Ghosts of Glen Canyon History beneath Lake Powell Revised Edition C. Gregory Crampton Foreword by Edward Abbey

Drift down the Colorado River through Glen Canyon and explore the people and places that encompass the history of this majestic canyon before it drowned in the rising waters of Lake Powell. Author Gregory Crampton led the historical investigations of Glen and San Juan canyons from 1957 to 1963 under contract with the National Park Service. The objective was to locate and record historical sites that would be lost to the rising waters of the reservoir. This book records that effort. First published in 1986, this edition has been revised to include several new “ghosts” of Glen Canyon and features a never-beforepublished foreword by Edward Abbey. It showcases stunning color photographs by Philip Hyde and includes hundreds of black-andwhite photographs taken by the original salvage crews. This informative guide to the historic treasures of Glen Canyon includes numbered maps keyed to each location. It is a book for both the armchair traveler and the lake enthusiast eager for a journey through the past to a place few had the privilege to know.

“Enjoyment of the vast lake by any visitor can be immeasurably enhanced by keeping a copy of Ghosts of Glen Canyon close at hand.” —Stan Jones (“Mr. Lake Powell”), John Wesley Powell Memorial Museum C. Gregory Crampton (1911–1995) was a professor of history at the University of Utah for more than thirty years. He and his crews made thirteen trips down Glen Canyon identifying, documenting, and photographing the evidence of human experience there. He was the author of Standing Up Country, Land of Living Rock, and numerous other books on the history of the Southwest.

Splendid Heritage

Perspectives on American Indian Arts John and Marva Warnock Edited by Clinton Nagy Foreword by Robert Redford

&#!%' #%&#')&"! %!!!%'&


The Splendid Heritage catalog of American Indian artifacts represents the commitment of American collectors to share the beauty and significance of hundreds of ethnographic treasures with a worldwide audience. Originally exhibited as the Akicita Collection at the Southwest Museum and as Splendid Heritage at the Wheelwright and Eiteljorg Museums, the expanded collection of artifacts will be on display at the Utah Museum of Fine Arts beginning in February 2009. This catalog became a reality through the thoughtful, collaborative efforts of John and Marva Warnock and several other collectors of rare and unusual artifacts, the majority of which were produced by Plains and Eastern Woodlands cultures. The passionate respect and attention to detail of these collectors is reflected in descriptions and provenance for every artifact, presented in magnificent full-page color images and accompanied by essays from internationally recognized scholars. The contributors celebrate the artifacts not merely for their singular qualities as fine art, but also for their significance in the religious and political lives of their original owners.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Outstanding examples of any art tradition will always find their collectors, but a truly great collection derives much of its importance from its ability to illustrate successive stages in the history of an art tradition. John and Marva Warnock not only acquired such a great collection, but in exhibition and internet wizardry they invite us to share in a fascinating experience.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Dr. T. J.

Western History

The University of Utah Press is honored to announce a co-publishing program with the Utah State Historical Society. The initial undertaking brings to life three outof-print volumes covering the numerous accounts of the exploration of the Colorado River between 1869 and 1875. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Any historian of the American West will agree that the voyages of John Wesley Powell down the Green and Colorado rivers in 1869 and again in 1871 are among the most important and meaningful expeditions ever undertaken in the region. Not only were they Homerian epics of exploration, complete with danger, hardship, and even tragedy, but genuine scientific work was accomplished: blank spaces on the map were filled in, canyons and features were named, the entire expanse of land encompassed by the river basins was taken from the realm of obscurity and mystery and made a real part of the United States. But what makes the Powell journeys unique among such sagas is the fact that they were so well documented. Most exploring expeditions of this type are recorded by the leader or at most one or two others; among the 21 men who were part of Powellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s two trips, no less than 17 of them kept journals or wrote long, detailed letters to family members or to their hometown newspapers recounting their adventures and impressions. Thus the whole epic can be seen not just through the eyes of the leader, but from the standpoint of the people who made it happen. In the 1940s, the Utah State Historical Society did scholars and historians an immense favor by gathering virtually all of these accounts into two bound volumes, but these are long out of print and have since become collectorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s items, scarce and expensive. Now the University of Utah Press has stepped up and reprinted these essential works in new editions, thus earning the gratitude of a whole new generation of readers, historians, and river runners.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Roy Webb, J.

