FULL-COURT QUEST
The Girls from Fort Shaw Indian School
Basketball Champions of the World
By	Linda	Peavy	and	Ursula	Smith
How ten girls shattered prevailing perceptions toward indian peoples and women
athletes, one game at a time
Most fans of women’s basketball would be startled to learn that girls’ teams were
making their mark more than a century ago—and that none was more prominent
than a team from an isolated Indian boarding school in Montana. Playing like
“lambent flames” across the polished floors of dance halls, armories, and gym-
nasiums, the girls from Fort Shaw stormed the state to emerge as Montana’s first
basketball champions. Taking their game to the 1904 St. Louis World’s Fair, these
young women introduced an international audience to the fledgling game and
returned home with a trophy declaring them champions.
World champions. And yet their triumphs were forgotten—until Linda Peavy and
Ursula Smith chanced upon a team photo and embarked on a ten-year journey
of discovery. Their in-depth research and extensive collaboration with the team-
mates’ descendents and tribal kin have resulted in a narrative as entertaining as it
is authentic.
Full-Court Quest offers a rare glimpse into American Indian life and into the
world of women’s basketball before “girls’ rules” temporarily shackled the
sport. For anyone captivated by Sea Biscuit, A League of Their Own, and other
accounts of unlikely champions, this book rates as nothing but net.
Linda Peavy and Ursula Smith began their collaborative work in women’s his-
tory and biography in Bozeman, Montana. In the intervening years they have
coauthored ten books, including Women in Waiting in the Westward Movement,
                                                                                                  additional books by linda peavy and ursula smith

                                                           From the tectonic formation of Oklahoma’s varied landscape to the recovery and

                                                           The result is a rousing, often surprising, and ever-fascinating story.
                                                           Oklahoma history is an intricate tapestry of themes, stories, and perspectives,

BATTLESHIP OklAhOmA BB-37
By Jeff Phister, with Thomas Hone and Paul Goodyear
Returning to Pearl Harbor to revisit the fate of a ship and its crew
On a quiet Sunday morning in 1941, a ship designed to keep the peace was
suddenly attacked. This book tells the remarkable story of a battleship, its brave
crew, and how their lives were intertwined.
Jeff Phister and his coauthors have written the comprehensive history of the USS
Oklahoma from its christening in 1914 to its final loss in 1947. Phister tells how
the Oklahoma served in World War I, participated in the Great Cruise of 1925,
and evacuated refugees from Spain in 1936. But the most memorable event of the
ship’s history occurred on December 7, 1941.
Phister weaves the personal narratives of surviving crewmen with the necessary
technical information to recreate the attack and demonstrate the full scope of its
devastation. Captured Japanese photographs and dozens of historic U.S. Navy
photographs deepen our understanding of this monumental event.
Raised after the attack, the Oklahoma sank again while being towed stateside
and now rests on the ocean floor, 540 miles northeast of Oahu. Battleship
Oklahoma: BB-37 tells the complete story of a proud ship and her fall through
the eyes of those who survived her loss.
Jeff Phister is a freelance biographer in Phoenix, Arizona, and an active member
of the USS Oklahoma Family, Inc., a nonprofit corporation dedicated to preserving
the memory of the USS Oklahoma. Thomas Hone has spent his career teaching,
working in defense organization and management, and is the author of numerous
books on naval subjects, including Battle Line: The United States Navy, 1919–
1939. Paul Goodyear, a USS Oklahoma survivor, lives in Casa Grande, Arizona
and is involved in an effort to identify the remains of the USS Oklahoma’s 380

