praise for

The Bitterroot and Mr. Brandborg


in Environmental and American Western History

"The Bitterroot and Mr. Brandborg is a tour de force. Swanson opens a much larger story about the meaning of public lands in a democratic society. This book will have a profound impact on our understanding of the environmental dilemmas and political controversies that have rocked the northern Rockies since the mid-twentieth century.” ­—Char Miller, Director of Environmental Analysis and W. M. Keck Professor of Environmental Analysis, Pomona College, and author of Gifford Pinchot and the Making of Modern Environmentalism

The Bitterroot and Mr. Brandborg Clearcutting and the Struggle for Sustainable Forestry in the Northern Rockies Frederick H. Swanson

Fredrick Swanson tells the story of Guy M. Brandborg and his impact on the practices of the U.S. Forest Service. As supervisor of Montana’s Bitterroot National Forest from 1935 to 1955, Brandborg engaged in a management style that promoted not only the well-being of the forest community but also the social and economic welfare of the local people. By relying on selective cutting, his goal was to protect the watersheds and wildlife habitats that are devastated by clear-cutting, and to prevent the job losses that follow such practices. Following his retirement, he became concerned that his agency was deviating from the practice of sustained-yield management of the forest’s timber lands, and led a highly visible public outcry that became known as the Bitterroot controversy. Brandborg’s behind-the-scenes lobbying contributed materially to the passage of the National Forest Management Act of 1976, the single most important law affecting public forestry since the creation of the Forest Service. Meticulously written, The Bitterroot and Mr. Brandborg articulates Brandborg’s Progressive-era idealism and is based on extensive archival research in collections throughout the Rockies and the Northwest, including the Brandborg family papers. Swanson’s crisp narration of how one national forest supervisor understood the intricate connection between the grasslands and forests under his care and the communities that were so dependent on these invaluable resources, opens a much larger story about the meaning of public lands in a democratic society.

FREDERICK SWANSON writes about the West from his home in Salt Lake City. His book Dave Rust: A Life in the Canyons (University of Utah Press, 2007) won the David W. and Beatrice C. Evans Biography Award of the Mountain West Center for Regional Studies.

Two Toms Lessons from a Shoshone Doctor Thomas H. Johnson and Helen S. Johnson

“This is a gentle book, yet it contains powerful descriptions of traditions and life among the Eastern Shoshone Indians. The dialogue epitomizes the Shoshone way of teaching and the authors should be justly proud of capturing the spirit of culture in this manner.” —Henry E. Stamm IV, Idaho State  University

In 1969, Tom Wesaw was an 83-year-old Shoshone doctor and religious leader on the Wind River Reservation in Wyoming. He could no longer drive, which posed problems in making house calls. The arrival of young anthropologist Tom Johnson changed that. Johnson would drive Wesaw, and cook, pump water, and build fires for sweat lodges. In exchange, the elder Tom would show the younger Tom his work. The two were together so often that the people of Wind River began to refer to them affectionately by one name: Two Toms. By the light of the lamp Wesaw gave him, Johnson would write down what he learned. The Shoshone doctor wanted his student to share everything he saw and heard. Now, in Two Toms: Lessons from a Shoshone Doctor, he has. Presented as an engaging narrative, Johnson’s book reveals details about the Shoshone culture and it chronicles the story of the friendship between these two men of different backgrounds. Filled with valuable anthropological information, this book is also highly readable and entertaining. THOMAS H. JOHNSON is Professor Emeritus of Anthropology at the University of Wisconsin, Steven’s Point. HELEN S. JOHNSON assisted Thomas with fieldwork on the Wind River Reservation and is co-author of Also Called Sacajawea: Chief Woman’s Stolen Identity.

FINALIST The Wallace Stegner Prize in Environmental and Western American History

Forced to Abandon Our Fields David H. DeJong

The 1914 Clay Southworth Gila River Pima Interviews David H. DeJong

"DeJong's presentation of the oral interview transcripts is excellent. These interviews are a rich source of cultural and historical information about the Pimas." —David Rich Lewis, Utah State  University

During the nineteenth century, upstream diversions from the Gila River decreased the arable land on the Gila River Indian Reservation to only a few thousand acres. As a result the Pima Indians, primarily an agricultural people, fell into poverty. Many Pima farmers and leaders lamented this suffering and in 1914 the United States Indian Irrigation Service assigned a 33-year-old engineer named Clay “Charles” Southworth to oversee the Gila River adjudication. As part of that process, Southworth interviewed 34 Pima elders, thus putting a face on the depth of hardships facing many Indians in the late nineteenth century. Southworth’s interviews fell into obscurity until recently, when they were rediscovered by David DeJong. The interviews cover decades of Pima history and reveal the nexus between upstream diversions and Pima economy, agriculture, water use, and water rights. In Forced to Abandon Our Fields, DeJong provides the historical context for these interviews; transcripts of the interviews provide first-hand descriptions of both the once-successful Pima agricultural economy and its decline by the early twentieth century. These interviews suggest that it was not the triumph of Western civilization that displaced the Pima agricultural economy but the application of a philosophy of economic liberalism that prevented the Pima from building on their previous successes. DAVID H. DEJONG is project manager of the Pima-Maricopa Irrigation Project. He received a PhD in American Indian Policy Studies from the University of Arizona.

