Mormon beliefs and how these beliefs inform Mormons’ encounters with nature. Introducing overarching environmental ideas, contributors examine specific aspects of nature and Mormon theology to glean new insights into the Mormon experience.

Intended Actions, Unintended Consequences Gregory A. Prince

The recent history and ramifications of LDS Church policies toward LGBT people


he Mormon Church entered the public square on LGBT issues by joining forces with traditionalmarriage proponents in Hawaii in 1993. Since then, the church has been a significant player in the ongoing saga of LGBT rights within the United States and at times has carried decisive political clout. Gregory Prince draws from over 50,000 pages of public records, private documents, and interview transcripts to capture the past half-century of the Mormon Church’s attitudes on homosexuality. Initially that principally involved only its own members, but with its entry into the Hawaiian political arena, the church signaled an intent to shape the outcome of the marriage equality battle. That involvement reached a peak in 2008 during California’s fight over Proposition 8, which many came to call the “Mormon Proposition.” In 2015, when the Supreme Court made marriage equality the law of the land, the Mormon Church turned its attention inward, declaring same-sex couples “apostates” and denying their children access to key Mormon rites of passage, including the blessing (christening) of infants and the baptism of children.


Gregory A. Prince's avocation in history has led him to write dozens of articles and three books, including the award-winning volumes David O. McKay and the Rise of Modern Mormonism (coauthored with Wm Robert Wright) and Leonard Arrington and the Writing of Mormon History.

People and Culture in Ice Age Americas New Dimensions in Paleoamerican Archaeology

Edited by Rafael Suárez and Ciprian F. Ardelean

Surveys recent Paleoindian research within the Americas, drawing attention to archaeological work in Latin America


his edited volume covers recent Paleoamerican research and site excavations from Patagonia to Canada. Contributors discuss the peopling of the Americas, early American assemblages, lifeways, and regional differences. Many scholars present current data previously unavailable in English. Chapters are organized south to north in an attempt to shake the usual north-centric focus of Pleistocene and Early Holocene archaeological studies and to bring to the forefront the many fascinating discoveries being made in southern latitudes. The diversity of approaches over a large geographic expanse generates discussion that prompts a re-evaluation of predominant paradigms about how the expansion of Homo sapiens in the Western Hemisphere took place.

“The peopling of the Americas is a perennial hot topic that tends to excite broad interest both in the discipline and from the public. I am not aware of any recent book on the topic with the spatial or topical breadth of this important volume, or with the same south to north orientation. People and Culture in Ice Age Americas should be on the shelf of everyone seriously interested in the earliest inhabitants of the New World.” —Daniel Sandweiss, professor of anthropology and quaternary and climate studies, University of Maine

The Archaeology of California’s Pecho Coast Terry L. Jones and Brian F. Codding

The first synthesis of archaeological research along the Pecho Coast in 45 years


he California coastline has long been of interest to archaeologists. This book directs attention to the largely ignored Pecho Coast, a rugged, isolated 20-km long peninsula between modern-day Morro Bay and Pismo Beach. Archaeological work along this stretch was last synthesized in 1972. Jones and Codding now bring together the extensive contract work and field school studies of the intervening years, shedding new light on the region’s early inhabitants. The first people of the Pecho Coast were part-time residents who exploited shellfish, fish, and marine birds. During the mission era, fishing sustained the Native community as, for the first time, individuals became fully sedentary, foraging within a limited radius to avoid contact with the Spanish. This record reveals a unique story of local adaptation, anthropogenic habitat change, social differentiation and, ultimately, resistance to colonial invasion ALSO OF INTEREST

“The authors work hard to write up in detail the results of their excavations (and others), creating single component assemblages that will be available for other people to use long into the future. Jesse Jennings would approve of the Jones-Codding effort.” —William Hildebrandt, founding president, Far Western Anthropological Research Group, Inc.

“Jones and Codding are to be commended for compiling, synthesizing, and interpreting data collected along the Pecho Coast since Greenwood’s seminal work published in 1972. This was no small task. Regional syntheses are few and far between along the California Central Coast and this book will be an important contribution.” —Clayton G.

Foragers on America’s Western Edge




The Crimson Cowboys The Remarkable Odyssey of the 1931 Claflin Emerson Expedition

Jerry D. Spangler and James M. Aton

The first full account of the journey and discoveries of an archaeological expedition into the rugged American Southwest


n 1931 a group from Harvard University’s Peabody Museum accomplished something that had never been attempted in the history of American archaeology—a six-week, four-hundred-mile horseback survey of prehistoric sites through some of the West’s most rugged terrain. The expedition was successful, but a report on the findings was never completed. What should have been one of the great archaeological stories in American history was relegated to boxes and files in the basement of the Peabody Museum at Harvard. Now, based on over a thousand pages of documents and over four hundred photographs, this book recounts the remarkable day-to-day adventures of this crew of one professor, five students, and three Utah guides who braved heat, fatigue, and the dangerous canyon wilderness to reveal vestiges of the Fremont culture in the Tavaputs Plateau and Uinta Basin areas. To better tell this story, authors Spangler and Aton undertook extensive fieldwork to confirm the sites; their recent photographs and those of the original expedition are shared on these pages.