Diary of Almon Harris Thompson Explorations of the Colorado River of the West and Its Tributaries, 1871â&#x20AC;&#x201C;1875 Edited by Herbert E. Gregory Co-published with the Utah State Historical Society

In some respects the most important of the early Colorado River exploration journals, the diaries of Almon Harris Thompson can naturally be divided into three sections: the navigation of the Green and Colorado rivers; the exploratory traverse from Kanab to the mouth of the Fremont River; and the systematic mapping of central, eastern, and southern Utah and northern Arizona. Thompsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s maps of the Colorado drainage basin, including the first maps of southern Utah and the canyons of the Green and Colorado rivers, place him in the front rank of geographic explorers and they proved invaluable to the later Powell expedition. Originally published in 1939 in volume seven of the Utah Historical Quarterly, Thompsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s journal is reprinted here for the first time in seventy years. Almon Harris Thompson (1839â&#x20AC;&#x201C;1906) was brother-in-law to Major Powell and joined the expeditions as chief assistant, geographer, and topographer. Following the expeditions he served as chief geographer for the United States Geological Survey and was a leader in the founding of the National Geographic Society.

The Exploration of the Colorado River in 1869 and 1871â&#x20AC;&#x201C;1872 Biographical Sketches and Original Documents of the First Powell Expedition of 1869 and the Second Powell Expedition of 1871â&#x20AC;&#x201C;1872 Edited by William Culp Darrah, Ralph V. Chamberlin, and Charles Kelly Co-published with the Utah State Historical Society

Volume fifteen of the Utah Historical Quarterly was primarily devoted to Powellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s initial reconnaissance of the canyons of the Green and Colorado rivers, an expedition that would prove to be the last great exploration through unknown country in the continental United States. Powell and nine companions launched from Green River Station, Wyoming, on May 24, 1869, embarking on a journey that would become a race against starvation and grow tragic with the deaths of three of the party at the hands of the Shivwits (Paiute) Indians. The maps, field notes, and journals of this first exploration would guide Powell when he returned to the canyons in 1871 for a second expedition. Major John Wesley Powell (1834â&#x20AC;&#x201C;1902) fought for the Union in the Civil War. He later served as director of the Bureau of Ethnology at the Smithsonian and was the second director of the United States Geological Survey. George Young Bradley (1836â&#x20AC;&#x201C;1885) left his position with the U.S. Infantry to join Powellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first expedition as chief boatman and to assist in geological work. Walter Henry Powell (1842â&#x20AC;&#x201C;1915) was invited on the expedition by his brother in hopes it would help him recover from the mental and emotional turmoil he suffered as a prisoner of war during the Civil War. His July 3, 1869 letter to the Chicago Evening Journal is reprinted here. Oramel G. Howland (1883â&#x20AC;&#x201C;1869) was tasked by Powell with mapping the river and taking notes throughout the expedition. He was one of three men killed by Indians. John C. Sumner (1840â&#x20AC;&#x201C;1907) was a first-rate marksman and an excellent manager of the expeditionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lead boat. Francis Marion Bishop (1843â&#x20AC;&#x201C;1933) joined the second expedition as topographer, making the first map of the Colorado River based upon actual field measurements and data.



The Exploration of the Colorado River and the High Plateaus of Utah by the Second Powell Expedition of 1871â&#x20AC;&#x201C;1872 Edited by Herbert E. Gregory, William Culp Darrah, and Charles Kelly Co-published with the Utah State Historical Society The Second Powell Colorado River Exploration, consisting of eleven men and three boats at the time of launch, departed from Green River Station, Wyoming, on May 22, 1871. Most members kept journals, and this volume contains the writings of three men, Stephen Vandiver Jones, John F. Steward, and Walter Clement Powell, as well as excerpts from the journals of John Wesley Powell. Taken together, they provde diverse points of view about the second expedition, both in terms of its human components and in its scientific labors. Stephen Vandiver Jones (1840â&#x20AC;&#x201C;1920) left his position as a principal in Washburn, Illinois, to serve as assistant topographer on the second expedition. He wrote relatively little about himself or his companions in his journals, choosing instead to focus his records on the typical tasks of a topographer: instrumental observations, sketches, and mathematical calculations. John F. Steward (1841â&#x20AC;&#x201C;1915) joined the Powell expedition as assistant geologist, but he was forced to resign his post when the exertion required by the exploratory work combined with a rheumatic affliction and an old war injury to nearly disable him. His journal is frank, honest, and informative, and his technical geological notes surpassed on occasion the detail of even Major Powell. Walter Clement Powell (1850â&#x20AC;&#x201C;1883) was first cousin of Major Powell and joined the expedition as assistant to E. O. Beaman, the official photographer. His journal focused on the personalities rather than the science of the expedition, and his picturesque and lively entries provide the fullest understanding of the day-today joys and sorrows, achievements and frustrations of the expedition.