Where the Earth and Sky Are Sewn Together Sobaípuri-O’odham Contexts of Contact and Colonialism

Deni J. Seymour

Where the Earth and Sky Are Sewn Together Sobaípuri-O’odham Contexts of Contact and Colonialism Deni J. Seymour

“Where the Earth and Sky Are Sewn Together provides a unique perspective on the Sobaípuri, O’odham, and Hohokam not captured in other books. The author provides a compelling amount of new data from her recent fieldwork. This is an extrodinary and exciting achievement.” —W. Bruce Masse, Los Alamos   National Laboratory, New Mexico

The Sobaípuri-O’odham occupied the San Pedro and Santa Cruz valleys of southern Arizona from the 1400s. Their descendants reside at the contemporary community if Wa:k (San Xavier del Bac). Most of the protohistory and history concerning the Sobaípuri-O’odham has been gleaned from documents written by the early Spanish colonizers and other Europeans and emphasizes the influence of Father Eusebio Kino; there are few accounts of the indigenous people themselves. In recent years, however, archaeological surveys and excavations in southern Arizona have revealed new information about this group. Where the Earth and Sky Are Sewn Together includes these archaeological findings to provide an enhanced interpretation of the Sobaípuri-O’odham lifeway, addressing questions that have been unanswerable by historical documents alone. Seymour considers new methods and theory for tackling the difficulties of working with a sparse archaeological record and proposes some very different answers. This book represents a much revised rendition of the historian’s Sobaípuri-O’odham, a people who once dominated southern Arizona’s landscape. DENI J. SEYMOUR is a research associate at the University of Arizona and a research archaeologist for Dos Locos Consultores, LLC. She has been studying the archaeology of the protohistoric and historic SobaípuriO’odham, Apache, and others for more than a quarter century.

Studying Technological Change Michael Brian Schiffer


A Behavioral Approach Michael Brian Schiffer

“In clear and concise prose, Schiffer lays out a framework that can be applied by archaeologists but also will be relevant to anyone with an interest in the interaction between humans and their material culture. Archaeologists and historians of technology will need to have it on their bookshelf.” —James M. Skibo, Illinois State  University

Studying Technological Change synthesizes nearly four decades of research by Michael Brian Schiffer, a cofounder of the field of behavioral archaeology. This new book asks historical and scientific questions about the interaction of people with artifacts during all times and in all places. The book is not about the history or prehistory of technology, nor is it a catalog of methods and techniques for inferring how specific technologies were made or used. Rather, it supplies conceptual tools that can be used to help craft an explanation of any technological change in any society. The behavioral approach leads to new questions, creative research employing diverse lines of evidence, and, often, counterintuitive explanations. In behavioral archaeology, one never loses sight of the materiality of human behavior. Needless to say, advocates of other research approaches will find much in this book to dispute. But critics cannot gainsay the productivity of the behavioral approach nor the fact that it has furnished fresh insights into episodes of technological change. MICHAEL BRIAN SCHIFFER is the Fred. A. Riecker Distinguished Professor of Anthropology and director of the Laboratory of Traditional Technology at the University of Arizona.

The Glen Canyon Country “I found the book engrossing for both the sheer breadth of its account and for its interesting personal sidelights on some of the characters that the Glen Canyon country has attracted. The book will have a permanent place in the scholarly literature on the Glen Canyon country.” —C. MELVIN AIKENS, University of Oregon

“No one has brought together so many different facets of the Glen Canyon story: prehistory, history, exploration, scientific study, exploitation, recreational use, and use for water storage and power.” —ROY D. WEBB, University of Utah

The Glen Canyon Country A Personal Memoir Don D. Fowler Foreword by W. L. “Bud” Rusho

In his new book, The Glen Canyon Country, archaeologist Don D. Fowler shares the history of a place and the peoples who sojourned there over the course of several thousand years. To tell this story, he weaves his personal experience as a student working on the Glen Canyon Salvage Project with accounts of early explorers, geologists, miners, railroad developers, settlers, river runners, and others who entered this magical place. The book details the canyon’s story via historical and scientific summaries, biographical sketches, personal memoir, and previously unpublished photos of the land and its explorers. Readers will experience the intrigue and beauty of the Canyon while following not only the story of an individual but also of Glen Canyon itself. Infused with the breadth and depth of a lifetime of archaeological experience, The Glen Canyon Country is the definitive account of the prehistory and history of a significant river corridor and the surrounding land.

