Explores America's love-hate relationship with one of its most

emmons beyond the american pale

prominent immigrant groups

Beyond the American Pale

The Irish in the West, 1845–1910
By David M. Emmons
Convention has it that Irish immigrants in the nineteenth century confined themselves
mainly to industrial cities of the East and Midwest. The truth is that Irish Catholics
went everywhere in America and often had as much of a presence in the West as in the
East. In Beyond the American Pale, David M. Emmons examines this multifaceted
experience of westering Irish and, in doing so, offers a fresh and discerning account
of America’s westward expansion.

“Irish in the West” is not a historical contradiction, but it is—and was—a historical
problem. Irish Catholics were not supposed to be in the West—that was where
Protestant Americans went to reinvent themselves. For many of the same reasons
that the spread of southern slavery was thought to profane the West, a Catholic
presence there was thought to contradict it—to contradict America’s Protestant
individualism and freedom. The Catholic Irish were condemned as the clannish,
backward remnants of an old cultural world that Americans self-consciously sought $34.95 Cloth 978-0-8061-4128-2
to leave behind. The sons and daughters of Erin were not assimilated, and because 6.125 × 9.25
480 Pages
they were not assimilable, they should be kept beyond the American pale. Western History

As Emmons amply demonstrates, however, western reality was far more complicated.
Irish Catholicism may have outraged Protestant-inspired American republicanism,
but Irish Catholics were a necessary component of America’s equally Protestant-
inspired foray into industrial capitalism. They were also necessary to the successive
conquests of the “frontier,” wherever it might be found. It was the Irish who helped
build the railroads, dig the hard rocks, man the army posts, and do the other arduous,
dangerous, and unattractive toiling required by an industrializing society. Of related interest

With vigor and panache, Emmons describes how the West was not so much won as The Irish General

A stark portrayal of homesteading and family hardship

McLaughlin bound like grass

Bound Like Grass

A Memoir from the Western High Plains
By Ruth McLaughlin
Foreword by Dee Garceau-Hagen
At the start of this haunting memoir, Ruth McLaughlin returns to the site of her
childhood home in rural eastern Montana. In place of her family’s house, she finds
only rubble and a blackened chimney. A fire has taken the old farmstead and with
it ninety-seven years of hard-luck memories. Amidst the ruins, a lone tree survives,
reminding her of her family’s stubborn will to survive despite hardships that included
droughts, hunger, and mental illness.

Bound Like Grass is McLaughlin’s account of her own—and her family’s—struggle to

survive on their isolated wheat and cattle farm. With acute observation, she explores
her roots as a descendant of Swedish American grandparents who settled in Montana
at the turn of the twentieth century with high ambitions, and of parents who barely
october managed to eke out a living on their own neighboring farm.
$24.95 CLOTH 978-0-8061-4137-4
5.5 × 8.5 In unvarnished prose, McLaughlin reveals the costs of homesteading on such
200 PAGES unforgiving land, including emotional impoverishment and a necessary thrift
bordering on deprivation. Yet in this bleak world, poverty also inspired ingenuity.
Ruth learned to self-administer a fashionable razor haircut, ignoring slashes to her
hands; her brother taught himself to repair junk cars until at last he built one to carry
him far away. Ruth also longs for a richer, brighter life, but when she finally departs, she
finds herself an alien in a modern world of relative abundance. While leaving behind a
life of hardship and hard luck, she remains bound—like the long, intertwining roots of
prairie grass—to the land and to the memories that tie her to it.

Of related interest Ruth McLaughlin lives in Great Falls, Montana, where she teaches literacy and writing.

A captivating story from Oklahoma’s radical past

Cunningham The Green Corn Rebellion

The Green Corn Rebellion

A Novel by William Cunningham
Introduction by Nigel Anthony Sellars
These days, rural Oklahoma is the last place anybody would look for leftist rev-
olutionaries, but in 1917 the area exploded into full-blown insurrection. The state’s
tenant farmers, many of whom were Socialist Party members, viewed the Great War
in Europe as a conflict that benefited only the rich. When the federal government
enacted a draft, an uprising in eastern Oklahoma saw local townspeople skirmishing
with rebellious farmers, including whites, blacks, and American Indians. More than
250 men were arrested—some sentenced for up to ten years’ imprisonment.

This is the backdrop of William Cunningham’s powerful novel The Green Corn
Rebellion. First published in 1935, it tells the story of Jim Tetley, who wants simply
to be a good farmer—if the banks will only let him. As Jim copes with poverty, family
rivalries, and community tensions, he must also weigh the need to respond to the call
for armed rebellion.
$19.95 original paperback 978-0-8061-4057-5
Although the insurrection itself succeeded only in undermining the socialist movement

state’s tumultuous history and in populist causes.