MEANS OF TRANSIT
A Slightly Embellished Memoir
By	Teresa	Miller
A celebrated writer and celebrator of writers tells what has shaped her life and career
“Like all great memoirs, Teresa Miller’s Means of Transit takes us on a deep jour-
ney during the writer’s emotional roller coaster ride to a rich emotional life. The
dilemma of family both tortures and exalts her—the way it does all of us.”
—Pat Conroy, author of The Prince of Tides and The Great Santini
For the longest time, Teresa Miller wanted to get as far from Oklahoma as possible—to
escape from her distant father and abusive stepmother, from the ache of her mother’s
death, and from the small-town insularity of Tahlequah. She longed for New York and
Hollywood, for all the glamorous settings that transcended grief—at least on television.
Miller never made it out of Oklahoma permanently, though she came to treasure
the region that kept her heart anchored even as her spirit cast far and wide. In
Means of Transit—A Slightly Embellished Memoir, Miller writes of journeys that
turned into life-altering experiences as she learned to “story” her way beyond the
impasses. Still other trips, begun with great promise, found her wandering through
confusing back roads, relying on more seasoned storytellers for direction. Eventu-
ally she established a literary center simply by reaching out to such authors as Jim
Lehrer, Maya Angelou, and Isabel Allende, fellow travelers who taught her as much
about life as about writing.
The author takes readers from her early childhood, to a short stint in a New York
acting school, to the writing of her first novel, and the painful decades of writer’s
block that followed its publication. We also learn of the author’s terrifying encounter
with a stalker, a dark sort of Everyman who personified her late-night suspicions
about even the people closest to her.
Told with humor, candor, and the same haunting lyricism that distinguished her                    stories and storytellers titles
early work, Miller’s story is about learning the ultimate life lesson—that when we do             Mack to the Rescue

OKLAHOMA ROUGH RIDER
Billy McGinty’s Own Story
Edited	with	Commentary	and	Notes	by	
Jim	Fulbright	and	Albert	Stehno
Recounting a colorful career, from San Juan Hill to points West
When Americans answered the call-to-arms after the sinking of the USS Maine
in 1898, a wiry little Oklahoman was in the front ranks. Veteran cowboy Billy
McGinty put his horseman’s skills to work as one of Teddy Roosevelt’s Rough
Riders and participated in the battle of Las Guasimas, the attack on San Juan
Heights, and the siege of Santiago.
Oklahoma Rough Rider recounts McGinty’s exploits on the battlefield and later
on the stage. It contains his firsthand account of how he began cowboying at
fourteen and went on to become a world champion bronco buster. After the
Spanish-American War, he performed in Buffalo Bill’s Wild West show and won
the Cowboy Hall of Fame’s Great Westerner award. Yet his colorful career has
remained largely untold—until now.
Editors Jim Fulbright and Albert Stehno provide historical context for McGinty’s
story—especially his common-soldier’s view of the war with Spain as the Rough
Riders voyaged from Port Tampa to Cuba and into the heart of battle. When he
died at age ninety, McGinty had accomplished many things, but none made him
as proud as having served with Roosevelt. McGinty’s story, with more than two
dozen photographs, takes readers on the charge up San Juan Hill—and on to
points West—to attest to his wide-ranging adventures.

PLACING MEMORy
A Photographic Exploration of
Japanese American Internment
Photographs	by	Todd	Stewart
Essays	by	Natasha	Egan	and	Karen	J.	Leong
Afterword	by	John	Tateishi
A photographic perspective on the Japanese American
internment camps
When the U.S. government incarcerated 120,000 Japanese Ameri-
cans as “domestic enemy aliens” during World War II, most
other Americans succumbed to their fears and endorsed the con-
finement of their fellow citizens. Ten “relocation centers” were
scattered across the West. Today, in the crumbling foundations,
overgrown yards, and material artifacts of these former intern-
ment camps, we can still sense the injustices suffered there.
Placing Memory is a powerful visual record of the internment. Featuring
Todd Stewart’s stunning color photographs of the sites as they appear today, the
book provides a rigorous visual survey of the physical features of the camps—
roads, architectural remains, and monuments—along with maps and statistical
information.
                                                                                                     of related interest

TExAS DEVILS
Rangers and Regulars on
the Lower Rio Grande, 1846–1861
By	Michael	L.	Collins
Reconsidering the myth of “good guys in white hats”
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 demonstrates that, rather than bringing peace to the region,
the Texas Rangers contributed to the violence and were often brutal in their
injustices against Spanish-speaking inhabitants, who dubbed them los diablos
Tejanos—the Texas devils. Collins goes beyond other, more laudatory Ranger
histories to focus on the origins of the legend, casting Ranger immortals such as
John Coffee “Jack” Hays, Ben McCulloch, and John S. “Rip” Ford in a new and
not always flattering light.
In revealing a barbaric code of conduct on the Rio Grande frontier, Collins shows
that much of the Ranger Myth doesn’t hold up to close historical scrutiny.
Texas Devils offers exciting true stories of the Rangers for anyone captivated by
their legend, even as it provides a corrective to that legend.