VII People are leaving every other day it seems. No. Not leaving. Leaving me. All the difference there: falling or being pushed. Old ache re-finds me, in the way aches do: a bloom inside the chest that hums its hot fragrance to every sense, till nothing isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hunger. Nothing isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t loss. The new Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gone already too, the sum of him dismantling, as time begins to trickle, flow, between set features, drifting landscape that was briefly home.

Elite Craft Producers, Artists, and Warriors at Aguateca Lithic Analysis Kazuo Aoyama

Volume Two of Monographs of the Aguateca Archaeological Project First Phase Takeshi Inomata and Daniela Triadan, general editors This archaeological report centers on findings at Aguateca, a unique site in the Petexbatun region of the southern Mayan lowlands that was unexpectedly attacked in AD 810. The subsequent rapid abandonment and burning of many of the elite and nonelite residences at the site provide archaeologists with an encapsulated record of domestic and political activities on the last day of occupation. The in situ artifact assemblages from use and storage structures enable the study of specific activities and allow them to be addressed in depth owing to the precise spatial patterning of the assemblages, which differ significantly from those of gradually abandoned sites. Elite Craft Producers, Artists, and Warriors at Aguateca uses the excavation data from twelve structures and various use areas to investigate artistic and craft production activities by elite men and women and warriors in Classic Maya society. Specifically, Aoyama focuses on detailed use-wear analysis of stone tools by employing high-power microscopy to address production, warfare, and the domestic and ritual lives of the Maya. He provides descriptions and discussion of over ten thousand lithic artifacts from the Aguateca site, which was a center of both utilitarian and luxury goods. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A fine piece of lithic scholarship that advances knowledge of the Classic Maya elite in a number of important domains.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Payson Sheets, University of Colorado at Boulder Kazuo Aoyama is professor of anthropology and member of the faculty of humanities at Ibaraki University in Ibaraki, Japan.

Edited by Brenda J. Bowser and MarĂ­a Nieves ZedeĂąo Foundations of Archaeological Inquiry James M. Skibo, series editor In the broadest sense this book is concerned with describing and explaining how particular places contain the key elements necessary for understanding the social worlds constructed, maintained, and modified by those who once inhabited them. This is achieved through the investigation of biographical, topographic, geopolitical, ideological, cosmological, and mnemonic facets of place, beginning with processes of place making and continuing with the development of networks among and between places and broader landscapes. Diverse spatial and temporal contexts in two culture areasâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Mesoamerica and the Greater Southwestâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;serve as backdrops for nine chapters in which fourteen contributors show how place is an ideal starting point to begin unraveling the human past.

However, substantial changes in the Arctic environment are not solely modern phenomena. The period between AD 900 and 1400 witnessed some of the most dynamic and variable arctic climates since the last Ice Age. Throughout the period from the Medieval Climatic Anomaly (an unusually warm period) to the Little Ice Age, this region also saw two of the greatest migrations in human history, an unprecedented level of warfare among hunters, the rise and fall of widespread cultures, hemispheric trade networks, and the beginnings of todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s indigenous northern peoples.