Kids of the Black Hole

Punk Rock in Postsuburban California
By Dewar MacLeod
Los Angeles rock generally conjures memories of surf music, The Doors, or Laurel
Canyon folkies. But punk? L.A.’s punk scene, while not as notorious as that of New
York City, emerged full-throated in 1977 and boasted bands like The Germs, X,
and Black Flag. This book explores how, in the land of the Beach Boys, punk rock
took hold.

As a teenager, Dewar MacLeod witnessed firsthand the emergence of the punk

subculture in Southern California. As a scholar, he here reveals the origins of an
as-yet-uncharted revolution. Having combed countless fanzines and interviewed
key participants, he shows how a marginal scene became a “mass subculture” that
democratized performance art, and he captures the excitement and creativity of a
neglected episode in rock history.

Kids of the Black Hole tells how L.A. punk developed, fueled by youth unemployment november

Along the way, MacLeod not only teases out the differences between the New York

With an intimate knowledge of bands, venues, and zines, MacLeod cuts to the heart
of L.A. punk as no one has before. Told in lively prose that will satisfy fans, Kids of

Although he was painfully reserved among strangers, the artist Charles M. Russell had
a knack for making lifelong friends. This issue of Western Passages is devoted to one
group among Russell’s diverse tribe of comrades: his fellow artists. Five distinguished
scholars consider the painters and illustrators with whom Russell associated, gauging
the contributions of some to his artistic progress and assessing the debt owed by others
to his work. Particular attention is paid to Russell’s friendships with his protégé Joe

Dishman A Perfect Gibraltar

urban warfare

A Perfect Gibraltar
The Battle for Monterrey, Mexico, 1846
By Christopher D. Dishman
For three days in the fall of 1846, U.S. and Mexican soldiers fought fiercely in the
picturesque city of Monterrey, turning the northern Mexican town, known for its
towering mountains and luxurious gardens, into one of the nineteenth century’s most
gruesome battlefields. Led by Brigadier General Zachary Taylor, graduates of the
U.S. Military Academy encountered a city almost perfectly protected by mountains,
a river, and a vast plain. Monterrey’s ideal defensive position inspired more than one
U.S. soldier to call the city “a perfect Gibraltar.” The first day of fighting was deadly
for the Americans, especially the newly graduated West Point cadets. But they soon
adjusted their tactics and began fighting building to building.

Chris D. Dishman conveys in a vivid narrative the intensity and drama of the Battle
of Monterrey, which marked the first time U.S. troops engaged in prolonged urban

Prince Maximilian of Wied, Volume 2
April–September 1833
Edited by Stephen S. Witte and Marsha V. Gallagher
Translated by William J. Orr, Paul Schach, and Dieter Karch
Foreword by J. Brooks Joyner • Introduction by Marsha V. Gallagher
Few historical chronicles are as informative and eloquent as the journal written by
Prince Maximilian of Wied as a record of his journey into the North American interior
in 1833, following the route Lewis and Clark had taken almost thirty years earlier.
Maximilian’s memorable descriptions of topography, Native peoples, and natural
history were further brought to life through the now-familiar watercolors and sketches
of Karl Bodmer, the young Swiss artist who accompanied him.

The first of the three volumes of the North American Journals recounts the prince’s
journey from Europe to St. Louis—then the edge of the frontier. Volume II vividly
narrates his experiences on the upper Missouri and offers an unparalleled view of the $85.00s leather 978-0-8061-3923-4

An African American scholar recalls an academic civil war

Henderson Race and the University

Race and the Universit y

A Memoir
By George Henderson
Foreword by David W. Levy
In 1967, George Henderson, the son of uneducated Alabama sharecroppers, accepted
a full-time professorship at the University of Oklahoma, despite his mentor’s warning
to avoid the “redneck school in a backward state.” Henderson became the university’s
third African American professor, a hire that seemed to suggest the dissolving of
racial divides. However, when real estate agents in the university town of Norman
denied the Henderson family their first three choices of homes, the sociologist and
educator realized he still faced some formidable challenges.

In this stirring memoir, Henderson recounts his formative years at the University of
Oklahoma, during the late 1960s and early 1970s. He describes in graphic detail the
obstacles that he and other African Americans faced within the university community, a
september place of “white privilege, black separatism, and campus-wide indifference to bigotry.”

about these conditions, Henderson found himself at the forefront of collective efforts
22 B&W Illus. to improve race relations at the university. Henderson is quick to acknowledge that
he and his fellow activists did not abolish all vestiges of racial oppression. But they
set in motion a host of institutional changes that continue to this day. In Henderson’s
words, “we were ordinary people who sometimes did extraordinary things.”