                                                             contribute to suburban sprawl in the United States. Focusing on the Phoenix area,
                                                             she examines sustainable development in Cave Creek, various master-planned
                                                             suburbs, and the Salt Creek Pima-Maricopa Indian Reservation to explore
                                                             suburbanization and ecological destruction. She also explains why sprawl continues
                                                             despite the heavy toll it takes on the environment.
                                                             Schipper gives voice to community members who have experienced the pressures
                                                             of sprawl and questioned fundamental assumptions that sustain it. She presents
                                                             the perspectives of the many players in the sprawl debate—from developers and
                                                             politicians to environmentalists and property-rights advocates—not merely to docu-

                                                             Disappearing Desert speaks to land-use dilemmas nationwide and shows that
                                                             curtailing suburban development requires both policy shifts and new ways of relat-

                                                             development, this book uncovers the forces that drive sprawl and searches for
                                                             solutions to its seeming inevitability.

MEN WITHOUT BLISS
By	Rigoberto	González
Short stories that assess the silent suffering of men
In cities and fields, Mexican American men are leading lives of quiet desperation.
In this collection of thirteen startling stories, Rigoberto González weaves complex
portraits of Latinos leading ordinary, practically invisible lives while navigating
the dark waters of suppressed emotion—true-to-life characters who face emotional
hurt, socioeconomic injustice, indignities in the workplace, or sexual repression.
But because their culture expects men to symbolize power and control, they dare
not risk succumbing to displays of weakness.
González shines an empathetic light into the shadows of Mexican culture to por-
tray characters who suffer in silence—men both straight and gay who must come
to terms with their grief, loneliness, and pain. By exploring the private moments
of men trapped inside unforgiving stereotypes, he critiques long-held assumptions
of Latino behavior. He shows us individuals who must break out of various clos-
ets to become fully realized adults, and makes us feel the emotional pain of men
in a culture that recognizes only the pain and hardship of women.
Men without Bliss conveys the silent suffering of all men, not just Latinos. It will
open readers’ eyes to unexpected facets of Latino culture, and perhaps of their
own lives.

A PLACE OF REFUGE
Maynard Dixon’s Arizona
By	Thomas	Brent	Smith	with	an	additional	essay		
by	Donald	J.	Hagerty
Depictions of Arizona by a preeminent artist of the American West
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.
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 solitude of the desert, and he frequently traversed the
land’s varied expanses. In 1939 he made Tucson his winter home and spent
his remaining years painting his beloved desert landscape. In the confluence
of Arizona’s natural and cultural landscapes, Dixon would become one of the
West’s most distinctive painters, creating a body of work that established his place
among the vanguard of artists who portrayed western subjects.
Thomas Brent Smith explores Dixon’s remarkable departure from traditional
depictions of human conflict in the “Old West” rendered by such predecessors
as Frederic Remington, Charles M. Russell, and Charles Schreyvogel. Smith’s
essay describes this shift in artistic ideology and analyzes the tranquil images that
emerged on Dixon’s canvases. Donald J. Hagerty’s biographical essay highlights
Dixon’s travels and his affinity for the people and landscape of Arizona.
Thomas Brent Smith is Curator of Art of the American West at the Tucson
Museum of Art. Donald J. Hagerty, an independent scholar, is author of Desert
Dreams: The Art and Life of Maynard Dixon.

WITH ZEAL AND WITH BAyONETS ONLy
The British Army on Campaign in
North America, 1775–1783
By	Matthew	H.	Spring
A thorough reinterpretation of British performance during
the American Revolution
The image is indelible: densely packed lines of slow-moving Redcoats picked off
by American sharpshooters. Now Matthew Spring reveals how British infantry in
the American Revolutionary War really fought.
This groundbreaking book offers a new analysis of the British Army during the
“American rebellion” at both operational and tactical levels. Presenting fresh
insights into the speed of British tactical movements, Spring discloses how the
system for training the army prior to 1775 was overhauled and adapted to the
peculiar conditions confronting it in North America.
First scrutinizing such operational problems as logistics, manpower shortages,
and poor intelligence, Spring then focuses on battlefield tactics to examine how
troops marched to the battlefield, deployed, advanced, and fought. In particular,
he documents the use of turning movements, the loosening of formations, and
a reliance on bayonet-oriented shock tactics. Highlighting the army’s ability to
tailor its tactical methods to local conditions, Spring demonstrates both the pro-
fessional competence of officers and their confidence in the men under them to
perform tactics far removed from the drill manuals. Although the British were
constrained in many ways, they moved rapidly to correct tactical inadequacies.
Written with flair and a wealth of details that will engage scholars and history
enthusiasts alike, With Zeal and with Bayonets Only offers a thorough reinter-
pretation of how the British Army’s North American campaign progressed and
                                                                                                       also in the campaigns and