Shifting Sands

Touching the Past

BYU Museum of Peoples and Cultures Occasional Paper No. 13

BYU Museum of Peoples and Cultures Popular Series 5

The Archaeology of Sand Hollow Richard K. Talbot and Lane D. Richens

Hidden beneath the beautiful shifting dunes within the Sand Hollow Basin of southwestern Utah are thousands of campsites dating from the Early Archaic period into Historic times. The sites attest to life in a marginal environment, where small groups of people moved outward from the nearby Virgin River into the surrounding landscape, seasonally exploiting a surprisingly rich variety of plants and animals. Sites range from short-term, hearth-centered camps that were occupied for hours or days, to some wickiupfocused occupations that lasted for weeks and even months. This report summarizes archaeological, geomorphological, botanical, and climatological studies that have expanded our understanding of Native American land use and subsistence in this hot desert environment. Lane Richens is a senior staff archaeologist with the Office of Public Archaeology at Brigham Young University. Richard Talbot is director of the Office of Public Archaeology at Brigham Young University.

Ritual, Religion, and Trade of Casas Grandes Edited by Glenna Nielsen-Grimm and Paul Stavast

The florescence of the Casas Grandes culture (AD 11501300) was arguable the most complex society to develop in the American Southwest. Centered at PaquimĂŠ in Chihuahua, Mexico, this desert culture influenced development throughout the Southwest. What caused its collapse is not known, but by the arrival of the Spanish in the 1500s, PaquimĂŠ was in ruins. This volume explores Casas Grandes ideology, pottery, sport, and trade relations with other areas of the New World. To many, the Casas Grandes culture is of most interest because of its pottery, characterized by beautifully crafted effigy vessels and pottery jars with intricately painted, geometric maze like patterns. This volume includes a full-color catalog of 125 vessels that comprise the Museum of Peoples and Culturesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Casas Grandes pottery collection. Also included is a field guide for identifying the various types of Casas Grandes pottery. Glenna Nielsen-Grimm was a co-curator of the exhibit Touching the Past: Traditions of the Casas Grandes at the Museum of People and Cultures.

Amasa Mason Lyman, Mormon Apostle and Apostate A Study in Dedication Edward Leo Lyman

The early history of the Church of Jesus Christ of Amasa Mason Lyman MORMON APOSTLE AND APOSTATE Latter-day Saints is filled with A Study in Dedication fascinating characters, but few led a more tumultuous life than Amasa Lyman. He served as a missionary in the â&#x20AC;&#x153;burned-overâ&#x20AC;? district of upstate New York and in Ohio before moving to Kirtland. He participated in the conflicts with hostile Missourians and emigrated to Nauvoo, Illinois. There, he became a leader in the church EDWARD LEO LYMAN and a close associate of Joseph Smith. Lyman then led a company of pioneers across Iowa to Winter Quarters and on to the Salt Lake Valley. He was sent to the California gold fields and led the colonization of San Bernardino, where he became its first mayor, before returning to Utah. Having spent more than thirty years in the service of his church, Lyman began to move away from its teachings after a series of conflicts with its second leader, Brigham Young. Lyman was one of the first Mormons to criticize the Mountain Meadows Massacre, which led to his dismissal as an apostle. He was excommunicated in 1870 and became one of the foremost spokesmen of the Godbeiteâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Church of Zion movement before his death in 1877. Edward Leo Lyman taught history at North High School, Victor Valley College, California Polytechnic University at Pomona, and California State University, San Bernardino.

On the Mormon Frontier The Diary of Hosea Stout, 1844â&#x20AC;&#x201C;1889 Edited by Juanita Brooks

Hosea Stout was a participant in the mainstream movement as the newly formed Mormon Church expanded its membership and range. He held numerous positions of responsibility in church, civic, and governmental organizations, including as an officer of the militias of Illinois and Utah, attorney general of the State of Deseret and the Territory of Utah, and president of the house of the Utah Territorial Legislature. Such positions gave Stout the opportunity to observe and record events of great moment in Mormon history that were outside the reach of many diarists. His records of the territorial legislature offer a more informative and detailed account of the affairs of the legislative assembly than even the official journals of that body. Yet Stout also imbues his diaries with a sense of the familiar, recounting moving experiences from his daily life. This edition of On the Mormon Frontier presents Stoutâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s diary in a single volume, proving that it continues to be an essential work in the study of Mormon and American history. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of the most magnificent windows upon Mormon history ever opened, an enduring contribution to American history.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Dale Morgan, historian and author of The Great Salt Lake Juanita Brooks (1898â&#x20AC;&#x201C;1989) remains among the most notable and recognized of Utah historians, widely respected for her courage, integrity, and thoroughness in documenting and interpreting Mormon history and culture. Her many publications include The Mountain Meadows Massacre; the monumental A Mormon Chronicle: The Diaries of John D. Lee, 1848â&#x20AC;&#x201C;1876; and her autobiography Quicksand and Cactus.