Capturing what was perhaps the most tumultuous era in the history of American
higher education, Race and the University includes valuable recollections of former
student activists who helped transform the University of Oklahoma into one of the
nation’s most diverse college campuses.

Reevaluates a folklorist’s legacy in American cultural history

Rodgers, hirsch America’s Folklorist

America’s Folklorist
B. A. Botkin and American Culture
Edited by Lawrence Rodgers and Jerrold Hirsch
Folklorist, writer, editor, regionalist, cultural activist—Benjamin Albert Botkin (1901–
1975) was an American intellectual who made a mark on the twentieth century,
even though most people may be unaware of it. This book, the first to reevaluate
the legacy of Botkin in the history of American culture, celebrates his centenary
through a collection of writings that assess his influence on scholarship and the
American scene.

Through his work with the Federal Writers’ Project during the New Deal, the Writers’
Unit of the Library of Congress Project, and the Archive of American Folksong,
Botkin did more to collect and disseminate the nation’s folk-cultural heritage than any
other individual in the twentieth century. This volume focuses on Botkin’s eclectic but
interrelated concerns, work, and vision and offers a detailed sense of his life, milieu,
influences, and long-term contributions.

Just as Botkin boldly cut across the boundaries between high and low, popular $34.95s cloth 978-0-8061-4111-4

career and includes the first extended analysis of Botkin’s poetry; another probes the
fruitful relationships Botkin had with leading musicologists, composers, poets, and
intellectuals of his day. This is also the first book to bring together a collection of
Botkin’s best-known writings, giving readers an opportunity to appreciate his wide-
ranging mind and clear, often memorable prose.

For Botkin, the blurring of art and science, literature and folklore was not just a
philosophy but a way of life. This book reflects that life and invites fans and those
new to Botkin to appraise his lasting contributions.

The forgotten—and dramatic—story of two sharpshooting performers

Kuntz A Pair of Shootists

A Pair of Shootists
The Wild West Story of S. F. Cody and Maud Lee
By Jerry Kuntz
In 1888, Samuel F. Cody, a twenty-one-year-old horse wrangler, met Maud Lee, a
sixteen-year-old aspiring circus performer, while touring with the Wild West show
cast of Adam Forepaugh’s Circus. A quick rapport developed between the girl from
Norristown, Pennsylvania, and the cowboy who dazzled audiences with his good
looks and fancy pistol shooting.

A Pair of Shootists is the exuberant and sometimes heartbreaking story of the elusive
S. F. Cody and his first wife, Maud Lee. Recounting their many dramatic exploits,
this biography also overturns the frequently romanticized view of Wild West shows.

Living the erratic lives of touring performers, S. F. Cody—who changed his name
to capitalize on his resemblance to William F. “Buffalo Bill” Cody—and Maud
Lee first appeared together in vaudeville halls and dime museums. Setbacks in the
september United States made Cody and Lee eager to try their luck abroad, so they traveled to
$29.95s cloth 978-0-8061-4149-7 Great Britain, where they played music halls and acted in burlesques on roller-skates
5.5 × 8.5
224 pages
and in extravagant arena exhibitions. When the two performers eventually parted
26 b&w illus. ways, author Jerry Kuntz masterfully splits their stories into two. From there, he
follows their individual ups and downs, including Cody’s soaring career in pioneer
aeronautics and Lee’s decline into mental illness and addiction. In an ironic twist,
Maud’s professional life ended amidst a vast misunderstanding that brought her into
conflict with the woman she had been emulating her entire career: Annie Oakley.

While other biographies focus mainly on Cody’s contribution to aviation, Kuntz uses
sources previously unavailable to scholars to paint a more complete picture of Cody’s
early years and to recover the forgotten—and ultimately tragic—story of Maud Lee.

The true story of one of America’s most fascinating outlaws

Boessenecker Bandido
The Life and Times of Tiburcio Vasquez
By John Boessenecker
Tiburcio Vasquez is, next to Joaquin Murrieta, America’s most infamous Hispanic
bandit. After he was hanged as a murderer in 1875, the Chicago Tribune called him
“the most noted desperado of modern times.” Yet questions about him still linger.
Why did he become a bandido? Why did so many Hispanics protect him and his band?
Was he a common thief and heartless killer who got what he deserved, or was he a
Mexican American Robin Hood who suffered at the hands of a racist government? In
this engrossing biography, John Boessenecker provides definitive answers.