                                                               By	James	E.	Klein
                                                               Social classes collide over morality and social propriety in a brand-new state
                                                               Well before the Volstead (or National Prohibition) Act of 1919, Oklahoma was
                                                               dry. Oklahomans banned liquor at their state’s inception in 1907 and maintained
                                                               the ban even after the repeal of national prohibition. In this book, James E. Klein
                                                               examines the social and cultural conflicts that led Oklahomans to outlaw liquor
                                                               and discusses the economic and political consequences of the ban.
                                                               Grappling with Demon Rum identifies who favored and who opposed prohibition,
                                                               showing that its proponents were largely middle-class citizens who disdained
                                                               public drinking establishments and who sought respectability for a young state
                                                               still considered a frontier society. Klein tells how the Oklahoma Anti-Saloon
                                                               League orchestrated a dry campaign to raise moral standards, reduce crime, and

                                                               Going beyond the usual evangelical-versus-ritualist, rural-versus-urban, and
                                                               ethnocultural oppositions used by other historians to explain prohibition, Klein
                                                               shows that Oklahoma’s immigrant and Catholic populations were too small to

                                                               supported bootleggers. He points instead to the large number of working-class
                                                               Oklahomans who patronized saloons, whether legal or not, and focuses on class

“THEy ARE ALL RED OUT HERE”
The Socialist Party in the Pacific Northwest, 1895–1925
By	Jeffrey	A.	Johnson
The most successful socialists America has ever seen
One of early-twentieth-century America’s most fertile grounds for political radi-
calism, the Pacific Northwest produced some of the most dedicated and success-
ful socialists the country has ever seen. As a radicalized labor force emerged in
mining, logging, and other extractive industries, socialists employed intensive
organizational and logistical skills to become an almost permanent third party
that won elections and shook the confidence of establishment rivals. At the height
of Socialist Party influence just before World War I, a Montana member declared,
“They are all red out here.”
In this first book to fully examine the development of the American Socialist
Party in the Northwest, Jeffrey A. Johnson draws a sharp picture of one of the
most vigorous left-wing organizations of this era. Relying on party newspapers,
pamphlets, and correspondence, he allows socialists to reveal their own strategies
as they pursued their agendas in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Montana. And
he explores how the party gained sizable support in Butte, Spokane, and other
cities seldom associated today with left-wing radicalism.
“They Are All Red Out Here” employs recent approaches to labor history by
restoring rank-and-file workers and party organizers as active participants in
shaping local history. The book marks a major contribution to the ongoing debate
over why socialism never grew deep roots in American soil and no longer thrives
here. It is a work of political and labor history that uncovers alternative social
and political visions in the American West.

                                                           One of the most distinctive and prolific writers of the Harlem Renaissance, Anita
                                                           Scott Coleman (1890–1960) found popular and critical success in the flourishing
                                                           African American press of the early twentieth century. Yet unlike many of her
                                                           New York–based contemporaries, Coleman lived her life in the American West,
                                                           first in New Mexico and later in California. Her work thus offers a rare view of
                                                           African American life in that region.
                                                           Broader in scope than any previous anthology of Coleman’s writings, this volume
                                                           collects the author’s finest stories, essays, and poems, including many not pub-

                                                           ’30s, and ’40’s. Editors Cynthia Davis and Verner D. Mitchell introduce these
                                                           writings with an in-depth biographical essay that places Coleman in the context
                                                           of the Harlem Renaissance movement.
                                                           The volume also features vintage family photographs, a detailed chronology, and
                                                           a genealogical tree covering five generations of the Coleman family. Based on
                                                           extensive research and written with the full cooperation of the Coleman family,

