Blends art and cultural history to explore the region's character


visions of the biG sky
painting and photographing the northern rocky mountain west
By Dan flores
From the Wind River Range to the Canadian border, the northern Rocky Mountain West is an outsized land of stunning dimensions and emotive power. In Visions of the Big Sky, Dan Flores revisits the Northern Rockies artistic tradition to explore its diversity and richness. In his essays about the artists, photographers, and thematic historical imagery of the region, he blends art and cultural history with personal reflection to assess the formation of the region’s character. The volume features 140 color and black-and-white illustrations, ranging from prehistoric rock art to modernist painting, and from charismatic wildlife scenes to classic landscape. They demonstrate the preponderance of Indians and wilderness in the region’s art and explore the work of individuals as diverse as Edward Sheriff Curtis and Ansel Adams. Focusing on those whose art has defined the region, Flores tells how painters like Maynard Dixon interpreted the Northern Rockies and describes the contributions of women artists Fra Dana, Evelyn Cameron, and Emily Carr. A final essay, “What Was Charlie Russell Trying to Tell Us?” critically examines the legacy of Montana’s cowboy artist. Conversational in tone and as informative as they are entertaining, these essays provide rich vistas of their own. Visions of the Big Sky does for the region’s art what The Last Best Place did for its literature. Dan Flores is A. B. Hammond Professor of History at the University of Montana, Missoula. He is the author of numerous books, including The Natural West: Environmental History in the Great Plains and Rocky Mountains.

an unsurpassed visual exploration of the Lone star state
by a. ray stephens
Cartography by Carol Zuber-mallison
For twenty years the Historical Atlas of Texas stood as a trusted resource for students and aficionados of the state. Now this key reference has been thoroughly updated and expanded—and even rechristened. Texas: A Historical Atlas more accurately reflects the Lone Star State at the dawn of the twenty-first century. Its 86 entries feature 175 newly designed maps—more than twice the number in the original volume—illustrating the most significant aspects of the state’s history, geography, and current affairs. The heart of the book is its wealth of historical information. Sections devoted to indigenous peoples of Texas and its exploration and settlement offer more than 45 entries with visual depictions of everything from the routes of Spanish explorers to empresario grants to cattle trails. In another 31 articles, coverage of modern and contemporary Texas takes in hurricanes and highways, power plants and population trends. Practically everything about this atlas is new. All of the essays have been updated to reflect recent scholarship, while more than 30 appear for the first time, addressing such subjects as the Texas Declaration of Independence, early roads, slavery, the Civil War and Reconstruction, Texas-Oklahoma boundary disputes, and the tideland oil controversy. A dozen new entries for “Contemporary Texas” alone chart aspects of industry, agriculture, and minority demographics. Nearly all of the expanded essays are accompanied by multiple maps—every one in full color. The most comprehensive, state-of-the-art work of its kind, Texas: A Historical Atlas is more than just a reference. It is a striking visual introduction to the Lone Star State.

A renowned activist recalls his childhood years in an Indian boarding school

my life in an indian boarding school
By Adam fortunate eagle Afterword by Laurence M. Hauptman
“For those convinced that Indian boarding schools were solely instruments of psychological and cultural oppression, Fortunate Eagle’s account will be both surprising and unsettling. Pipestone is artfully told, frequently humorous, and deeply moving.”—DaviD wallaCe aDams, author of Education for Extinction: American Indians and the Boarding School Experience, 1875–1928 Best known as a leader of the Indian takeover of Alcatraz Island in 1969, Adam Fortunate Eagle now offers an unforgettable memoir of his years as a young student at Pipestone Indian Boarding School in Minnesota. In this rare firsthand account, Fortunate Eagle lives up to his reputation as a “contrary warrior” by disproving the popular view of Indian boarding schools as bleak and prisonlike. Fortunate Eagle attended Pipestone between 1935 and 1945, just as Commissioner of Indian Affairs John Collier’s pluralist vision was reshaping the federal boarding school system to promote greater respect for Native cultures and traditions. But this book is hardly a dry history of the late boarding school era. Telling this story in the voice of his younger self, the author takes us on a delightful journey into his childhood and the inner world of the boarding school. Along the way, he shares anecdotes of dormitory culture, student pranks, and warrior games. Although Fortunate Eagle recognizes Pipestone’s shortcomings, he describes his time there as nothing less than “a little bit of heaven.” Were all Indian boarding schools the dispiriting places that history has suggested? This book allows readers to decide for themselves. Adam Fortunate eagle, an enrolled member of the Ojibwe Nation, is the author of Heart of the Rock: The Indian Invasion of Alcatraz. He currently resides on the Fallon Indian Reservation in Nevada. Laurence M. Hauptman is SUNY Distinguished Professor of History at the State University of New York at New Paltz.

A young woman discovers the romance and brutality of remote Montana

BUyeR WHen I cAMe WeST

when i Came west
By Laurie Wagner Buyer
“A tour de force, brilliant, utterly candid, and unforgettable.”—Dale l. walker, author of Eldorado and Pacific Destiny As a young college student in the early 1970s, Laurie Wagner had never camped out, never gone hiking, and never lived without electricity or indoor plumbing. Yet she walked away from these comforts and headed for the wildest reaches of Montana to live with a man she had not met in person. When I Came West is Laurie Wagner Buyer’s account of her terrifying and exhilarating years in Montana as she changes from a girl too squeamish to touch a dead mouse to a toughened frontierswoman unafraid to butcher a domestic animal. Living in a cabin far away from family and friends, with the nearest neighbor four miles away, Laurie finds herself caught up in two love affairs: one with the volatile Vietnam vet Bill and one with the untamed West—even as she recognizes, in the words of one neighbor, “It is plumb foolishness to love something that cannot love you back.” While her relationship with Bill grows precarious, Laurie forges a lasting relationship with her surroundings: the rivers, the wildlife, and the people who inhabit such remote corners. Peeling away the romance of escaping to the wilderness, When I Came West reveals the brutality and bounty of a world far removed from modern urban life. Laurie Wagner Buyer, an award-winning novelist and poet, is the author of several works, including Across the High Divide and Side Canyons. When she is not hiking in the high country or on the road leading workshops, she resides in Llano, Texas.

A graceful, brutally honest account of Vietnam in the wake of the horrible massacre

after my l ai
my year Commanding first platoon, Charlie Company
By Gary W. Bray
In the fall of 1969, Gary Bray landed in South Vietnam as a recently married, freshly minted second lieutenant in the U.S. Army. His assignment was not enviable: leading the platoon whose former members had committed the My Lai massacre—the murder of hundreds of Vietnamese civilians—eighteen months earlier. In this compelling memoir, he shares his experiences of Vietnam in the direct wake of that terrible event. After My Lai documents the war’s horrific effects on both sides of the struggle. Bray presents the Vietnam conflict as the touchstone of a generation, telling how his feelings about being a soldier—a family tradition—were dramatically altered by the events he participated in and witnessed. He explains how young men, angered by the deaths of comrades and with no release for their frustration, can sometimes cross the line of legal and ethical behavior. Bray’s account differs from many Vietnam memoirs in his vivid descriptions of platoon-level tactical operations. As he builds suspense in moment-by-moment depictions of men plunging into jungle gloom and tragedy, he demonstrates that what led to My Lai is easier to comprehend once you’ve walked the booby-trapped ground yourself. An intensely personal story, gracefully rendered yet brutally honest, After My Lai reveals how warfare changes you forever. gary W. Bray is a retired business owner who lives in Stigler, Oklahoma. While serving in Vietnam, he was awarded the Purple Heart and the Bronze Star.

A look at the real heroes and villains of a legendary conflict


wyominG r anGe war
the infamous invasion of Johnson County
By John W. Davis
Wyoming attorney John W. Davis retells the story of the West’s most notorious range war. Having delved more deeply than previous writers into land and census records, newspapers, and trial transcripts, Davis has produced an all-new interpretation. He looks at the conflict from the perspective of Johnson County residents—those whose home territory was invaded and many of whom the invaders targeted for murder— and finds that, contrary to the received explanation, these people were not thieves and rustlers but legitimate citizens. The broad outlines of the conflict are familiar: some of Wyoming’s biggest cattlemen, under the guise of eliminating livestock rustling on the open range, hire two-dozen Texas cowboys and, with range detectives and prominent members of the Wyoming Stock Growers Association, “invade” north-central Wyoming to clean out rustlers and other undesirables. While the invaders kill two suspected rustlers, citizens mobilize and eventually turn the tables, surrounding the intruders at a ranch where they intend to capture them by force. An appeal for help convinces President Benjamin Harrison to call out the army from nearby Fort McKinley, and after an all-night ride the soldiers arrive just in time to stave off the invaders’ annihilation. Though taken prisoner, they later avoid prosecution. The cattle barons’ powers of persuasion in justifying their deeds have colored accounts of the war for more than a century. The Johnson County War tells a compelling story that redraws the lines between heroes and villains. John W. Davis resides in Worland, Wyoming, and has practiced law in the Big Horn Basin for more than thirty years. He is author of A Vast Amount of Trouble: A History of the Spring Creek Raid and Goodbye, Judge Lynch: The End of a Lawless Era in Wyoming’s Big Horn Basin.