Bandido pulls back the curtain on a life story shrouded in myth—a myth created
by Vasquez himself and abetted by writers who saw a tale ripe for embellishment.
Boessenecker traces his subject’s life from his childhood in the seaside adobe village
of Monterey, to his years as a young outlaw engaged in horse rustling and robbery.
Two terms in San Quentin failed to tame Vasquez, and he instigated four bloody
prison breaks that left twenty convicts dead. After his final release from prison, he led $34.95s cloth 978-0-8061-4127-5

From dusty court records, forgotten memoirs, and moldering newspaper archives,
Boessenecker draws a story of violence, banditry, and retribution on the early California
frontier that is as accurate as it is colorful. Enhanced by numerous photographs—
many published here for the first time—Bandido also addresses important issues of
racism and social justice that remain relevant to this day.

Miller Open Range

Open Range
The Life of Agnes Morley Cleaveland
By Darlis A. Miller
Agnes Morley Cleaveland found lasting fame after publishing her memoir, No Life
for a Lady, in 1941. Her account of growing up on a cattle ranch in west-central
New Mexico captivated readers from coast to coast, and it remains in print to this
day. In her book, Cleaveland memorably portrayed herself and other ranchwomen as
capable workers and independent thinkers. Her life, however, was not limited to the
ranch. In Open Range, Darlis A. Miller expands our understanding of Cleaveland’s
significance, showing how a young girl who was a fearless risk-taker grew up to be a
prolific author and well-known social activist.

Following a hardscrabble childhood in remote regions of northern and central New

Mexico, and then many years of rigorous education, Agnes Morley married Newton
Cleaveland in 1899. The couple took up primary residence in Berkeley, California,

Explores a unique and eclectic culture rooted in African traditions

Mock Dreaming with the Ancestors

Dreaming with the Ancestors
Black Seminole Women in Texas and Mexico
By Shirley Boteler Mock
Indian freedmen and their descendants have garnered much public and scholarly
attention, but women’s roles have largely been absent from that discussion. Now
a scholar who gained an insider’s perspective into the Black Seminole community
in Texas and Mexico offers a rare and vivid picture of these women and their
contributions. In Dreaming with the Ancestors, Shirley Boteler Mock explores
the role that Black Seminole women have played in shaping and perpetuating a
culture born of African roots and shaped by southeastern Native American and
Mexican influences.

Mock reveals a unique maroon culture, forged from an eclectic mixture of religious
beliefs and social practices. At its core is an amalgam of African-derived traditions
kept alive by women. The author interweaves documentary research with extensive
interviews she conducted with leading Black Seminole women to uncover their Volume 4 in the Race and Culture in the

A history of the Pawnee Scouts, from their perspective

Van De Logt War Party in Blue

War Part y in Blue

Pawnee Scouts in the U.S. Army
By Mark van de Logt
Foreword by Walter R. Echo-Hawk
Between 1864 and 1877, during the height of the Plains Indian wars, Pawnee Indian
scouts rendered invaluable service to the United States Army. They led missions deep
into contested territory, tracked resisting bands, spearheaded attacks against enemy
camps, and on more than one occasion saved American troops from disaster on
the field of battle. In War Party in Blue, Mark van de Logt tells the story of the
Pawnee scouts from their perspective, detailing the battles in which they served and
recounting hitherto neglected episodes.

Employing military records, archival sources, and contemporary interviews with

current Pawnee tribal members—some of them descendants of the scouts—Van de
Logt presents the Pawnee scouts as central players in some of the army’s most notable
september campaigns. He argues that military service allowed the Pawnees to fight their tribal

According to the author, it was the tribe’s martial traditions, deeply embedded in their
culture, that made them successful and allowed them to retain these time-honored
traditions. The Pawnee style of warfare, based on stealth and surprise, was so effective
that the scouts’ commanding officers did little to discourage their methods. Although
the scouts proudly wore the blue uniform of the U.S. Cavalry, they never ceased to be
Pawnees. The Pawnee Battalion was truly a war party in blue.

From Cochise to Geronimo

The Chiricahua Apaches, 1874–1886
By Edwin R. Sweeney

“Sweeney’s scholarship could not be more sound.”—Robert M. Utley, author of

The Lance and the Shield: The Life and Times of Sitting Bull

In the decade after the death of their revered chief Cochise in 1874, the Chiricahua
Apaches struggled to survive as a people and their relations with the U.S. government
further deteriorated. In From Cochise to Geronimo, Edwin R. Sweeney builds on his
previous biographies of Chiricahua leaders Cochise and Mangas Coloradas to offer
a definitive history of the turbulent period between Cochise’s death and Geronimo’s
surrender in 1886.