Lost Treasures explorers and emigrant parties. Central to the story on the Old Spanish Trail takes readers through the history is the opening of the Hastings Cutoff in 1846, of the trail and its surrounding lands, from the arrival of which led to the tragedy of the Donner Party and Spanish conquistadors and the treasures of Montezuma, the pioneering of the emigrant trails through Utahâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s through its expansion northward, to the traces of the trail Wasatch Mountains. that can still be found today.

Just as there are ghost towns in Utah, there are ghost railroads, lines that have run the course of their existence. Ghost rails are helpful in developing an understanding of why lines are built and how railroads are pertinent to the economy of the state. More engaging, though, is the sense of abandonment that comes from standing on a vacant roadbed where once twin rails lay, and over which passed thousands of trains.

Bark Beetle Outbreaks in Western North America Causes and Consequences Hannah Nordhaus Edited by Barbara Bentz

Since the 1990s, bark beetles have collectively killed billions of trees across millions of acres of forest in western North America, from Alaska to northern Mexico. Although a force of natural change in forest ecosystems, the increased intensity, expanded range, and synchroneity of recent bark beetle outbreaks have proved the most devastating in recorded history, and there seems to be no indication that future infestations will slow. Bark Beetle Outbreaks in Western North America: Causes and Consequences is the result of a symposium convened by scientists with the US Forest Service Rocky Mountain Research Center. This easy-to-read booklet examines the ecology and biology of bark beetles, the extent of historical and current outbreaks, and the potential consequences of such widespread infestations on forest ecosystems. Factors contributing to increased outbreaks, such as climate change, natural disturbances, and human influence are discussed, and possible preventative measures proposed.

Climate Warming in Western North America Evidence and Environmental Effects Edited by Frederic H. Wagner

Western North America is a unique area to use as a laboratory for climate change. Aridity makes it highly sensitive to changes in precipitation and the majority of its water resources come from mountain streams fed by snowfall. Any change to water availability has a direct affect on agriculture and livestock ranching throughout the region. This book focuses largely on climate change during the twentieth century and the associated environmental effects in western North America. It also uses models based on twentieth-century changes to project twenty-first-century changes. The scientific evidence presented here does not engage in policy advocacy, but provides policy makers useful information in planning for the future. Frederic Wagner is professor emeritus in the Department of Forest, Range, and Wildlife Sciences at Utah State University, where he served as director of the Ecology Center.

Armenians and the Allies in Cilicia, 1914â&#x20AC;&#x201C;1923 YĂźcel GßçlĂź

In the midst of World War I, the Ottoman government forcibly removed most of its Armenian citizens from their eastern Anatolian and the lands. According to reliable estimates, close to forty percent of in the prewar population perished. While recognizing the controversy and tragedy of the events of 1915 that led to the death of hundreds of thousands of Armenians, author Yßcel Gßçlß refrains from accepting the genocidal label that other scholars have assigned the episode. Gßçlß bases his claim largely on evidence from state and military archives in Turkey, Britain, and the United States that look specifically into the Ottoman version of history, placing the whole question of genocide in a wider and more nuanced perspective than that in which it is usually depicted. According to the author, revolutionary Armenian forces were threatening the Ottoman Empire from within as it was simultaneously threatened by external forces. Armenians were also actively involved with Allied forces throughout World War I. In response, the Ottoman government ordered the movement of the Armenian population away from protected and sensitive war zones. The actions taken by the Ottoman Empire to control the Armenian population were those of relocation, not extermination. Working to explain why the Armenian conflict emerged and how it was eventually resolved, this book discusses the Armenian revolutionary and separatist movements, Turkish measures of self defense, and Allied schemes regarding the region during the period. It places special emphasis on the influence of Allied forces on the actions of Armenians in Cilicia. Yßcel Gßçlß