Recounts the rise and fall of this famous 1960s community

america’s first hippie Commune, Drop City
By Mark Matthews
Sex, drugs, and rock ’n’ roll. In popular imagination, these words seem to capture the atmosphere of 1960s hippie communes. Yet when the first hippie commune was founded in 1965 outside Trinidad, Colorado, the goal wasn’t one long party but rather a new society that integrated life and art. In Droppers, Mark Matthews chronicles the rise and fall of this utopian community, exploring the goals behind its creation and the factors that eventually led to its dissolution. Seeking refuge from enforced social conformity, the turmoil of racial conflict, and the Vietnam War, artist Eugene Bernofsky and other founders of Drop City sought to create an environment that would promote both equality and personal autonomy. These high ideals became increasingly hard to sustain, however, in the face of external pressures and internal divisions.
oriGinal paperbaCk marCh $19.95 paper 978-0-8061-4058-2 248 paGes, 5.5 x 8.5 25 b&w illus., 1 map history

In a rollicking, fast-paced style, Matthews vividly describes the early enthusiasm of Drop City’s founders, as Bernofsky and his friends constructed a town in the desert literally using the “detritus of society.” Over time, Drop City suffered from media attention, the distraction of visitors, and the arrival of new residents who didn’t share the founders’ ideals. Matthews bases his account on numerous interviews with Bernofsky and other residents as well as written sources. Explaining Drop City in the context of the counterculture’s evolution and the American tradition of utopian communities, he paints an unforgettable picture of a largely misunderstood phenomenon in American history. A former wildland firefighter and freelance journalist, Mark Matthews is the author of Smoke Jumping on the Western Fire Line: Conscientious Objectors during World War II and A Great Day to Fight Fire: Mann Gulch, 1949.

Reflections of young women on the California and Oregon trails

HOLMeS BeST OF cOvereD WAgOn WOMen, vOLUMe 2

best of CovereD waGon women volume 2
emigrant Girls on the overland trails
edited by Kenneth Holmes Introduction by Melody M. Miyamoto
The diaries and letters of women on the overland trails in the mid- to late nineteenth century are treasured documents. These eleven selections drawn from the multivolume Covered Wagon Women series present the best first-person trail accounts penned by women in their teens who traveled west between 1846 and 1898. Ranging in age from eleven to nineteen, unmarried and without children of their own, these diarists had experiences different from those of older women who carried heavier responsibilities with them on the trail. These letters and diaries reflect both the unique perspective of youthful optimism and the experiences common among all female emigrants. The young women write of friendship and family, trail hardships, and explorations such as visits to Indian gravesites. Some like Sallie Hester even write of enjoying the company of men, and many speculate about marriage prospects. Domestic roles did not define the girls’ trail experience; only the four oldest in this collection recorded helping with chores. As they journey through Indian lands, these writers show that even their youth did not prevent them from holding notions of white racial superiority. Two of the selections are newly published, having appeared only in limited-distribution collector’s editions of the original series. For all readers captivated by the first Best of Covered Wagon Women collection, this new volume’s focus on youthful travelers adds a fresh perspective to life on the trail. Kenneth L. Holmes (1914–95) was Professor of History at Oregon College of Education in Monmouth (now Western Oregon University). He edited and compiled the eleven volumes of Covered Wagon Women. Melody M. Miyamoto is Professor of History at Collin College, McKinney, Texas. Her articles have appeared in Overland Journal and the Journal of Documentary Editing and in the Encyclopedia of Immigration and Migration in the American West.

Fills a significant gap in our understanding of the legendary expedition

river of promise
lewis and Clark on the Columbia
By David L. Nicandri foreword by Clay S. Jenkinson
In the many published accounts of the Lewis and Clark expedition, historians have tended to undervalue the explorers’ encounter with Columbia River country. Most narratives emphasize Lewis and Clark’s adventures through their journey to the Bitterroot Mountains but have said little about the rest of their travels west of there. River of Promise fills a significant gap in our understanding of Lewis and Clark’s legendary expedition. Historian David L. Nicandri shifts the focus to an essential goal of the explorers: to discover the headwaters of the Columbia and a water route to the Pacific Ocean. He also restores William Clark in his role as the primary geographic problem-solver of the partnership. Most historians assume that Meriwether Lewis was a more distinguished scientist than Clark because of his formal training in Philadelphia and superior writing skills. Here we see Clark as Lewis’s equal as scientific geographer, not merely the practical manager of boats and personnel. Nicandri places the legend of Sacagawea in clearer perspective by focusing instead on the contributions of often-overlooked Indian leaders in Columbia River country. He also offers many points of comparison to other explorers and a provocative analysis of Lewis’s suicide in 1809, arguing that it was not a sudden event but fruit of a seed planted much earlier, quite possibly in Columbia country. David L. nicandri is director of the Washington State Historical Society. He is the Executive Editor of Columbia Magazine and author of many books and articles. clay S. Jenkinson, well known for his historical impersonations of Thomas Jefferson and Meriwether Lewis, is the author of The Character of Meriwether Lewis.

“The explorer travels to discover and investigate; the pilgrim travels and investigates to discover the sacred.”

pilGrim eye
Photographs and text by David Halpern foreword by Bill Sontag
David Halpern’s life and career span remarkable developments in the history of modern photography, from the introduction of Kodachrome film in 1936 to the current digital era. As a fine art and commercial photographer, perennial student and teacher with a passion for sharing, Halpern has embraced each new technology and applied them to a wide range of subjects. In Pilgrim Eye, Halpern’s first book to showcase his award-winning fine art and landscape imagery, he provides a revealing glimpse into his lifelong journey of selfdiscovery. The book showcases 128 color and black-and-white photographs made over more than fifty years of pilgrimages across America—from the Great Smoky Mountains of Tennessee to Thomas Bay, Alaska, and from Acadia National Park in Maine to Joshua Tree National Park in the California desert. These stunning images are accompanied by the photographer’s self-revealing stories and thoughts, most of them pulled from his meticulously written and preserved journals. Neither a how-to manual nor a traditional portfolio, Pilgrim Eye has been called by one reviewer “several books at once: a retrospective look at [Halpern’s] career as a landscape photographer, an artistic manifesto, and a kind of philosophical autobiography . . . as much fun to look at as it is to read.” David Halpern has served eleven times as a National Park Artist-in-Residence—at Colorado’s Rocky Mountain National Park and Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park, Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah, Glacier National Park in Montana, and Acadia National Park in Maine. His work has been exhibited at museums and galleries across the country and has been featured in previous books, including Tulsa Art Deco: An Architectural Era. Halpern has taught photography for more than three decades, and he was a 2004 inductee in the Tulsa Historical Society Hall of Fame. He lives in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and Santa Fe, New Mexico. Bill Sontag, a former National Park Superintendent, is a journalist, photographer, and freelance writer.

PUeBLOS, SPAnIArDS, AnD THe KIngDOM OF neW MexIcO By John L. Kessell
For more than four hundred years in New Mexico, Pueblo Indians and Spaniards have lived “together yet apart.” Now the preeminent historian of that region’s colonial past offers a fresh, balanced look at the seventeenth-century origins of a precarious relationship. John L. Kessell sets aside stereotypes of a Native American Eden and the Black Legend of Spanish cruelty and paints an evenhanded picture of a tense but interwoven coexistence. Brimming with new insights embedded in an engaging narrative, Pueblos, Spaniards, and the Kingdom of New Mexico is the definitive account of a volatile era. John L. Kessell, Professor Emeritus of History at the University of New Mexico, specializes in the American Southwest during the Spanish colonial period. He is the author of Spain in the Southwest: A Narrative History of Colonial New Mexico, Arizona, Texas, and California and numerous other books. He resides near Durango, Colorado.

She now brings to print the most thorough account ever of one of the West’s most infamous outlaws, tracing his life from his childhood in Pennsylvania to his involvement with the Wild Bunch and, in 1908, to his reputed death by gunshot in Bolivia. The Sundance Kid is enlivened by more than three dozen photographs, including family photos never before seen. Donna B. ernst has published widely on the Sundance Kid and other western outlaws.

TexAS DevILS rangers and regulars on the lower rio Grande, 1846–1861 By Michael L. Collins
The Texas Rangers have been the source of tall tales and the stuff of legend as well as a growing darker reputation. But the story of the Rangers along the Mexican border between Texas statehood and the onset of the Civil War has been largely overlooked—until now. This engaging history pulls readers back to a chaotic time along the lower Rio Grande in the mid-nineteenth century. Texas Devils challenges the time-honored image of “good guys in white hats” to reveal the more complicated and sobering reality behind the Ranger Myth. Michael L. collins, Regents Professor of History at Midwestern State University, Wichita Falls, Texas, is coauthor of Profiles

An acclaimed rawhide braider of horse gear, Luis Ortega elevated his craft to collectible art and influenced a generation of gear makers. This book is the most comprehensive overview of his life, art, and career and the first book-length work on rawhide braiding in North America, charting changes in horse gear over five decades. Chuck Stormes and Don Reeves introduce readers to an itinerant cowboy who strove for a level of craftsmanship and artistry above what the market expected—and to be the best in his field. Although grounded in the Spanish vaquero tradition, Ortega’s work was shaped by his quest for excellence and an intuitive sense of how to fashion humble items into objects of lasting beauty. Ever a private man, he viewed his craft as a calling yet rarely sought attention even after his reputation was established. More than a biography, the book is a richly illustrated overview of this expert braider’s art. Some 100 illustrations, 70 in color, offer close-ups of Ortega’s work that depict the intricacy of his reins, quirts, and other pieces. From eight-strand reatas to figure-eight hobbles, the beauty, functionality, and painstaking care of his output shine through in every piece. This elegant volume allows readers to better understand the Hispanic foundations of the American cowboy as it portrays the work of a man recognized by the National Endowment for the Arts as a Master Traditional Artist. It will stand as a definitive work on Ortega and a tribute to his craft. chuck Stormes is an award-winning saddle maker who lives in Alberta, Canada. He is a founding member and past president of the Traditional Cowboy Arts Association. Don reeves holds the McCasland Chair of Cowboy Culture at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum, Oklahoma City, and is a frequent contributor to the museum’s quarterly magazine, Persimmon Hill. Mehl Lawson is a renowned champion horseman, rawhide braider, and award-winning sculptor of western and cowboy art who lives in Bonita, California.