Sweeney shows that the cataclysmic events of the 1870s and 1880s stemmed in part
from seeds of distrust sown by the American military in 1861 and 1863. In 1876 and Volume 268 in The Civilization of the
1877, the U.S. government proposed moving the Chiricahuas from their ancestral American Indian Series

Sweeney draws on American and Mexican archives, some only recently opened,
to offer a balanced account of life on and off the reservation in the 1870s and
1880s. From Cochise to Geronimo details the Chiricahuas’ ordeal in maintaining
their identity despite forced relocations, disease epidemics, sustained warfare, and
confinement. Resigned to accommodation with Americans but intent on preserving
their culture, they were determined to survive as a people.

Getting Good Crops

Economic and Diplomatic Survival Strategies of the
Montana Bitterroot Salish Indians, 1870–1891
By Robert J. Bigart
In 1870, the Bitterroot Salish Indians—called “Flatheads” by the first white explorers
to encounter them—were a small tribe living on the western slope of the Northern
Rocky Mountains in Montana Territory. Pressures on the Salish were intensifying
during this time, from droughts and dwindling resources to aggressive neighboring
tribes and Anglo-American expansion. In 1891, the economically impoverished
Salish accepted government promises of assistance and retreated to the Flathead
Reservation, more than sixty miles from their homeland.

In Getting Good Crops, Robert J. Bigart examines the full range of available sources
to explain how the Salish survived into the twentieth century, despite their small
numbers, their military disadvantages, and the aggressive invasion of white settlers
Volume 266 in The Civilization of the
American Indian Series who greedily devoured their land and its natural resources.

Bigart argues that a key to the survival of the Salish, from the early nineteenth century
onward, was their diplomatic agility and willingness to form strategic alliances and

steps to sustain themselves economically. Although hunting and gathering had been
their mainstay for centuries, the Salish began farming—“getting good crops”—to
feed themselves because buffalo were becoming increasingly scarce.

Raised on the Flathead Reservation himself, the author is seeking to convey the Salish
story from their perspective, despite the paucity of written Salish testimony. What
emerges is a picture—both inspiring and heartbreaking—of a people maintaining
autonomy against all odds.

Life at the Kiowa, Comanche,
and Wichita Agency
The Photographs of Annette Ross Hume
By Kristina L. Southwell and John R. Lovett
Anadarko, Oklahoma, bills itself today as the “Indian Capital of the Nation,” but
it was a drowsy frontier village when budding photographer Annette Ross Hume
arrived in 1890. Home to a federal agency charged with serving the many American
Indian tribes in the area, the town burgeoned when the U.S. government auctioned
off building lots at the turn of the twentieth century. Hume faithfully documented
its explosive growth and the American Indians she encountered. Her extraordinary
photographs are collected here for the first time.

In their introduction, authors Kristina L. Southwell and John R. Lovett provide an

illuminating biography of Hume, focusing on her life in Anadarko and the development
of her photographic skills. Born in 1858, in Perrysburg, Ohio, Hume moved to
Oklahoma Territory with her husband after he accepted an appointment as physician $34.95s cloth 978-0-8061-4138-1
for the Kiowa, Comanche, and Wichita Agency. She soon acquired a camera and began 9.5 × 11.5

The People Who Stayed

Southeastern Indian Writing after Removal
Edited by Geary Hobson, Janet McAdams, and Kathryn Walkiewicz
The two-hundred-year-old myth of the “vanishing” American Indian still holds some
credence in the American Southeast, the region from which tens of thousands of
Indians were relocated after passage of the Indian Removal Act in 1830. Yet, as the
editors of this volume amply demonstrate, a significant Indian population remained
behind after those massive relocations.

The first anthology to focus on the literary work of Native Americans who trace
their ancestry to “people who stayed” in southeastern states after 1830, this volume
represents every state and every genre, including short stories, excerpts from novels,
poetry, essays, plays, and even Web postings. Although most works are contemporary,
the collection covers the entire post-Removal era. Some of the contributors are well
known, while others have only recently emerged as important literary voices.

Offers new insight into how Arapaho gender roles changed over time

Fowler Wives and Husbands

Wives and Husbands
Gender and Age in Southern Arapaho History
By Loretta Fowler
In Wives and Husbands, distinguished anthropologist Loretta Fowler deepens readers’
understanding of the gendered dimension of cultural encounters by exploring how the
Arapaho gender system affected and was affected by the encounter with Americans
as government officials, troops, missionaries, and settlers moved west into Arapaho
country. Fowler examines Arapaho history from 1805 to 1936 through the lens of five
cohorts, groups of women and men born during different year spans. Through the
life stories of individual Arapahos, she vividly illustrates the experiences and actions
of each cohort during a time when Americans tried to impose gender asymmetry and
to undermine the Arapahos’ hierarchical age relations.

giving shape to new leadership traditions and other adaptations.