RACE AND THE WAR ON POVERTy
From Watts to East L.A.
By	Robert	Bauman
The dynamics of race in Los Angeles viewed through the prism of the War on Poverty
President Lyndon B. Johnson’s War on Poverty did more than offer aid to needy
Americans; in some cities, it also sparked both racial conflict and cooperation.
Race and the War on Poverty examines the African American and Mexican
American community organizations in Los Angeles that emerged to implement
War on Poverty programs. It explores how organizers applied democratic vision
and political savvy to community action, and how the ongoing African American,
Chicano, and feminist movements in turn shaped the contours of the War on
Poverty’s goals, programs, and cultural identity.
Robert Bauman describes how the Watts riots of 1965 accelerated the creation of
a black community-controlled agency, the Watts Labor Community Action Com-
mittee. The example of the WLCAC, combined with a burgeoning Chicano move-
ment, inspired Mexican Americans to create The East Los Angeles Community
Union (TELACU) and the Chicana Service Action Center. Bauman explores the
connections that wove together the War on Poverty, the Watts revolt, and local
movements in ways that empowered the participants economically, culturally, and
politically. Although heated battles over race and other cultural issues sometimes
derailed the programs, these organizations produced lasting positive effects for
the communities they touched.
Despite Nixon-era budget cuts and the nation’s turn toward conservatism, the
War on Poverty continues to be fought today as these agencies embrace the
changing politics, economics, and demographics of Los Angeles. Race and the
War on Poverty shows how the struggle to end poverty evolved in ways that
would have surprised its planners, supporters, and detractors—and that what
began as a grand vision at the national level continues to thrive on the streets of
the community.

                                                              How an Hispano community maintained its identity over four centuries
                                                              Located in Albuquerque’s south valley, Atrisco is a vibrant community that predates
                                                              the city, harking back to a land grant awarded in 1692. Joseph P. Sánchez explores
                                                              the evolution of this parcel over the four centuries since the first Spanish settlers
                                                              arrived. He tracks its transformation from an individual to a community grant,
                                                              peeling away the layers of historical events that have made Atrisco the last piece of
                                                              undeveloped real estate in a growing metropolitan area.
                                                              Sánchez examines the creation of Atrisco as a frontier community during the
                                                              Spanish and Mexican periods and shows how it maintained its identity and land
                                                              ownership into the American era. He describes the historical processes of colo-
                                                              nization, land tenures and transfers, and social and economic activity. He also
                                                              assesses the transfer of the land grant to a private corporation and its subsequent
                                                              fate, and considers Atrisco’s role in the future of Albuquerque.
                                                              Today more than 30,000 New Mexicans are descended from the early settlers of
                                                              Atrisco; and because few places in the United States have retained their Spanish and
                                                              Mexican influences as have the New Mexican land grants, the history of Atrisco
                                                              offers a unique perspective. Sánchez’s study preserves Atrisco’s origins as part of
                                                              that area’s Hispano heritage, depicting people who learned to defend their culture
                                                              against outside challenges and embedding local history in a larger regional saga.

EARTHLINGS
The Paintings of Tom Palmore
By	Susan	Hallsten	McGarry
Foreword	by	Adam	Harris
It feels like you could touch that cougar’s nose. Is that a Miro painting
in the background? I’ll bet the fox picked the chicken wallpaper. Wow,
that’s one bodacious bird!
Such are the observations that filter through the galleries during Tom
Palmore’s exhibitions in which animals steal the show.
Born in Ada and living in Oklahoma, Palmore emerged from the 1970s
Photorealist movement as a maverick. His career includes more than a
decade on the East Coast, where he refined his skills at the Pennsylvania
Academy of Fine Arts and exhibited in New York’s prominent contem-
porary galleries. Palmore used his technical virtuosity to explore his pas-
sion for the animal kingdom. Then as today, his monumental paintings
received critical acclaim, and his incongruous juxtapositions of realistic
primates in silk-and-velvet interiors earned him the nickname Gorilla Man.
Palmore’s fidelity to an animal’s visage is intended to make it proud.
However, the contexts in which he places them are pure Palmore, infused
with his penchant for wit and the unexpected. His portrait of Oscar, the famed
rodeo bull, is set against Palmore-designed wallpaper of cowboys catapulted into
the air. A rooster surveys its Grant Wood countryside, and an imposing lion is
oblivious to the diminutive monarch butterfly that shares its epithet. In all cases,
Palmore’s paintings loom large not only in scale but also in raised consciousness
of the “earthlings with whom we share this planet,” as he says.
In this first book to chronicle Palmore’s four-decade career, Susan Hallsten
McGarry explores the stories behind the man, his philosophy and techniques, and
the themes that weave throughout his remarkable oeuvre. McGarry, who was
editor in chief of Southwest Art magazine from 1979 to 1997, has authored
numerous catalogs and monographs on American artists. Adam Harris, Curator
of Art at the National Museum of Wildlife Art, Jackson, Wyoming, contributes
the foreword.