Nationalism and the Commemoration of Saints in Turkey Mark Soileau

How secularist Turkey turned Sufi saints into icons of a national humanism


hen the Ottoman Empire met its demise in the early twentieth century, the new Republic of Turkey closed down the Sufi orders, rationalizing that they were antimodern. Yet the nascent nation, faced with defining its cultural heritage, soon began to promote the legacies of three Sufi saints: Mevlana Celaleddin Rumi, Hacı Bektaş Veli, and Yunus Emre. Their Turkish ethnicity, along with universalist themes found in their poetry and legends—of love, peace, fellowship, and tolerance—became the focus of their commemoration. With this reinterpretation of their characters—part of a broader secularist project—these saints are considered the great Turkish humanists. Their veneration came to play an important role in the nationalist formulation of Turkish culture, but the universalism of their humanism has exposed fissures in society concerning the place of religion in the nation. Humanist Mystics is the first book to examine Islam and secularism within Turkish nationalist ideology through the lens of commemorated saints. Soileau surveys Anatolian and Turkish religious and political history as the context for his closer attention to the lives and influence of these three Sufi saints. By comparing premodern hagiographic and scholarly representations with twentieth-century monographs, literary works, artistic media, and commemorative ceremonies, he shows how the saints have been transformed into humanist mystics and how this change has led to debates about their character and relevance.

Mark Soileau received his PhD in religious studies from the University of California, Santa Barbara. He is currently associate professor of anthropology at Hacettepe University in Ankara, Turkey.

“Focusing on the place held by three immensely popular Sufi saints— Rumi, Yunus Emre, and Haji Bektash—in the Turkish imagination, Soileau provides a fascinating insight into the religious sensibilities and social and political conflicts of modern Turkey. He perceptively reconstructs contestations about the nature of their sainthood that allowed socialists and nationalists, Alevis and Sunnis, humanists and Islamists to appropriate these saints as icons symbolising their own world view.” —Martin van Bruinessen, co-author of Sufism and the “Modern” in Islam

Imagining the Atacama Desert A Five-Hundred-Year Journey of Discovery

Richard V. Francaviglia


Moving through the settings of her life—red rock canyons, aspen forests, mountains, and cities—Jana Richman probes her internal landscape. In essays both personal and universal, she eschews answers for quiet reflection on questions: In a culture demanding that every voice be heard, how do we make sense of the resulting roar? What if we all sat in stillness for a while? These wide-ranging meditations explore fear, kindness, ignorance, darkness, wildness, compassion, solitude, loneliness, and more—always informing internal landscapes with external geography. Monsoonal rains in the carved slot canyons of the Escalante, the eroticism of dirt on skin in a remote slice of the Grand Canyon, defiance of academic authority, and the curled, arthritic fingers of her mother and grandmothers, combine to reveal the realities that make us human and fallible and blessed.

Back Cast

Widely regarded as the driest place on earth, the seemingly desolate Atacama Desert of Chile is a place steeped in intrigue and haunted by collective memories. This book, based on archival research and the author’s personal field work, brings together the works of geographers, historians, anthropologists, botanists, geologists, astronomers, novelists, and others to offer a nuanced understanding of this complex desert landscape. In addition to a rich set of narratives, the book features 115 images—historical maps, photographs, and natural history illustrations, most in full color—to tell a more complete and compelling story. 336 pp., 7 x 10 eBook 978-1-60781-611-9 Hardback 978-1-60781-610-2 $29.95



In a Rugged Land Ansel Adams, Dorothea Lange, and the Three Mormon Towns Collaboration, 1953-1954 James Swensen


In a Rugged Land examines the history and content of the two photographers’ forgotten collaboration Three Mormon Towns. Adams’s and Lange’s photographs, extant letters, and personal memories provide a window into an important moment in their careers as James Swenson seeks to understand why a joint project for Life magazine in the 1950s that once held such promise ended in disillusionment and is now little more than a footnote in their illustrative biographies. Swensen’s in-depth research and interpretation helps make sense of what they did and places their efforts alongside others who were also exploring the particular qualities of the Mormon village at that time. Includes more than 220 photographs. 432 pp., 9 x 10 eBook 978-1-60781-629-4 Paper 978-1-60781-628-7 $34.95

Decolonizing Mormonism

Approaching a Postcolonial Zion Edited by Gina Colvin and Joanna Brooks Decolonizing Mormonism brings together the work of fifteen scholars from around the globe who critically reflect on global Mormon experiences and American-Mormon cultural imperialism. Indigenous, minority, and Global South Mormons ask in unison: what is the relationship between Mormonism and imperialism and where must the Mormon movement go in order to achieve its long-cherished dream of equality for all in Zion? Their stories are both heartbreaking and heartening and provide a rich resource for thinking about the future of Mormon missiology and the possibilities inherent in the work of Mormon contextual theology. 360 pp., 6 x 9 eBook 978-1-60781-609-6 Paper 978-1-60781-608-9 $24.95