A new key to understanding Maya hieroglyphic inscriptions

Robertson, Law, Haertel Colonial ch’olti’

Colonial Ch’olti’
The Seventeenth-Century Morán Manuscript
By John S. Robertson, Danny Law, and Robbie A. Haertel
At the time of the Spanish conquest, Ch’olti’ was spoken throughout much of the
southern Maya lowlands in what is present-day Petén and Chiquimula, and is closely
related to that spoken by the authors of the Classic Maya inscriptions. This book
presents for the first time a facsimile, transcription, English and Spanish translation,
and grammatical analysis of the Morán Manuscript, a Colonial-era document that
provides the sole attestation of Ch’olti’.

In addition to its value as a chronicle of the Colonial period, the Morán Manuscript
is crucial to our understanding of the Classic Maya, particularly their language,
captured in thousands of intricately carved and painted hieroglyphic inscriptions.
Robertson, Law, and Haertel, regarded as the ablest interpreters of Ch’olti’ now
working in Mayan linguistics, provide not only a painstaking presentation of language

preserves many of the poetic structures and metaphors, and a flowing translation in
both English and Spanish.

A Place of Refuge
Maynard Dixon’s Arizona
By Thomas Brent Smith
With an additional essay by Donald J. Hagerty
Western painter Maynard Dixon once pronounced “Arizona” “the magic name
of a land bright and mysterious, of sun and sand, of tragedy and stark endeavor.”
“So long had I dreamed of it,” he professed, “that when I came there it was not
strange to me. Its sun was my sun; its ground was my ground.” The California-born
Dixon (1875–1946) first traveled to Arizona in 1900 to absorb what he believed
was a vanishing West. Dixon found Arizona a visually inspiring and spiritual
place that shaped the course of his paintings and ultimately defined him. A Place
of Refuge: Maynard Dixon’s Arizona is the first exhibition to focus solely on the
renowned painter’s depictions of Arizona subjects. distributed for the Tucson Museum of Art

As early as 1903 Dixon referred to Arizona as home. Although he spent most of his
life in San Francisco, Dixon lamented to friends that he longed for Arizona and the

Edited and translated by James D. Sexton and Fredy Rodríguez-Mejía
Stories told in Spanish by Pedro Cholotío Temó and Alberto Barreno
In the delightful Mayan folktale “The Dog Who Spoke,” we learn what happens
when a dog’s master magically transforms into a dog-man who reasons like a man
but acts like a dog. This and the other Mayan folktales in this bilingual collection
brim with the enchanting creativity of rural Guatemala’s oral culture. In addition
to stories about ghosts and humans turning into animals, the volume also offers
humorous yarns. Hailing from the Lake Atitlán region in the Guatemalan highlands,
these tales reflect the dynamics of, and conflicts between, Guatemala’s Indian, Ladino,
and white cultures. The animals, humans, and supernatural forces that figure in these
stories represent Mayan cultural values, social mores, and history.

of Debussy and Ravel

Course in Musical Composition,

Volume I
By Vincent d’Indy
Translated, edited, and with an introduction by Gail Hilson Woldu
Comparative analysis by Merle Montgomery
Foreword by A. Robert Johnson
French composer and educator Vincent d’Indy differed from contemporaries Debussy
and Ravel in his conservative political and philosophical ideas and in his musical style.
This redaction and English translation of his Cours de composition musicale includes
the introductory lectures for the course he taught at the Schola Cantorum in Paris.

D’Indy’s ideas about composition, best articulated in the lectures presented here,
were unique in their combination of historical concepts and music theory. This is
the first publication of d’Indy’s work in English. In addition to a faithful translation,

concludes with the pioneering work of d’Indy scholar Merle Montgomery, who was the
first to translate the Cours into English. Her study offers a comparative framework for

This volume introduces students and scholars of music history and composition to an
influential teacher and prolific composer of the early twentieth century.

Gangs, Pseudo-militaries, and Other

New Dynamics in Uncomfortable Wars
By Max G. Manwaring
Foreword by Edwin G. Corr
Afterword by John T. Fishel
As the first decade of the twenty-first century has made brutally clear, the very
definitions of war and the enemy have changed almost beyond recognition. Threats
to security are now as likely to come from armed propagandists, popular militias,
or mercenary organizations as they are from conventional armies backed by nation-
states. In this timely book, national security expert Max G. Manwaring explores a
little-understood actor on the stage of irregular warfare—the gang.