How a famed unit of redcoats reflected a transatlantic identity

the royal ameriCan reGiment
an atlantic microcosm, 1755–1772
By Alexander V. Campbell
In the wake of Braddock’s defeat at Fort Duquesne in 1755, the British army raised the 60th, or Royal American, Regiment of Foot to fight the French and Indian War. Each of the regiment’s four battalions saw action in pivotal battles throughout the conflict. And as Alexander Campbell shows, the inclusion of foreign mercenaries and immigrant colonists alongside British volunteers made the RAR a microcosm of the Atlantic world. Not just a potent, combat-ready force, it played a key role in trade, migration, Indian diplomacy, and settlement. This book moves beyond the campaign orientation of most regimental histories to explore how the Royal Americans helped forge new Atlantic connections. Campbell draws on the regiment’s rich archival legacy—including the private papers of its first three colonels-in-chief and of mercenary field officers—to describe more fully than previous accounts the lives these soldiers led in the context of their times. Campbell takes a closer look at the motivations of regimental founder James Prevost, a Swiss mercenary in the courts of Kings George II and George III, and explores how migration to America attracted rank-and-file soldiers. He examines the unit’s training, deployment, and operational conduct to reveal the use of new tactics, and also chronicles a year in the soldiers’ lives as they attended to hard labor in preparation for the summer’s campaigns. He also traces the postwar activities of these veterans, showing how many of them, by taking up land grants they had been promised upon enlistment, helped settle the frontier and expand commerce. Rather than focus on previously documented animosity between British regulars and provincials, Campbell reveals how soldiers from different backgrounds formed a multiracial, multilingual society that reflected a truly cosmopolitan transatlantic identity. Alexander v. campbell, a former infantryman in the Canadian Armed Forces, holds a Ph.D. in history from the University of Western Ontario. He teaches history in Ottawa and works as an independent consultant who specializes in aboriginal issues.

The book Wellington banned


on wellinGton
a Critique of waterloo
By Carl von Clausewitz Translated, edited, and annotated by Peter Hofschröer
The Battle of Waterloo has been studied and dissected so extensively that one might assume little more on the subject could be discovered. Now historian Peter Hofschröer brings forward a long-repressed commentary written by Carl von Clausewitz, the author of On War. Clausewitz, the Western world’s most renowned military theorist, participated in the Waterloo campaign as a senior staff officer in the Prussian army. His appraisal, offered here in an up-to-date and readable translation, criticized the Duke of Wellington’s actions. Lord Liverpool sent his translation of the manuscript to Wellington, who pronounced it a “lying work.” The translated commentary was quickly buried in Wellington’s private papers, where it languished for a century and a half. Now published for the first time in English, Hofschröer brings Clausewitz’s critique back into view with thorough annotation and contextual explanation. Peter Hofschröer, long recognized as a leading scholar of the Napoleonic Wars, shows how the Duke prevented the account’s publication during his lifetime—a manipulation of history so successful that almost two centuries passed before Clausewitz’s work reemerged, finally permitting a reappraisal of key events in the campaign. In addition to translating and annotating Clausewitz’s critique, Hofschröer also includes an order of battle and an extensive bibliography. carl von clausewitz (1780–1831) was a Prussian soldier and a military theorist. His book On War is to this day essential reading for military strategists. Peter Hofschröer is the author of numerous books and articles on the Napoleonic Wars, including, Waterloo 1815: Wavre, Plancenoit, and the Race to Paris.

Restoring the reputation of redcoats once labeled “scum of the earth”

all for the kinG’s shillinG
the british soldier under wellington, 1808–1814
By edward J. Coss
“A revelation, a keystone reinterpretation of the British soldier of the Napoleonic Wars.”—John lynn, author of The Bayonets of the Republic: Motivation and Tactics in the Army of Revolutionary France, 1791–94 The British troops who fought so successfully under the Duke of Wellington during his Peninsular Campaign against Napoleon have long been branded by the duke’s own words—“scum of the earth”—and assumed to have been society’s ne’er-dowells or criminals who enlisted to escape justice. Now Edward J. Coss shows to the contrary that most of these redcoats were respectable laborers and tradesmen and that it was mainly their working-class status that prompted the duke’s derision. Driven into the army by unemployment in the wake of Britain’s industrial revolution, they confronted wartime hardship with ethical values and became formidable soldiers in the bargain. These men depended on the king’s shilling for survival, yet pay was erratic and provisions were scant. Fed worse even than sixteenth-century Spanish galley slaves, they often marched for days without adequate food; and if during the campaign they did steal from Portuguese and Spanish civilians, the theft was attributable not to any criminal leanings but to hunger and the paltry rations provided by the army. Coss draws on a comprehensive database on British soldiers as well as first-person accounts of Peninsular War participants to offer a better understanding of their backgrounds and daily lives. He describes how these neglected and abused soldiers came to rely increasingly on the emotional and physical support of comrades and developed their own moral and behavioral code. Their cohesiveness, Coss argues, was a major factor in their legendary triumphs over Napoleon’s battle-hardened troops. The first work to closely examine the social composition of Wellington’s rank and file through the lens of military psychology, All for the King’s Shilling transcends the Napoleonic battlefield to help explain the motivation and behavior of all soldiers under the stress of combat. edward J. coss is Assistant Professor of Military History at the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College, Fort Belvoir, Virginia.

An overlooked turning point in the trans-Mississippi theater


Civil war arkansas, 1863
the battle for a state
By Mark K. Christ
The Arkansas River Valley is one of the most fertile regions in the South. During the Civil War, the river also served as a vital artery for moving troops and supplies. In 1863 the battle to wrest control of the valley was, in effect, a battle for the state itself. In spite of its importance, however, this campaign is often overshadowed by the siege of Vicksburg. Now Mark K. Christ offers the first detailed military assessment of parallel events in Arkansas, describing their consequences for both Union and Confederate powers. Christ analyzes the campaign from military and political perspectives to show how events in 1863 affected the war on a larger scale. His lively narrative incorporates eyewitness accounts to tell how new Union strategy in the Trans-Mississippi theater enabled the capture of Little Rock, taking the state out of Confederate control for the rest of the war. He draws on rarely used primary sources to describe key engagements at the tactical level—particularly the battles at Arkansas Post, Helena, and Pine Bluff, which cumulatively marked a major turning point in the Trans-Mississippi. In addition to soldiers’ letters and diaries, Christ weaves civilian voices into the story—especially those of women who had to deal with their altered fortunes—and so fleshes out the human dimensions of the struggle. Extensively researched and compellingly told, Christ’s account demonstrates the war’s impact on Arkansas and fills a void in Civil War studies. Mark K. christ is Community Outreach Director for the Arkansas Historic Preservation Program, Department of Arkansas Heritage, Little Rock, and a member of the Arkansas Civil War Sesquicentennial Commission. He is the author or editor of several books on Arkansas history, including Rugged and Sublime: The Civil War in Arkansas and Getting Used to Being Shot At: The Spence Family Civil War Letters.

By Carlos Manuel Salomon
Thanks to this expertly researched and vividly written biography by a next-generation historian making a stunning debut, Pío Pico now emerges into full historical perspective as a pivotal and representative figure in the transition of California from Mexican province to American state.”—kevin starr, Professor of History, University of Southern California Two-time governor of Alta California and prominent businessman after the U.S. annexation, Pío de Jesus Pico was a politically savvy Californio who thrived in both the Mexican and the American periods. This is the first biography of Pico, whose life vibrantly illustrates the opportunities and risks faced by Mexican Americans in those transitional years.
may $24.95s Cloth 978-0-8061-4090-2 256 paGes, 5.5 x 8.5 7 b&w illus. bioGraphy/California

Carlos Manuel Salomon breathes life into the story of Pico, who—despite his mestizoblack heritage—became one of the wealthiest men in California thanks to real estate holdings and who was the last major Californio political figure with economic clout. Salomon traces Pico’s complicated political rise during the Mexican era, leading a revolt against the governor in 1831 that swept him into that office. During his second governorship in 1845 Pico fought in vain to save California from the invading forces of the United States. Pico faced complex legal and financial problems under the American regime. Salomon argues that it was Pico’s legal struggles with political rivals and land-hungry swindlers that ultimately resulted in the loss of Pico’s entire fortune. Yet as the most litigious Californio of his time, he consistently demonstrated his refusal to become a victim. Pico is an important transitional figure whose name still resonates in many Southern California locales. His story offers a new view of California history that anticipates a new perspective on the multicultural fabric of the state. carlos Manuel Salomon is Assistant Professor of Ethnic Studies and Director of the Latin American Studies Program at California State University, East Bay.

A sweeping narrative of a classic journey


so ruGGeD anD mountainous
blazing the trails to oregon and California, 1812–1848
By Will Bagley
The story of America’s westward migration is a powerful blend of fact and fable. Over the course of three decades, almost a million eager fortune-hunters, pioneers, and visionaries transformed the face of a continent—and displaced its previous inhabitants. The people who made the long and perilous journey over the Oregon and California trails drove this swift and astonishing change. In this magisterial volume, Will Bagley tells why and how this massive emigration began. While many previous authors have told parts of this story, Bagley has recast it in its entirety for modern readers. Drawing on research he conducted for the National Park Service’s Long Distance Trails Office, he has woven a wealth of primary sources—personal letters and journals, government documents, newspaper reports, and folk accounts—into a compelling narrative that reinterprets the first years of overland migration. Illustrated with photographs and historical maps, So Rugged and Mountainous is the first of a projected four-volume history, Overland West: The Story of the Oregon and California Trails. This sweeping series describes how the “Road across the Plains” transformed the American West and became an enduring part of its legacy. And by showing that overland emigration would not have been possible without the cooperation of Native peoples and tribes, it places American Indians at the center of trail history, not on its margins. Will Bagley is the author or editor of more than a dozen books on the American West, including the award-winning Pioneer Camp of the Saints and Blood of the Prophets: Brigham Young and the Massacre at Mountain Meadows.