Sex and Death on the Western Emigrant Trail The Biology of Three American Tragedies Donald K. Grayson The plights of three emigrant groups, the Donner Party and Martin and Willey handcart companies, are well documented. However, this book is the first to examine the tragedies in terms of biology. Grayson shows that who lived or died can largely be explained by age, sex, and family ties. His investigation reveals what happens when our cultural mechanisms for dealing with famine and extreme cold are reduced to only what our bodies can provide within structured social contexts. His results are surprising and not always intuitive as he investigates who survived in these life threatening situations. 288 pp., 6 x 9 eBook 978-1-60781-602-7 Paper 978-1-60781-601-0 $29.95


Petroglyphs, Pictographs, and Projections

Fire Otherwise

Native American Rock Art in the Contemporary Cultural Landscape

Edited by Cynthia T. Fowler and James R. Welch

D. Shane Miller

Richard A. Rogers

Winner of the Don D. and Catherine S. Fowler Prize

Recent decades have seen an upsurge in visitation to rock art sites as well as an increase in commercial reproduction of rock art and attempts to understand the meaning and function of that art within the indigenous cultures that produced it. What motivates this growing interest and what do these uses of Native American petroglyphs and pictographs reveal about contemporary cultural dynamics? Focusing on the southwestern U.S., this book critically examines the contemporary implications of the interpretation, appropriation, commodification, and management of indigenous rock art.

Fire is a daunting human ecological challenge. Fire Otherwise: Ethnobiology of Burning for a Changing World advocates for a more inclusive and pluralistic fire ecology, a shift from the paradigmatic globalized version of fire science and management toward research and management that embraces anthropogenic fire regimes and broader understandings of the ways humans interact with fire. The authors present new evaluations of human interactions with fires in contexts of changing environmental conditions. Through deep description and analysis of knowledge and practices enacted by local communities who ignite, manage, and extinguish fires, this collection of case studies supports proactive local and regional efforts to adapt amidst continually changing social and ecological circumstances.

Shane Miller argues that the origins of plant domestication lie within the context of a boom/bust cycle that culminated in the mid-Holocene, when hunter-gatherers were able to intensively exploit shellfish, deer, oak, and hickory. After this resource “boom” ended, some groups shifted to other plants in place of oak and hickory. Miller contends that the appearance of domesticated plants in eastern North America, rather than simply being an example of necessity as the mother of invention, is the result of individuals adjusting to periods of both abundance and shortfall driven by climate change.

Ethnobiology of Burning for a Changing World



Turkey’s July 15th Coup What Happened and Why


Edited by M. Hakan Yavuz and Bayram Balci On July 15, 2016, a faction of the Turkish military attempted to overthrow the government of President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan. The Turkish government blamed the unsuccessful coup attempt on Gülenists, adherents of an Islamist movement led by Fethullah Gülen. They had helped elect Erdoğan and his AK Party, with the goal of bringing an ostensibly “soft” version of Islam into the secular Turkish government. In alliance with the AK Party, Gülenists steadfastly increased their representation in various government institutions, including the military, the police, and the judiciary. This volume focuses on the historical and sociopolitical contexts of the Gülen Movement’s origins and political ascendancy along with its possible role in the failed coup. 360 pp., 6 x 9 eBook 978-1-60781-607-2 Paper 978-1-60781-606-5 $24.95

New Children of Israel

Emerging Jewish Communities in an Era of Globalization Nathan P. Devir

Religion, Conflict, and Peacemaking

An Interdisciplinary Conversation Edited by Muriel Schmid

In the last century, the tragic events of the Holocaust and the subsequent founding of the state of Israel brought about tremendous changes for Jewish communities all over the world. This book explores what may be the next watershed moment for the Jews: the inclusion of millions of people from developing nations who self-define as Jewish but who have no historical ties with established centers of Jewish life. These emerging groups are expanding notions of what it means to be Jewish. This comparative ethnographic study, the first of its kind, presents in-depth analyses of the backgrounds, motivations, and sociohistorical contexts of emerging Jewish communities in Cameroon, Ghana, India, and other postcolonial locales.

Discussions of the relationship between religion and violence have been on the rise since 9/11. Conversations have also focused on how religion can mediate conflict and help build peace. This volume offers a diversity of approaches to the subject, gathering essays from a cross-section of prominent scholars studying the role of religion in peacemaking. While the contributors acknowledge the role of religion in generating conflict, they emphasize the part religion can play in conflict resolution. Employing examples and viewpoints drawn from diverse faith traditions, academic practices, and cultural backgrounds, contributors seek to foster respectful dialogue and debate by exploring the complex dynamic that interconnects religion, violence, and peace.