Since the end of the Cold War, some one hundred insurgencies or irregular wars have

of V. I. Lenin. He then scrutinizes the Piqueteros in Argentina, gangs in Colombia,
private armies in Mexico, Hugo Chavez’s use of popular militias in Venezuela, and
the looming threat of Al Qaeda in Western Europe.

As conventional warfare is increasingly eclipsed by these irregular and “uncomfortable”

wars, Manwaring boldly diagnoses the problem and recommends solutions that
policymakers should heed.

A thorough history of the Cherokee legal system

Ballenger the development of law and legal institutions among the cherokees

The Development of Law and Legal

Institutions among the Cherokees
By Thomas Lee Ballenger
Foreword by Chad Smith
Before the arrival of Europeans to North America, Cherokee Indians practiced a
form of justice called blood law, or clan law. In this system, responsibility for the
punishment of a homicide fell to the clan of the victim. In the nineteenth century,
following the forced removal of tribal members to Indian Territory, the Cherokee
Nation developed a court system that is still in use today. In this thorough account,
Thomas Lee Ballenger traces the history of Cherokee justice from its traditional
beginnings to the development of its modern-day institutions.

The Development of Law and Legal Institutions among the Cherokees was submitted
distributed for Cherokee National Press
by Ballenger to the University of Oklahoma as his doctoral dissertation in 1937.
Although he later published many books, his dissertation was never published

interviewed many Cherokee people, including judges and law officers, who were

nineteenth century.

Ballenger’s work serves as significant documentation of a strong judicial system,

developed by an advanced people who, in the face of adversity, were able to survive,
adapt, prosper, and excel.

Edited by C. Daniel Crews and Richard W. Starbuck
In the mid-eighteenth century, members of the Moravian Church, which had its
origins in Central Europe, began conducting mission work among the Cherokee
people. Their archives, now housed in North Carolina, include valuable records of
their contact with the Cherokees. Drawing from these archives, these two volumes
offer a firsthand account of daily life among the Cherokees during the years 1752–
1805. Although written by missionaries and from their perspective, the documents
contained in these volumes—ranging from reports and minutes to diaries and
correspondence—provide great insight into Cherokee culture, society, customs, and
personalities during this period.

The first volume describes initial contact between the Moravians and Cherokees
during the French and Indian War and the Revolution, exploratory visits by Moravian
missionaries into the Cherokee Nation, and the founding of a mission—called
Springplace—in northern Georgia.

The second volume ends with the year 1805. As the Moravians occupy Springplace, distributed for cherokee national press

From New York socialite to Wyoming dude rancher

Dude Ranching in Yellowstone Country

Larry Larom and Valley Ranch, 1915–1969
By W. Hudson Kensel
After riding a stagecoach in Buffalo Bill’s Wild West show at Madison Square Garden
in 1910, Princeton student Iriving H. “Larry” Larom was determined to live a life
in the West. Later that year, Larom made the first of four summer trips to Wyoming,
where he was a guest at Jim McLaughlin’s Valley Ranch, nestled in a scenic valley
in the upper South Fork of the Shoshone River. Larom became so enamored of the
magnificent wilderness environment and the prospects of becoming a dude rancher
that he abandoned his life as a New York socialite. Partnering with Brooks Brothers
heir and Yale student Winthrop Brooks, he purchased Valley Ranch in 1915.

A welcome study of early dude ranch development, Dude Ranching in Yellowstone

Country preserves the history of an important Wyoming ranch and the man who
built it. W. Hudson Kensel recounts the life of Larom, whose East Coast connections

Besides making the ranch a success, Larom became a civic leader in Cody, Wyoming,

Firsthand accounts of the longest steamboat trip in

U.S. history to that time

Steamboats West
The 1859 American Fur Company Missouri River Expedition
By Lawrence H. Larsen and Barbara J. Cottrell
In 1859, the American Fur Company set out on what would then be the longest
steamboat trip in North American history—a headline-making, 6,200-mile trek
along the Missouri River from St. Louis to Fort Benton in present-day Montana, and
back again. Steamboats West is an adventure story that navigates the rocky rapids of
the upper Missouri to offer a fascinating account of travel to the raw frontier past the
pale of settlement. It was a venture that extended trade deep into the Northwest and
made an enormous stride in transportation.

Drawing on the journals of Dr. Elias Marsh and Charles Henry Weber and the official
accounts of Charles P. Chouteau and Capt. William Franklin Raynolds, who traveled
aboard the steamboats Spread Eagle and Chippewa, authors Lawrence H. Larsen

In the years after the Lewis and Clark expedition and before the Civil War, steamboats
were crucial in establishing commercial water routes in the inland West. Larsen and
Cottrell’s depiction of this one celebrated ride brings steamboat transport back to
life as modern, fast, and imposing—an apt symbol of the westward expansion that
spawned it.