All about the most colorful of Teddy Roosevelt’s “White House Gunfighters”

a rouGh riDe to reDemption
the ben Daniels story
By Robert K. DeArment and Jack DeMattos foreword by William B. Secrest
He may be little known today, but Ben Daniels was a feared gunman who typified the journeyman gunfighter every bit as much as those whose names have become legend. Yet his story has eluded researchers and yarn-spinners alike—until now. Two prominent western historians have teamed up to tell the story of Ben Daniels’s rise from outlaw and convict to presidential protégé and high-ranking officer of the law. Tracing his life from jailhouse to White House, from Dodge City to San Juan Hill, Robert DeArment and Jack DeMattos present a full-length biography of Daniels, the most controversial of Teddy Roosevelt’s “White House Gunfighters.” The book faithfully traces Daniels’s early years, the time he spent in the Wyoming Territorial Penitentiary, his rebirth as a Dodge City lawman—including the controversy over his shooting a man in the back—and his part in the Battle of Cimarron. Following military service with the Rough Riders in the Spanish-American War, Daniels was appointed by President Roosevelt as U.S. marshal for turbulent Arizona Territory. Daniels was as quick with his mind as with a gun, but he had a rough ride to redemption. This original biography belongs on the shelf of every gunfighter buff and anyone interested in the broader story of the Old West. It rescues Daniels from the footnotes of history and shows us the amazing life of one of the West’s most intriguing gunmen.

Resurrects more unknown gunslingers from the shadows of history


DeaDly DoZen, volume 3
forgotten Gunfighters of the old west
By Robert K. DeArment
For every Wild Bill Hickok or Billy the Kid, there was another western gunfighter just as deadly but not as well known. Robert K. DeArment has earned a reputation as the premier researcher of unknown gunfighters, and here he offers twelve more portraits of men who weren’t glorified in legend but were just as notorious in their day. Those who think they already know all about Old West gunfighters will be amazed at this new collection. Here are men like Porter Stockton, the Texas terror who bragged that he had killed eighteen men, and Jim Levy, who killed a man for disparaging his Irish blood, though he was also the only known Jewish gunfighter. These stories span eight decades, from the gold rushes of the 1850s to the 1920s. Telling of gunmen such as Jim Masterson, the brother of Bat Masterson, or the real Whispering Smith—the man behind the fictionalized persona—whose career spanned four decades, DeArment conscientiously separates fact from fiction to reconstruct lives all the more amazing for having remained unknown for so long. The product of iron-clad research, this newest Deadly Dozen delivers the goods for gunfighter buffs in search of something different. Together the Deadly Dozen volumes constitute a Who’s Who of western outlaws and prove that there’s more to the Wild West than Jesse James. robert K. DeArment is the author of numerous books about law and order in the American West, including Deadly Dozen, volumes 1 and 2, and Ballots and Bullets: The Bloody County Seat Wars of Kansas.

A new look at how democratic values and civic republicanism shaped South Dakota political culture

pr airie republiC
the political Culture of Dakota territory, 1879–1889
By Jon K. Lauck
“Seldom is a major aspect of a historical period researched, written, and interpreted as brilliantly as Jon Lauck has done here. This very important book not only adds much to South Dakota history but also demonstrates methods and approaches that could well be used in studying other pioneer territories in the Midwest.” —Gilbert C. fite, author of The Farmers’ Frontier, 1865–1900 American democratic ideals, civic republicanism, public morality, and Christianity were the dominant forces at work during South Dakota’s formative decade. What? In our cynical age, such a claim seems either remarkably naïve or hopelessly outdated. Territorial politics in the late-nineteenth-century West is typically viewed as a closeddoor game of unprincipled opportunism or is caricatured, as in the classic film The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance, as a drunken exercise in bombast and rascality. Now Jon K. Lauck examines anew the values we like to think were at work during the founding of our western states. Taking Dakota Territory as a laboratory for examining a formative stage of western politics, Lauck finds that settlers from New England and the Midwest brought democratic practices and republican values to the northern plains and invoked them as guiding principles in the drive for South Dakota statehood. Prairie Republic corrects an overemphasis on class conflict and economic determinism, factors posited decades ago by such historians as Howard R. Lamar. Instead, Lauck finds South Dakota’s political founders to be agents of Protestant Christianity and of civic republicanism—an age-old ideology that entrusted the polity to independent, landowning citizens who placed the common interest above private interest. Focusing on the political culture widely shared among settlers attracted to the Great Dakota Boom of the 1880s, Lauck shows how they embraced civic virtue, broad political participation, and agrarian ideals. Family was central in their lives, as were commonschool education, work, and Christian community. In rescuing the story of Dakota’s settlers from historical obscurity, Prairie Republic dissents from the recent darker portrayal of western history and expands our view and understanding of the American democratic tradition. Historian and attorney Jon K. Lauck is Senior Advisor to U.S. Senator John Thune of South Dakota and the author of Daschle vs. Thune: Anatomy of a High-Plains Senate Race and American Agriculture and the Problem of Monopoly.

The bitter yet poignant story of the Nez Perces who escaped into Canada

GReeNe BeyOnD BeAr’S PAW

beyonD bear’s paw
the nez perce indians in Canada
By Jerome A. Greene
In the fall of 1877, Nez Perce (Nimiipuu) Indians were desperately fleeing U.S. Army troops. After a 1,700-mile journey across Idaho, Wyoming, and Montana, the Nez Perces headed for the Canadian border, hoping to find refuge in the land of the White Mother, Queen Victoria. But the army caught up with them at the Bear’s Paw Mountains in northern Montana, and following a devastating battle, Chief Joseph and most of his people surrendered. The wrenching tale of Chief Joseph and his followers is now legendary, but Bear’s Paw is not the entire story. In fact, nearly three hundred Nez Perces escaped the U.S. Army and fled into Canada. Beyond Bear’s Paw is the first book to explore the fate of these “nontreaty” Indians. Drawing on hitherto unexplored Canadian and U.S. sources, including reminiscences of Nez Perce participants, Jerome A. Greene presents an epic story of human endurance under duress. Greene vividly describes the tortuous journey of the small band who managed to elude Colonel Nelson A. Miles’s command. After the escapees crossed the “Medicine Line” into the British Possessions, they found only new trauma. Within a few years, most of them stole back to their homelands in Idaho Territory. Those who remained north of the line faced a difficult and uncertain future. In recent years, Nimiipuu descendants from the United States and Canada have revisited their common past and sought reconciliation. Beyond Bear’s Paw offers new perspectives on the Nez Perces’ struggle for freedom, their hapless rejection, and their ultimate cultural renewal. Jerome A. greene is retired as Research Historian for the National Park Service. He is the author of numerous books, including Stricken Field: The Little Bighorn since 1876.

The story of an overlooked but important Apache leader

Chief loCo
apache peacemaker
By Bud Shapard
Jlin-tay-i-tith, better known as Loco, was the only Apache leader to make a lasting peace with both Americans and Mexicans. Yet most historians have ignored his efforts, and some Chiricahua descendants have branded him as fainthearted despite his well-known valor in combat. In this engaging biography, Bud Shapard tells the story of this important but overlooked chief against the backdrop of the harrowing Apache wars and eventual removal of the tribe from its homeland to prison camps in Florida, Alabama, and Oklahoma. Tracing the events of Loco’s long tenure as a leader of the Warm Springs Chiricahua band, Shapard tells how Loco steered his followers along a treacherous path of unforeseeable circumstances and tragic developments in the mid-to-late 1800s. While recognizing the near-impossibility of Apache-American coexistence, Loco persevered in his quest for peace against frustrating odds and often treacherous U.S. government policy. Even as Geronimo, Naiche, and others continued their raiding and sought to undermine Loco’s efforts, this visionary chief, motivated by his love for children, maintained his commitment to keep Apache families safe from wartime dangers. Based on extensive research, including interviews with Loco’s grandsons and other descendants, Shapard’s biography is an important counterview for historians and buffs interested in Apache history and a moving account of a leader ahead of his time. Bud Shapard is retired as Chief of the Branch of Acknowledgment and Research in the Bureau of Indian Affairs. During his career he assisted more than 120 Indian tribes and conducted research on the history of the Chiricahua Apache and Tonto Apache Indians.

An up-to-date history of the Peyote faith that emphasizes Native perspectives

Despite challenges by the federal government to restrict the use of Peyote, the Native American Church, which uses the hallucinogenic cactus as a religious sacrament, has become the largest indigenous denomination among American Indians today. The Peyote Road examines the history of the NAC, including its legal struggles to defend the controversial use of Peyote. Thomas C. Maroukis has conducted extensive interviews with NAC members and leaders to craft an authoritative account of the church’s history, diverse religious practices, and significant people. His book integrates a narrative history of the Peyote faith with analysis of its religious beliefs and practices—as well as its art and music— and an emphasis on the views of NAC members. Deftly blending oral histories and legal research, Maroukis traces the religion’s history from its Mesoamerican roots to the legal incorporation of the NAC; its expansion to the northern plains, Great Basin, and Southwest; and challenges to Peyotism by state and federal governments, including the Supreme Court decision in Oregon v. Smith. He also introduces readers to the inner workings of the NAC with descriptions of its organizational structure and the Cross Fire and Half Moon services. The Peyote Road updates Omer Stewart’s classic 1987 study of the Peyote religion by taking into consideration recent events and scholarship. In particular, Maroukis discusses not only the church’s current legal issues but also the diminishing Peyote supply and controversies surrounding the definition of membership. Today approximately 300,000 American Indians are members of the Native American Church. The Peyote Road marks a significant case study of First Amendment rights and deepens our understanding of the struggles of NAC members to practice their faith. Thomas c. Maroukis is Professor and Chair of the History Department at Capital University, Columbus, Ohio. He is the author of Peyote and the Yankton Sioux: The Life and Times of Sam Necklace.