                                                            between people and place to show how Aravaipa is intimately tied to Apache identity.

                                                            Ian Record employs a unique approach that reflects how the Apaches conceptual-

INKPADUTA
Dakota Leader
By	Paul	N.	Beck
Reassesses a Sioux warrior long presumed a villain
Leader of the Santee Sioux, Inkpaduta (1815–79) participated in some of the
most decisive battles of the northern Great Plains, including Custer’s defeat at the
Little Bighorn. But the attack in 1857 on forty white settlers known as the Spirit
Lake Massacre gave Inkpaduta the reputation of being the most brutal of all the
Sioux leaders.
Paul N. Beck now challenges a century and a half of bias to reassess the life
and legacy of this important Dakota leader. In the most complete biography of
Inkpaduta ever written, Beck draws on Indian agents’ correspondence, journals,
and other sources to paint a broader picture of the whole person, showing him
to have been not only a courageous warrior but also a dedicated family man and
tribal leader who got along reasonably well with whites for most of his life.
Beck sheds new light on many poorly understood aspects of Inkpaduta’s life,
including his journeys in the American West after the Spirit Lake Massacre. Beck
reexamines Euro-American attitudes toward Indians and the stereotypes that
shaped nineteenth-century writing, showing how they persisted in portrayals of
Inkpaduta well into the twentieth century, even after more generous appreciations
of American Indian cultures had become commonplace.
Long considered a villain whose passion was murdering white settlers, Inkpaduta
is here restored to more human dimensions. Inkpaduta: Dakota Leader shatters
the myths that surrounded his life for too long and provides the most extensive
reassessment of this leader’s life to date.

PLAINS APACHE ETHNOBOTANy
By	Julia	A.	Jordan
Foreword	by	Paul	E.	Minnis	and	Wayne	J.	Elisens
One tribe’s traditional knowledge of plants, presented for the first time
Residents of the Great Plains since the early 1500s, the Apache people were well
acquainted with the native flora of the region. In Plains Apache Ethnobotany, Julia
A. Jordan documents more than 110 plant species valued by the Plains Apache and
preserves a wealth of detail concerning traditional Apache collection, preparation,
and use of these plant species for food, medicine, ritual, and material culture.
The traditional Apache economy centered on hunting, gathering, and trading
with other tribes. Throughout their long history the Apache lived in or traveled
to many different parts of the plains, gaining an intimate knowledge of a wide
variety of plant resources. Part of this traditional knowledge, especially that per-
taining to plants of Oklahoma, has been captured here by Jordan’s fieldwork,
conducted with elders of the Apache Tribe of Oklahoma in the mid-1960s, a time
when much traditional knowledge was being lost.
Plains Apache Ethnobotany is the most comprehensive ethnobotanical study of a
southern plains tribe. Handsomely illustrated, this book is a valuable resource for
ethnobotanists, anthropologists, historians, and anyone interested in American
Indian use of native plants.
Julia A. Jordan holds a master’s degree in anthropology from the University of
Oklahoma. As a research anthropologist, she conducted extensive fieldwork
among Indians of western Oklahoma as a part of the Doris Duke Indian Oral
History Project at the University of Oklahoma. Later at the Sam Noble Oklahoma
Museum of Natural History she served as consultant and co–principal investigator
for several anthropological projects. Now retired, she lives in Norman, Oklahoma.