McDermott red cloud’s war

The definitive history of the Bozeman Trail

Red Cloud’s War

The Bozeman Trail, 1866–1868
By John D. McDermott
On a cold December day in 1866, Captain William J. Fetterman disobeyed orders
and spurred his men across Lodge Trail Ridge in pursuit of a group of retreating
Lakota Sioux, Arapahos, and Cheyennes. He saw a perfect opportunity to punish
the tribes for harassing travelers on the Bozeman Trail and attacking wood trains
sent out from nearby Fort Phil Kearny. In a sudden turn of events, his command
was, within moments, annihilated. John D. McDermott’s masterful retelling of the
Fetterman Disaster is just one episode of Red Cloud’s War, the most comprehensive
history of the Bozeman Trail yet written.

In vivid detail, McDermott recounts how the discovery of gold in Montana in 1863

McDermott’s spellbinding narrative offers a cautionary tale of hubris and mis-

reputation for effectiveness it had gained during the Civil War dissipated in the
skirmishing in faraway Big Horn country.

In a thoughtful conclusion, McDermott reflects on the tribes’ victories and the

consequences of the Treaty of 1868. By successfully defending their hunting grounds,

Articles he has published during this time in The Journal of Chickasaw

Chickasaw Lives, Volume One: Explorations in Tribal History, followed in
2008 by Chickasaw Lives, Volume Two: Profiles and Oral Histories.

Sketches of Past and Present is the third volume in the Chickasaw Lives
series. In contrast to a conventional, chronological history, Green’s book
is a fascinating amalgam of Chickasaw epochs and characters, grouped

Proud to Be Chickasaw
By Mike and Martha Larsen
Among Oklahoma painters, Mike Larsen is a living legend. His work—from a
twenty-six-foot mural in the Oklahoma state capitol to a painting appearing on the
U.S. postage stamp honoring the Oklahoma centennial—is visible and prominent. In
2005, leaders of the Chickasaw Nation commissioned Larsen to create twenty-four
oil portraits of living Chickasaw elders. After those paintings were completed, the
Chickasaws commissioned a second series of twenty-four portraits—showcased in
this handsome, full-color volume.

In Proud to be Chickasaw, the Chickasaw master artist and his wife, Martha Larsen,
have again teamed up to offer insights into and insider perspectives on the lives
of two dozen tribal elders, including a storyteller, a longtime contributor to music
education in Oklahoma, and a World War II code talker. This book follows the
critically acclaimed They Know Who They Are, which exhibits Mike Larsen’s first

A uniquely detailed account of the removal of the Chickasaw

Paige, bumpers, littlefield chickasaw removal

Nation from their original homelands to Indian Territory

Chickasaw Removal
By Amanda L. Paige, Fuller L. Bumpers, and Daniel F. Littlefield, Jr.
In the early nineteenth century, the Chickasaw Indians were a beleaguered people.
Anglo-American settlers were streaming illegally into their homelands east of the
Mississippi River. Then, in 1830, the Indian Removal Act forced the Chickasaw
Nation, along with other eastern tribes, to remove to Indian Territory, in present-day
Oklahoma. This book provides the most detailed account to date of the Chickasaw
removal, from their harrowing journey west to their first difficult years in an
unfamiliar land.

The Chickasaw removal began in 1837, a few years after the departures of the
Choctaws and Creeks. In their gripping account of the Chickasaws’ forced trek,
authors Amanda L. Paige, Fuller L. Bumpers, and Daniel F. Littlefield, Jr., describe
the array of characters the Chickasaws came across, including missionaries, whiskey
peddlers, profiteering government agents, and contractors, some of whom purchased
and distributed rations they knew would go rancid before the removing parties passed

$20.00s Cloth 978-1-935684-00-8

Era, this book is a unique illumination of the “whole business” of removal, including

American Indian details of the places where the Chickasaws camped, bought supplies, sought medical
attention, and buried their dead. The story continues into Indian Territory, where
the Chickasaws faced a new set of obstacles but eventually persevered to become the
strong and successful nation they are today.

Amanda L. Paige, associated with the Sequoyah Research Center at the University
of Arkansas at Little Rock, is a historian, author, archivist, researcher, and museum
specialist. Fuller L. Bumpers is a writer and historian specializing in Native American
issues. Daniel F. Littlefield, Jr., is the director of the Sequoyah Research Center and the