Recounting Indians’ progress in the voting booth

ameriCan inDians anD the fiGht for equal votinG riGhts
By Laughlin McDonald
The struggle for voting rights was not limited to African Americans in the South. American Indians also faced discrimination at the polls and still do today. This book explores their fight for equal voting rights and carefully documents how non-Indian officials have tried to maintain dominance over Native peoples despite the rights they are guaranteed as American citizens. Laughlin McDonald has participated in numerous lawsuits brought on behalf of Native Americans in Montana, Colorado, Nebraska, South Dakota, and Wyoming. This litigation challenged discriminatory election practices such as at-large elections, redistricting plans crafted to dilute voting strength, unfounded allegations of election fraud on reservations, burdensome identification and registration requirements, lack of language assistance, and noncompliance with the Voting Rights Act. McDonald devotes special attention to the VRA and its amendments, whose protections are central to realizing the goal of equal political participation. McDonald describes past and present-day discrimination against Indians, including land seizures, destruction of bison herds, attempts to eradicate Native language and culture, and efforts to remove and in some cases even exterminate tribes. Because of such treatment, he argues, Indians suffer a severely depressed socioeconomic status, voting is sharply polarized along racial lines, and tribes are isolated and lack meaningful interaction with non-Indians in communities bordering reservations. Far more than a record of litigation, American Indians and the Fight for Equal Voting Rights paints a broad picture of Indian political participation by incorporating expert reports, legislative histories, newspaper accounts, government archives, and hundreds of interviews with tribal members. This in-depth study of Indian voting rights recounts the extraordinary progress American Indians have made and looks toward a more just future. Laughlin McDonald is Director of the Voting Rights Project of the American Civil Liberties Union. He is the author of numerous books and articles on voting rights policy, including A Voting Rights Odyssey: Black Enfranchisement in Georgia.

An important research tool regarding a Native American literary icon


n. sCott momaDay
remembering ancestors, earth, and traditions an annotated bio-bibliography
By Phyllis S. Morgan Introduction by Kenneth Lincoln
N. Scott Momaday, Pulitzer Prize–winning author of House Made of Dawn (1969) and National Medal of Arts awardee, is the elder statesman of Native American literature and a major twentieth-century American author. This volume marks the most comprehensive resource available on Momaday. Along with an insightful new biography, it offers extensive, up-to-date bibliographies of his own work and the work of others about him. Phyllis Morgan’s account of Momaday’s life and career and her chronology of his accomplishments, including his many awards and honors, are based on wide-ranging research and recent interviews in which she elicited Momaday’s thoughts on topics and periods of his life that he has not previously touched on. The biography captures his formative years, expands on his academic career, and reflects a deep understanding of his work. The comprehensive annotated bibliography of Momaday’s published work catalogs his output through mid-2009, including books, stories, essays, poems, newspaper columns, forewords and introductions, play scripts, and interviews. Morgan has also compiled an extensive listing of works about Momaday and his multifaceted output, including books, critical essays, reviews, newspaper articles, reference sources, online resources, and dissertations and theses. In the introduction, literary scholar Kenneth Lincoln offers additional insight into Momaday’s poetry and prose. With Momaday having observed his 75th birthday in 2009, this book showcases his accomplishments as it captures his dedication to family and ancestors, to the sacredness of Earth, and to the traditions of Native and indigenous peoples. It is an indispensable and foundational research tool and a worthy tribute to a literary icon. Retired from a 40-year career as a reference and research librarian, educator, and information specialist, Phyllis S. Morgan is now an independent researcher and writer. She is author of the award-winning bio-bibliographies Marc Simmons of New Mexico: Maverick Historian and A Sense of Place: Rudolfo A. Anaya (coauthored with Cesar A. González-T.). Kenneth Lincoln, Professor of Literature, University of California, Los Angeles, is author of many essays and books, including Speak Like Singing: Classics of Native American Literature.

A dramatic story of survival and rebirth during the twentieth century

the seminole nation of okl ahoma
a legal history
By L. Susan Work foreword by Lindsay G. Robertson
When it adopted a new constitution in 1969, the Seminole Nation was the first of the Five Tribes in Oklahoma to formally reorganize its government. In the face of an American legal system that sought either to destroy its nationhood or to impede its self-government, the Seminole Nation tenaciously retained its internal autonomy, cultural vitality, and economic subsistence. Here, L. Susan Work draws on her experience as a tribal attorney to present the first legal history of the twentiethcentury Seminole Nation. Work traces the Seminoles’ story from their removal to Indian Territory from Florida in the late nineteenth century to the new challenges of the twenty-first century. She also places the history of the Seminole Nation within the context of general Indian law and policy, thereby revealing common threads in the legal struggles and achievements of the Five Tribes, including their evolving relationships with both federal and state governments. As Work amply demonstrates, the history of the Seminole Nation is one of survival and rebirth. It is a dramatic story of an Indian nation overcoming formidable obstacles to move forward into the twenty-first century as a thriving sovereign nation. L. Susan Work, a member of the Choctaw Nation, is an Oklahoma attorney who practices tribal and federal Indian law. Lindsay g. robertson, Judge Haskell A. Holloman Professor of Law and Faculty Director of the American Indian Law and Policy Center at the University of Oklahoma, is author of Conquest by Law: How the Discovery of America Dispossessed Indigenous Peoples of Their Lands.

The most comprehensive description of Kiowa military societies ever published


kiowa military soCieties
ethnohistory and ritual
By William C. Meadows
Warrior culture has long been an important facet of Plains Indian life. For Kiowa Indians, military societies have special significance. They serve not only to honor veterans and celebrate and publicize martial achievements but also to foster strong role models for younger tribal members. To this day, these societies serve to maintain traditional Kiowa values, culture, and ethnic identity. Previous scholarship has offered only glimpses of Kiowa military societies. William C. Meadows now provides a detailed account of the ritual structures, ceremonial composition, and historical development of each society: Rabbits, Mountain Sheep, Horses Headdresses, Black Legs, Skunkberry /Unafraid of Death, Scout Dogs, Kiowa Bone Strikers, and Omaha, as well as past and present women’s groups. Two dozen illustrations depict personages and ceremonies, and an appendix provides membership rosters from the late 1800s. The most comprehensive description ever published on Kiowa military societies, this work is unmatched by previous studies in its level of detail and depth of scholarship. It demonstrates the evolution of these groups within the larger context of American Indian history and anthropology, while documenting and preserving tribal traditions. William c. Meadows is Associate Professor of Anthropology and Native American Studies at Missouri State University, Springfield. A scholar of Plains Indian cultures, he is the author of Kiowa, Apache, and Comanche Military Societies; The Comanche Code Talkers of World War II; and Kiowa Ethnography.

Exploring continuities between pre-Columbian religion and Christianity

fr aminG the saCreD
the indian Churches of early Colonial mexico
By eleanor Wake
Christian churches erected in Mexico during the early colonial era represented the triumph of European conquest and religious domination. Or did they? Building on recent research that questions the “cultural” conquest of Mesoamerica, Eleanor Wake shows that colonial Mexican churches also reflected the beliefs of the indigenous communities that built them. European authorities failed to recognize that the meaning of the edifices they so admired was being challenged: pre-Columbian iconography integrated into Christian imagery, altars oriented toward indigenous sacred landmarks, and carefully recycled masonry. In Framing the Sacred, Wake examines how the art and architecture of Mexico’s religious structures reveals the indigenous people’s own decisions regarding the conversion program and their accommodation of the Christian message.
april $65.00s Cloth 978-0-8061-4033-9 368 paGes, 8 x 10 238 b&w illus., 26 Color photos, 1 map latin ameriCa

As Wake shows, native peoples selected aspects of the invading culture to secure their own culture’s survival. In focusing on anomalies present in indigenous art and their relationship to orthodox Christian iconography, she draws on a wide geographical sampling across various forms of Indian artistic expression, including religious sculpture and painting, innovative architectural detail, cartography, and devotional poetry. She also offers a detailed analysis of documented native ritual practices that— she argues—assist in the interpretation of the imagery. With more than 200 illustrations, including 24 in color, Framing the Sacred is the most extensive study to date of the indigenous aspects of these churches and fosters a more complete understanding of Christianity’s influence on Mexican peoples.

An inside look at an oppressive phase of Spanish colonization


bonfires of Culture
franciscans, indigenous leaders, and the inquisition in early mexico, 1524–1540
By Patricia Lopes Don
In their efforts to convert indigenous peoples, Franciscan friars brought the Spanish Inquisition to early-sixteenth-century Mexico. Patricia Lopes Don now investigates these trials to offer an inside look at this brief but consequential episode of Spanish methods of colonization, providing a fresh interpretation of an early period that has remained too long understudied. Drawing on previously underutilized records of Inquisition proceedings, Don examines four of the most important trials of native leaders to uncover the Franciscans’ motivations for using the Inquisition and the indigenous response to it. She focuses on the consecutive impact of four trials—against nahualli Martín Ocelotl, an influential native priest; Andrés Mixcoatl, an advocate of open resistance to the Franciscans; Miguel Pochtecatl Tlaylotla, a guardian of native religious artifacts; and Don Carlos of Texcoco, a native chief burned at the stake for heresy. Don reveals the heart of Bishop Zumárraga’s methods of conducting the trials—including spectacular bonfires in which any native idols found in the possession of professed converts were destroyed. Don’s knowledge of the contemporary Spain that shaped the friars’ perspectives enables her to offer new understanding of the evolution of Franciscan attitudes toward evangelization. Bonfires of Culture reexamines important primary documents and offers a new perspective on a pivotal historical era. Patricia Lopes Don is Associate Professor of History at San Jose State University. She is the author of several scholarly articles on colonial Mexico and early modern Spain.