COMING DOWN FROM ABOVE
Prophecy, Resistance, and Renewal in
Native American Religions
By	Lee	Irwin
A comprehensive sourcebook on American Indian prophecy and prophets
For longer than five centuries, Native Americans have struggled to adapt to
colonialism, missionization, and government control policies. This first compre-
hensive survey of prophetic movements in Native North America tells how
religious leaders blended indigenous beliefs with Christianity’s prophetic traditions
to respond to those challenges.
Lee Irwin gathers a scattered literature to provide a single-volume overview that
depicts American Indians’ creative synthesis of their own religious beliefs and
practices with a variety of Christian theological ideas and moral teachings. He
traces continuities in the prophetic tradition from eighteenth-century Delaware
prophets to Western dream dance visionaries, showing that Native American
prophecy was not merely borrowed from Christianity but emerged from an
interweaving of Christian and ancient North American teachings integral to
Native religions.
From the highly assimilated ideas of the Puget Sound Shakers to such resistance
movements as that of the Shawnee Prophet, Irwin tells how the integration of
non-Native beliefs with prophetic teachings gave rise to diverse ethnotheologies
with unique features. He surveys the beliefs and practices of the nation to which
each prophet belonged, then describes his or her life and teachings, the codification
of those teachings, and the impact they had on both the community and the history
of Native religions. Key hard-to-find primary texts are included in an appendix.
An introduction to an important strand within the rich tapestry of Native religions,

FIRE LIGHT
The Life of Angel De Cora, Winnebago Artist
By	Linda	M.	Waggoner
The first biography of this important American Indian artist
Artist, teacher, and Red Progressive, Angel De Cora (1869–1919) painted Fire Light
to capture warm memories of her Nebraska Winnebago childhood. In this biogra-
phy, Linda M. Waggoner draws on that glowing image to illuminate De Cora’s life
and artistry, which until now have been largely overlooked by scholars.
One of the first American Indian artists to be accepted within the mainstream art
world, De Cora left her childhood home on the Winnebago reservation to find
success in the urban Northeast at the turn of the twentieth century. Despite scant
documentary sources that elucidate De Cora’s private life, Waggoner has rendered
a complete picture of the woman known in her time as the first “real Indian artist.”
She depicts De Cora as a multifaceted individual who as a young girl took pride in
her traditions, forged a bond with the land that would sustain her over great
distances, and learned the role of cultural broker from her mother’s Métis family.
After studying with famed illustrator Howard Pyle at his first Brandywine
summer school, De Cora eventually succeeded in establishing the first “Native
Indian” art department at Carlisle Indian School. A founding member of the
Society of American Indians, she made a significant impact on the American Arts
and Crafts movement by promoting indigenous arts throughout her career.
Waggoner brings her broad knowledge of Winnebago culture and history to this
gracefully written book, which features more than forty illustrations. Fire Light
shows us both a consummate artist and a fully realized woman, who learned how
to traverse the borders of Red identity in a white man’s world.
Linda M. Waggoner, an independent scholar residing in Healdsburg, California, is
                                                                                                  of related interest

THE ILIAD
Translated	by	Herbert	Jordan
Introduction	by	E.	Christian	Kopff
An accessible Iliad for twenty-first-century readers
“A splendid achievement”—Henry Taylor, Pulitzer Prize–winning poet
“A remarkably fresh and clear translation. As deceptively simple as an Attic
frieze, it is at once true to its ancient original and inviting to readers today.”
—Luc Sante, translator of Félix Fénéon’s Novels in Three Lines
A classic of Western literature for three millennia, Homer’s Iliad captivates mod-
ern readers—as it did ancient listeners—with its tale of gods and warriors at the
siege of Troy. Now Herbert Jordan’s line-for-line translation brilliantly renders
the original Greek into English blank verse—the poetic form most closely resem-
bling our spoken language.
Raising the bar set by Richmond Lattimore in 1951, Jordan employs a pleasing
five-beat meter and avoids unnecessary filler. Whereas other verse renditions are
longer than the original, owing to the translators’ indulgence in personal poetics,
Jordan avoids “line inflation.” The result, an economical translation, captures the
force and vigor of the original poem.
E. Christian Kopff’s introduction to this volume sets the stage and credits Jordan
with conveying the action and movement of the Iliad in “contemporary language
and a supple verse.” This new Iliad offers twenty-first-century readers the thrill of a
timeless epic and affords instructors a much-needed alternative for literature surveys.