A White-Bearded Plainsman The Memoirs of Archaeologist W. Raymond Wood W. Raymond Wood Foreword by Richard A. Krause

W. Raymond Wood played a leading role in the early days of Great Plains archaeology. In A White-Bearded Plainsman, he tells how his own career emerged, as the discipline of Plains archaeology developed during the post–World War II era. Readers will learn of the childhood influences that lead Wood to pursue the path of archaeologist, and of the events and people that shaped his professional life. In addition to telling Wood’s personal story, the book provides an intellectual history of the discipline of midcontinental archaeology over the last half century. It will thus be valuable to students and scholars in the field, as it describes how the paradigms in Plains and midwestern prehistory have changed over time. To understand the discipline, one must understand the cultural and intellectual underpinnings that shaped it. Wood’s book helps map for a new generation of archaeologists from whence they’ve come, and his role in the developments along the way. W. RAYMOND WOOD'S long career in Great Plains archaeology began in the 1950s. He is currently Professor Emeritus of Anthropology at the University of Missouri, Columbia.

In the Human Zoo reveals encounters with a world that is both fragile and dangerous, a perilous, surreal place where not only humans but also creatures as innocuous as fireflies and owls become potential threats. Throughout the collection, speakers wrestle with human violence through a multitude of perspectives: the fear and resistance of victims, the frustration and outrage of witnesses, the regret and recognition of a global history in which so many people have participated as perpetrators. While the people who inhabit the world of this collection might yet remain caged, they nevertheless struggle to unleash themselves and each other through language.

“Jennifer Perrine’s poems, saturated in taut emotion and even in overt violence, are yet cooled, disciplined, by rigorous rendering, carefully evoked locations and descriptions. Jennifer Perrine is a deeply committed poet, intelligent, intense and perceptive of the minutiae of inner and outer human trauma.” — Anne Winters, Professor Emerita of Poetry,   University of Illinois at Chicago

Ownership, Property, and Sustainability Joseph Sax What is a landowner’s responsibility to habitat preservation? In the past, owning land meant arranging it for one’s own use, but this in turn generally resulted in destroyed or degraded habitat. In today’s world, loss of biodiversity has become a public concern. Does the landowner now have an obligation to manage his land differently? Can habitat protection be super­imposed on a private landowner? Joseph Sax explores these questions in his lecture on the interconnections of ownership, property, and sustainability.

Sherman Alexie A Collection of Critical Essays Edited by Jeff Berglund and Jan Roush Sherman Alexie is, by many accounts, the most widely read American Indian writer in the United States and likely in the world. His nineteen published books span a variety of genres and include his most recent National Book Award–winning The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian. Berglund and Roush have assembled twelve leading scholars of American Indian literature in this volume of critical essays that provides new perspectives on both Alexie’s print and big screen works.

This lecture was given on March 11, 2010, at the 15th annual symposium sponsored by the Wallace Stegner Center for Land, Resources and the Environment at the S. J. Quinney College of Law, University of Utah.

“The bar is raised. I believe this work will be seen as a role model for literary criticism of Native American fiction, poetry, and film.”

Tony Hillerman’s Navajoland Hideouts, Haunts, and Havens in the Joe Leaphorn and Jim Chee Mysteries Laurance D. Linford Tony Hillerman is beloved for his novels of intrigue in the American Southwest. In Tony Hillerman’s Navajo­ land, Laurance Linford takes readers on a journey through the Four Corners region to the haunts of Hillerman’s characters. Offered in encyclopedic form, each entry gives the common name of a particular location, the Navajo name and history, and a description of the location’s significance in various Hillerman novels. An understanding of the Navajo names and their relations to the landscape will lend a new dimension to the characters and events Tony Hillerman created. This expanded third edition is updated to include all 72 sites from Hillerman’s final and location-rich novel, The Shape Shifter.

“An invaluable guide.  This book belongs in the car of any traveler passing through this land.” —New Mexico Magazine LAURANCE D. LINFORD was trained as an archaeologist.

Foragers and Farmers of the Northern Kayenta Region Excavations along the Navajo Mountain Road Phil R. Geib Dating back to the early Archaic period (ca. 7000 bc) and ranging forward through the Basketmaker components to the Puebloan period, Geib’s study presents the results of a major archaeological excavation project on Navajo tribal land in the Four Corners area and integrates this new information with existing knowledge of archaeology of the northern Kayenta region. The excavation of thirty-three sites provides a cross section of prehistory from which Navajo Nation archaeologists retrieved a wealth of information about subsistence, settlement, architecture, and other aspects of past lifeways.

“Provides by far the best data available so far on the chronology of Archaic and Basketmaker II occupations in the Four Corners area.”

The Architecture of Grasshopper Pueblo Charles R. Riggs The long history of field research at Grasshopper, a massive 500-room pueblo established and enlarged between ad 1300 and 1330 by a group consisting mainly of newcomers to the area, has produced a wealth of architectural information. Drawing on extensive research, Charles Riggs reconstructs the pueblo— found in an isolated mountain meadow in east-central Arizona—and provides a glimpse into the everyday life of the community at a critical time in Southwest prehistory.

“Both readable and dynamically supported with highquality visual and analytical content, Riggs’s book stands out among architectural studies of its kind.” —American Antiquity