Uncovers a remarkable artist’s life and showcases the full breadth of his artistic legacy

follow the sun
robert lougheed
By Don Hedgpeth
He was the man behind Mobil Oil Company’s legendary flying Pegasus and the creator of numerous magazine covers familiar to a generation of readers. Yet even when fully engaged in commissioned work, Robert Lougheed never ceased to paint for himself, as well, and never drew a divide between the two. Both were about expressing the essence and particularity of life. Lougheed was a true “painter’s painter.” Follow the Sun is the first book to showcase the full breadth of Lougheed’s artistic legacy. More than 400 full-color reproductions trace his trajectory from early Canadian studies of working horses to commercial work to western scenes and timeless plein-air oils of European subjects, with much in between. A quiet, confident man dedicated to painting, Robert Lougheed was born in 1910 and grew up on a farm in Ontario, Canada, the reins of a working horse in one hand and a drawing pencil in the other. After a youthful stint as a newspaper illustrator for the Toronto Star, he studied in New York with Dean Cornwell and Frank Vincent DuMond of the famed Art Students League. After earning a place among renowned illustrators, Lougheed joined the Cowboy Artists of America and helped found the National Academy of Western Art. Both honored him with multiple awards. He painted prolifically abroad, bringing back scores of fresh oils, watercolors, and sketches from France and England. Wherever he traveled—the Virgin Islands, Hawaii, Alaska, or the American Southwest—he painted incessantly. He mentored many young artists, schooling them in his “creative truth,” which included the necessity of creating from life rather than photographs. Wherever he went, he found horses, and he honored them through his art. Author Don Hedgpeth makes clear why “contemporary western art owes a major debt of gratitude to Bob Lougheed.” This book takes a long stride toward repaying that debt and introduces a remarkable artist to any who have not yet had the pleasure. Freelance writer and western historian Don Hedgpeth is founding editor of Persimmon Hill, the journal of the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City, and the author or coauthor of more than a dozen books, including Traildust: Cowboys, Cattle, and Country: The Art of James Reynolds and Howard Terpning: Spirit of the Plains People. A fifth-generation Texan, he lives near San Antonio.

A groundbreaking examination of power relations in Roman elegy


the erotiCs of Domination
male Desire and the mistress in latin love poetry
By ellen Greene
“Greene’s sensitive and highly readable feminist study of power relations in Roman love poetry should be on every reading list for relevant university courses, for it brings together ideas about gender and poetry which, in the last decade or so, have been very influential but rather diffuse, and does so in an accessible manner.” —JOuRnaL Of ROman StudIES “A landmark study. The Erotics of Domination figures on any serious reading list for Golden Age Latin poetry.”—paul allen miller, author of Latin Love Poetry and the Emergence of the Real In recent decades, scholars in the field of classics have paid increasing attention to gender and sexual politics in Latin elegiac poetry. In The Erotics of Domination, Ellen Greene re-examines long-held scholarly attitudes concerning the representation of male sexual desire and female subjection in the Latin love poetry of Catullus, Propertius, and Ovid. Analyzing first-person poetic personae that critics have often romanticized, Greene finds that whereas the Catullan lover appears to struggle against his own “feminization,” the Roman elegiac poets—particularly Propertius and Ovid—proclaim a radically unconventional philosophy in their seemingly deliberate inversion of conventional sex roles. Through the servitude of the male lover to his mistress, the woman achieves, at least nominally, complete domination and control over him. ellen greene is the Joseph Paxton Presidential Professor of Classics at the University of Oklahoma. She is the author or editor of several books, including most recently The New Sappho on Old Age.

MILLeR, PLATTeR PLATO’S Apology of SocrAteS

new books spring/summer 2010

A student-friendly edition of a timeless classic

pl ato’s apOLOGy Of SOCR atES
a Commentary
By Paul Allen Miller and Charles Platter
The significance of Plato’s Apology of Socrates is impossible to overestimate. An account of the famous trial of Socrates in 399 b.c., it appeals to historians, philosophers, political scientists, classicists, and literary critics. It is also essential reading for students of ancient Greek. This new commentary on Plato’s canonical work is designed to accommodate the needs of students in intermediate-level Greek classes, where they typically encounter the Apology for the first time. Paul Allen Miller and Charles Platter, two highly respected classicists and veteran instructors, present the Apology in its traditional thirty-three-chapter structure. They amplify the text with running commentary and glosses of unfamiliar words at the bottom of each page; brief chapter introductions to relevant philosophical, historical, and rhetorical issues; and a separate series of thought-provoking essays, one on each chapter. The essays can serve as bases for class discussions or as starting points for paper topics or general reflection. By integrating background material into the text at regular intervals rather than frontloading it in a lengthy initial overview or burying it in back-of-the-book endnotes, the authors offer students a rich encounter with the text. Their commentary incorporates the latest research on both the trial of Socrates and Plato’s version of it, and it engages major philosophical issues from a contemporary perspective. This book is not only a much-needed aid for students of Greek. It is also the basis of a complete course on the Apology. Paul Allen Miller is Carolina Distinguished Professor of Classics and Comparative Literature at the University of South Carolina. charles Platter is Professor of Classics and Department Head at the University of Georgia.

A lively survey encompassing the Orient, the Americas, and the classical world


sport in anCient times
By Nigel B. Crowther
From the Olympic Games of Greece to the gladiatorial contests of Rome, sport in the ancient world was fiercely competitive and included a wider range of physical contests than we moderns might suspect. The early Chinese played forms of polo and golf, while half a world away, Hohokam and Maya Indians enjoyed team ball games. Nigel Crowther, a leading authority on classical Greek sport, here casts his net over the entire ancient world to reveal the variety, and often the intensity, of sport in earlier times, from 3000 b.c.e. to the Middle Ages. Taking in twenty premodern societies on five continents—with particular emphasis on ancient Greece and Rome and the Byzantine Empire—he traces connections to modern sporting attitudes, practices, and institutions as he describes how athletics figured in cultural arenas that extended beyond physical prowess to ritual, social status, military associations, and politics. Crowther takes us back to the birth of sumo wrestling in Japan and describes the sports of the Sumerians and Hittites. He documents bull leaping and boxing as recorded on pottery in Crete, as well as running and archery as practiced by the pharaohs in Egypt. He shows the significance of the early Olympic Games, describes the Romans’ use of gladiatorial contests for political ends, and analyzes the influence of Byzantine chariot racing on society. He also notes the changing role of women in ancient sports—from their prominence in Egyptian contests, to the mythological Atalanta, to female Roman gladiators. As informative as it is entertaining, Sport in Ancient Times opens new vistas for general readers, students, and sport historians. It offers a broad look at ancient sport and will enrich readers’ appreciation of games they enjoy today. nigel B. crowther is Professor of Classical Studies at the University of Western Ontario and former Director of the International Centre for Olympic Studies.

People of the Wind River tells the story of the Eastern Shoshones through eight tumultuous decades—from 1825, when they reached mutual accommodations with the first permanent Anglo-American settlers in Wind River country, to 1900, when the death of Chief Washakie marked a final break with their traditional lives as nineteenth-century Plains Indians. Drawing on extensive research in primary documents and interviews with descendants of early Shoshone leaders, Henry E. Stamm IV traces critical developments in the tribe’s history, including its migration from the Great Basin to the High Plains of present-day Wyoming and the arrival of Arapahoes in the region. After 1885, with the buffalo gone and cattle herds growing, the Eastern Shoshones entered the twentieth century with only a shadow of their earlier economic power but still secure in their spiritual traditions. Henry e. Stamm Iv is an adjunct professor of American Indian History at Idaho State University in Pocatello, Idaho.

This masterful summary represents a major synthesis of the history and culture of the Six Nations from the mid-sixteenth century to the Canandaigua treaty of 1794. William N. Fenton, renowned as the dean of Iroquoian studies, draws on primary sources, in both French and English to create a readable narrative and an invaluable reference for all future scholars of Iroquois polity. Central to Fenton’s study is the tradition of the Great Law, still practiced today by the conservative Iroquois. It is sustained by celebrations of the condolence ceremony when participants mourn a dead chief and install his successor for life on good behavior. This ritual act, reaching back to the dawn of history, maintained the League of the Iroquois, the legendary form of government that gave way over time to the Iroquois Confederacy. William n. Fenton was Professor of Anthropology at the State University of New York, Albany.

Most Southerners in the U.S. Army resigned their commissions to join the Confederacy in 1861. But at least one son of a distinguished, slaveholding Virginia family remained loyal to the Union. George H. Thomas fought for the North and was transformed by his wartime experiences from a slaveholder to a defender of civil rights. Remembered as the “Rock of Chickamauga,” Thomas became one of the most prominent Union generals and was even considered for overall command of the Union Army in Virginia. Yet he has been eclipsed in fame by the likes of Grant, Sherman, or Sheridan. Christopher J. Einolf depicts the fighting from Thomas’s perspective to allow a unique look at battlefield decision making. Brimming with new insights into Thomas’s personal character, Einolf offers a more balanced, nuanced picture than has previously been available. George Thomas: Virginian for the Union offers a fresh appraisal of an important career and lends new insight into the inner conflicts of the Civil War. christopher J. einolf is the author of The Mercy Factory: Refugees and the American Asylum System.

TeMPLe HOUSTOn lawyer with a Gun By Glenn Shirley A lively biography of Sam Houston’s illustrious son

FDr’S FIreSIDe cHATS edited by Russell D. Buhite and David W. Levy All 31 of Roosevelt’s radio talks with the American people

The youngest son of General Sam Houston and Margaret Lea Houston, Temple Lea Houston lived his comparatively short life fast and hard. From 1881 to 1905, he was one of the Southwest’s most brilliant, eccentric, and widely known criminal lawyers. This is the story of Temple Houston’s decision to give up a political future in Texas, escape the shadow of his famous father, and seek fame and fortune in Oklahoma Territory. In several high-profile cases, Houston earned fame as a silvertongued defense attorney. His clients were murderers, cattle thieves, gunfighters, and prostitutes.

On thirty-one occasions during his presidency, Franklin Delano Roosevelt went on radio to talk things over with the people of the United States. Those fireside chats, characterized by a disarming frankness and an informal and conversational tone, represent an unprecedented presidential attempt to achieve intimacy with the nation. In these addresses the president touched upon all of the issues surrounding the Depression and the New Deal and upon the events, fears, and hopes that were part of the American experience of World War II. Russell D. Buhite and David W. Levy have gathered the fireside chats for the first time in a single volume and, by careful attention to recordings and stenographic reports, present the speeches exactly as Roosevelt spoke them. In a general introduction and two additional essays, the editors discuss the importance of Roosevelt in American political history, the rise of the radio as a political tool, the issues of the day, and the way Roosevelt, aided by speech writers and advisers, prepared and delivered the chats. russell D. Buhite, Professor in the Department of History and Political Science, Missouri University of Science and Technology, Rolla, is the editor of Calls to Arms: Presidential Speeches, Messages, and Declarations of War. David W. Levy is retired as David Ross Boyd Professor of American History at the University of Oklahoma and is the author of Herbert Croly of the New Republic: The Life and Thought of an American Progressive.

cHIcKASAW renAISSAnce By Phillip Carroll Morgan Photographs by David G. fitzgerald A rich pictorial profile of the twentieth-century Chickasaw experience

HISTOry OF THe InDIeS OF neW SPAIn By fray Diego Durán Translated, Annotated, and with an Introduction by Doris Heyden A vivid exploration of the Aztec world before the Spanish conquest

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.

A sixteenth-century Dominican friar, Fray Diego Durán was born in Spain but raised in Mexico. His firsthand experience of Mexican culture and fluency in the Nahuatl language made him one of the most sympathetic and knowledgeable of the missionary-ethnographers. His History of the Indies of New Spain, newly translated by Doris Heyden, is a vivid evocation of the Aztec world before the Spanish conquest. Based on a Nahuatl chronicle now lost and on interviews with living Aztec informants, Durán’s History describes the intrigues and court life of the elite and also tells of the common people. Durán traces the history of the Aztecs from their mythic origins to the destruction of the empire, when bearded strangers came from the east in “houses floating on the water.” This definitive unabridged translation is accompanied by Heyden’s introduction and annotations, which provide background on recent studies of colonial Mexico and explanations of many details of the History. Doris Heyden, a leading scholar and author of numerous books on Aztec civilization, is Senior Researcher in Mexican History and Religion at the Mexican National Institute of Anthropology and History, and Professor of Prehispanic Art at the National Autonomous University of Mexico.

A little-known story of big environmental damage in the Golden State

murDer of a l anDsCape
the California farmer-smelter war, 1897–1916
By Khaled J. Bloom
Between 1896 and 1919, air pollution from large-scale copper smelting in northern California’s Shasta County severely damaged crops and timber in a 1,000-square-mile region, completely devastating a core area of 200 square miles. The poisons from these smelters created the nation’s largest man-made desert—a shocking contrast to the beauty of the surrounding Cascades and Trinity Alps. This book traces the development of that environmental catastrophe and explains a long, complex, and rancorous struggle that involved several corporations, hundreds of farmers and ranchers, and all levels of government. In tackling this long-neglected story—one hardly known within or beyond California—Khaled J. Bloom takes readers back to the region of that time and shows how the copper industry posed serious environmental threats from the beginning. He tells of hardscrabble settlers and gentleman farmers who rose up repeatedly in unsuccessful efforts to either clean up or shut down the smelters. What appears today as an environmental cause was really a struggle to save individual property and a way of life. Yet, as Bloom shows, the farmers never had a chance against wider public opinion and the many financial interests that benefited from copper production. Profit and power won out, and posterity was left with a mess. California still contends with the toxic legacy. Murder of a Landscape tells the long-overlooked story of California’s short-lived copper boom, presenting an interesting cross-section of society and attitudes in rural California during the Progressive Era. Offering the drama and pathos of a Davidand-Goliath tale in which Goliath wins and strides on, the book makes compelling reading for anyone interested in the industrial, political, and environmental history of the American West. Khaled J. Bloom is an independent scholar and sixth-generation Californian with family roots in both mining and farming. In addition to articles on agricultural history, medical history, and historical ecology, he is author of The Mississippi Valley’s Great Yellow Fever Epidemic of 1878.

The first book-length study of the famed Mormon militia, with a complete roster

the nauvoo leGion in illinois
a history of the mormon militia, 1841–1846
By Richard e. Bennett, Susan easton Black, and Donald Q. Cannon
When the Mormons established their theocratic city of Nauvoo on the banks of the Mississippi in 1839, they made self-defense a priority, having encountered persecution, violence, and forcible expulsion elsewhere. Organized under Illinois law, the Nauvoo Legion was a city militia made up primarily of Latter-day Saints. This comprehensive work on the history, structure, and purpose of the Nauvoo Legion traces its unique story from its founding to the Mormon exodus in 1846. An American construct in design, appearance, and function, the Nauvoo Legion quickly became one of America’s largest—and most feared—militias. The authors describe its origins, daily activities, and general conduct, including parades, sham battles, uniforms, and military operations. And they also present a new interpretation of the Legion’s essential purpose and character. Drawing upon overlooked state militia records and recently discovered archival material, they identify the thousands of citizen soldiers who served. Despite the nominal authority of the Illinois governor, the Nauvoo Legion was led by Mormon Prophet Joseph Smith. As the militia grew in strength and military prowess, neighboring non-Mormons grew wary. Soon, local fears led to violence and the killing of Smith and his brother, Hyrum, in 1844. When the Nauvoo Charter was revoked, the militia no longer enjoyed legal status and assumed a distinctly different role in Mormon affairs until it was reconstituted after the Mormon emigration to Utah. Impeccably researched and honestly told, this groundbreaking study fills a major gap in Latter-day Saint church history and adds a significant chapter to the annals of American militias. richard e. Bennett, Susan easton Black, and Donald q. cannon are Professors of Church History and Doctrine at Brigham Young University. Prof. Bennett is author of Mormons at the Missouri: Winter Quarters, 1846–1852 and We’ll Find the Place: The Mormon Exodus, 1846–1848. Prof. Black, currently an Eliza R. Snow Fellow at BYU, is author or coeditor of many books, including Nauvoo. Prof. Cannon is coeditor of the Encylopedia of Latter-day Saint History and Historical Atlas of Mormonism.

The life of the soldier and U.S. official who battled civil disobedience in Utah

GettysburG to Great salt l ake
George r. maxwell, Civil war hero and federal marshal among the mormons
By John Gary Maxwell
Following distinguished Civil War service that took one of his legs and rendered an arm useless, General George R. Maxwell was sent to Utah Territory and charged— first as Register of Land, then as U.S. marshal—with bringing the Mormons into compliance with federal law. John Gary Maxwell’s biography of General Maxwell (no relation) both celebrates an unsung war hero and presents the history of the longest episode of civil disobedience in U.S. history from the point of view of this young, non-Mormon who lived through it. With the onset of the Civil War, Maxwell volunteered for the First Michigan Cavalry and fought in most of the war’s major battles in Virginia and at Gettysburg. In his subsequent service, Maxwell waged a different war as he battled the Mormon church’s leadership over ownership of land, water, and timber. In the courts, in election outcomes, and in the legislature, Maxwell fought the Mormons’ affirmation that God’s law was superior to federal law. And as marshal, he was the first to properly conduct a federal trial in the Utah Territory, when John D. Lee was tried for the massacre of 120 Arkansas emigrants at Mountain Meadows. Gettysburg to Great Salt Lake recognizes Maxwell as both a bona fide Civil War hero and an unappreciated shaper of Utah history. His biography reveals this period through the eyes of a soldier and civil servant who embodied federal authority in Utah during its turbulent post–Civil War years.

The first thorough scholarly history of this ill-fated expedition

hanCoCk’s war
Conflict on the southern plains
By William y. Chalfant
When General Winfield Scott Hancock led a military expedition across Kansas, Colorado, and Nebraska in 1867, his purpose was a show of force that would curtail Indian raiding sparked by the Sand Creek massacre of 1864. But the havoc he and his troops wrought on the plains served only to further incite the tribes and inflame passions on both sides, disrupting U.S.-Indian relations for more than a decade. William Y. Chalfant has devoted years of research to produce a detailed narrative covering the entire scope of Hancock’s “Expedition for the Plains.” This first thorough scholarly history of the ill-conceived expedition offers an unequivocal evaluation of military strategies and a culturally sensitive interpretation of Indian motivations and reactions. Chalfant explores the vastly different ways of life that separated the Cheyennes and U.S. policymakers, and argues that neither side was willing or able to understand the needs of the other. He shows how Hancock’s efforts were counterproductive, brought untold misery to Indians and whites alike, and led to the wars of 1868. One of the most significant Indian campaigns in American history, Hancock’s War is in many ways a microcosm of all the wars between Indians and whites on the high plains. Chalfant’s sweeping narrative forms the definitive history of a questionable enterprise. William y. chalfant, a practicing attorney in Hutchinson, Kansas, is the author of Cheyennes and Horse Soldiers: The 1857 Expedition and the Battle of Solomon’s Fork, a New York Times Book Review Notable Book of the Year.

An in-depth look at the late-nineteenth-century cattle industry

hor aCe plunkett in ameriCa
an irish aristocrat on the wyoming range
By Lawrence M. Woods
When Horace Plunkett left Britain for the American West in 1879, seeking relief for lung problems, he launched a ranching career in Wyoming that influenced the cattle industry and altered the course of his own life. Previous biographers have studied his career in British politics and his involvement in the agricultural cooperative movement. Lawrence M. Woods now offers a detailed look at Plunkett’s American years. This is the first book to portray Plunkett as a major figure in the western-range cattle industry, unearthing new evidence that reveals how he mastered the microeconomics of ranching. Woods brings his own business and legal acumen to the narrative to describe how, even as other Britons failed to find fortune in the West, Plunkett continually pursued new business arrangements while navigating the thickets of American law.

Woods also shows that Plunkett’s influence carried well beyond the range. In Washington, D.C., he promoted his ideas on agricultural education and the rural cooperative movement, earning him the ear of President Theodore Roosevelt. And when the Great War broke out, Plunkett functioned as a kind of private diplomat, carrying messages back and forth between the administration of President Woodrow Wilson and the British government. Horace Plunkett in America draws on Plunkett’s extensive diaries and on American sources hitherto unexplored by previous biographers to disclose more of the man than has ever been known. Featuring three dozen illustrations, it is a definitive look at the American chapter of a distinguished career.

A day-by-day chronology of the first major campaign of the Indian wars

patriCk Connor’s war
the 1865 powder river indian expedition
By David e. Wagner
The summer of 1865 marked the transition from the Civil War to Indian war on the western plains. With the rest of the country’s attention still focused on the East, the U.S. Army began an often forgotten campaign against the Sioux, Cheyenne, and Arapaho. Led by Gen. Patrick Connor, the Powder River Indian Expedition into Wyoming sought to punish tribes for raids earlier that year. Patrick Connor’s War describes the troops’ movement into hostile territory while struggling with bad weather, supply shortages, and communication problems. David E. Wagner’s carefully assembled account carries readers along the trail of Connor’s men and allows soldiers to give firsthand impressions of the land and campaign. The author draws on journals, letters, and reports—especially the James H. Kidd Papers, a copy of Connor’s expedition report previously believed burned, and the newly discovered C. M. Lee diary—to reconstruct a day-by-day chronology that finds the men trudging, sometimes barefoot and half starved, over unforgiving terrain. The thrill and danger of buffalo hunts and skirmishes with Indians punctuated an arduous trek across the northern plains. Copious maps tie narrative to topography by plotting Connor’s route and the paths of the units under him. Also included is a detailed account of the civilian road-building expedition of James Sawyers, whose fate became intertwined with the Powder River expedition. Two dozen illustrations and biographical sketches of main players round out the work. This first major campaign of the post–Civil War Indian wars has been largely overlooked by historians—but should be no longer. Patrick Connor’s War breaks new ground by bringing the expedition to life in fascinating detail that will satisfy scholars and engage general readers. David e. Wagner (1939–2009) is the author of Powder River Odyssey: Nelson Cole’s Western Campaign of 1865, a complimentary volume on the eastern column of Connor’s command. A serious student of the Indian wars in the West, he worked with Pitney Bowes, Inc., for thirty-eight years.

Reveals the visionary behind the museum

thomas GilCrease
Contributions by Randy Ramer, Carole Klein, Kimberly Roblin, Gary Moore, Anne Morand, April Miller, and eric Singleton
The story of Thomas Gilcrease (1890–1962) is the story of the world’s first oil boom, of a state in its formative years, of marriages and fortunes made and lost—but most lastingly it is the story of how the Gilcrease collection came to exist, and how Gilcrease Museum became an unparalleled treasure house now owned by the citizens of Tulsa, Oklahoma. With over 500,000 artifacts, pieces of art, and archival gems, it is a testament to one man’s dedication and vision. In Thomas Gilcrease, the man behind that museum is revealed. Born in 1890, Thomas Gilcrease came of age at roughly the same time that Indian Territory became the forty-sixth state of the Union, in 1907. As a citizen of the Creek Nation, he received a 160-acre allotment near Kiefer—land located, as it turned out, within the famous Glenn Pool oil field. By August 1909, the forty-nine wells on this parcel were producing 25,000 barrels a month. Gilcrease and his wife began traveling the country, taking in art galleries and museums in New York City and the World’s Fair in San Francisco. It was in Tulsa, however, that he purchased Rural Courtship, his first piece of art, and began a collection that eventually contained thousands. As he advanced in age and his wealth increased, Gilcrease contemplated how to use his fortune to create something of value for future generations. In 1931 he told his friend Robert Humber of his decision: he would establish the Gilcrease Foundation, which would fund a museum, a library, and a home for underprivileged children. The ten essays in this volume, illustrated with more than 100 color images and rarely seen historical photographs, tell the story of one man’s life and legacy. The contributors include present and former staff of the Gilcrease Museum and regular contributors to its journal. “Every man must leave a track,” Gilcrease once said, “and it might as well be a good one.”

Highlights the work of contemporary Oklahoma artists

art of the okl ahoma state Capitol
the senate Collection
By Bob Burke
Exploring Oklahoma through paintings and sculpture, Art of the Oklahoma State Capitol examines the history of the state from the Indian Territory period through the twentieth century and beyond. Focusing on the art collected by Senator Charles Ford and sponsored by the Oklahoma State Senate Historical Preservation Fund, it reveals—through the vision of talented artists from around the state—the personalities of those who have shaped Oklahoma’s past and present. Art of the Oklahoma State Capitol is divided into five sections, each detailing different aspects of the Oklahoma experience. The first section, “Oklahoma’s People,” features portraits of the famous as well as the ordinary men and women who challenged themselves and those around them to improve life for the citizens of the state and of the nation. The next section, “Oklahoma’s Beauty,” examines the state’s ever-changing landscape, from the Tall Grass Prairie to the flatland of the Panhandle. The section “Living History” presents paintings of historical scenes, both international and local. Sections on bronze sculpture and nineteenth-century lithographs by McKenny and Hall round out the book and demonstrate the depth of the Senate Collection. Senator Ford has personally selected each work of art in this unique collection. Showcasing works by Charles Banks Wilson, Mike Wimmer, Linda Tuma Roberston, and many others, this book highlights some of the more prominent contemporary artists working in Oklahoma. Bob Burke is the award-winning author of ninety-four books, all relating to Oklahoma. A native of Broken Bow, Oklahoma, he currently resides in Oklahoma City, where he practices law.

A retrospective of the life and work of the renowned “folklorist in wood”

will arD stone
By Randy Ramer, Carole Klein, Kimberly Roblin, and Regan Hansen
As a boy growing up in eastern Oklahoma, Willard Stone spent much of his free time drawing. Admiring the work of Michelangelo and Leonardo Da Vinci, he dreamed of becoming a painter. When he was thirteen, a dynamite cap he was holding exploded and he lost segments of two fingers and the thumb of his right hand. Deeply affected, he withdrew, thinking he would never become the artist he hoped to be. But Stone’s deep desire to create motivated him to rise above his disability. He began shaping little animal figures using the wet clay from the ditches near his home. Eventually he discovered that the medium of wood appealed to him more, and he adapted carving tools to fit his injured hand. He was transformed by his love of wood and his desire to shape it. This lavishly illustrated volume presents the life and work of Cherokee woodcarver Willard Stone. Four authors, including staff of the Gilcrease Museum and one of Stone’s grandsons, provide insight into the artist’s biography, his carving techniques, his sources of inspiration, and his legacy as an Oklahoma artist. These essays and more than 200 full-color and black-and-white photographs of Stone’s pieces follow the grain of a human life, visible in sublimely carved wood. Stone’s sculptures exhibit his love of nature, representing fertility, birth, regeneration, and the seasons while reflecting his deep understanding of the balance of nature. His masterful use of the wood grain, an integral element in his carvings, demonstrates his thoughtfulness in the planning stages of the artistic process. Referring to himself as a “folklorist in wood,” Stone carved his philosophy of life into his works, creating stories that glowed with universal truths and resonated with his own personality. In addition to his ability to create beautiful forms, it is his gift of storytelling that lends the carvings of Willard Stone their profound mark of distinction.

Showcases the range and genius of a beloved American artist

Charles banks wil son
Contributions by Randy Ramer, Carole Klein, Anne Morand, and Carol Haralson
Charles Banks Wilson is one of Oklahoma’s most beloved and accomplished artists. Known for his portraits and murals honoring great Oklahomans and Oklahoma history, and for his career-spanning series of portraits of Native Americans, his place in the history of American art is assured. This stunning book, featuring nearly two hundred reproductions of his works, celebrates both his life story and his artistic legacy. As demonstrated in this book, Wilson’s work is characterized both by technical expertise and aesthetic genius. But his place in the hearts of Americans and in the company of such great regionalists as Thomas Hart Benton is secured by his eye for the everyday truths of humbler subjects: for example, boys leaping into a swimming hole or cooks stirring the bean pot at a powwow. His work ranges widely across media; he is equally skilled in pencil, ink, watercolor, and oil, and he is a master lithographer. The contributors to this book reveal Wilson’s devotion to American heartland life through detailed analysis of his works, many from the Gilcrease Collection, created over nearly seven decades of the artist’s life. Focusing on Wilson’s life as well as his art, the contributors make a special effort to convey his artistic philosophy through his own words. As a result, this remarkable volume offers unprecedented access to the man and his work.
