This latest volume in the Gila River Indian Community Anthropological Research Papers series by John P. Wilson provides a narrative history of the Akimel O'Odham and Pee Posh peoples who lived along the middle Gila River in south central Arizona. The manuscript covers the period between AD 1694 and 1945 for which written documentation exists, and is largely based on descriptions that were recorded by explorers, missionaries, soldiers, settlers, and others who traveled through the area. The document is an essential reference for the Historic period in southern Arizona, and considerable information is compiled in this book that has previously been unavailable elsewhere.

This is the third volume in the Gila River Indian Communityas Anthropological Research Papers series. As in the second volume, this volume presents new observations on the archaeology of the middle Gila River valley based on a full-coverage survey of 146,000 acres for the Pima-Maricopa Irrigation Project, sponsored by the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, Department of the Interior, and administered by the Tribe under the Tribal Self-Governance Act of 1994. This study identifies a new approach for studying sites that contain protohistoric assemblages (AD 1450 to 1700). E. Christian Wells reviews the evidence for protohistoric settlement in central Arizona, introduces quantitative measures to identify pottery assemblages, and suggests potential avenues for future research.

In Forced to Abandon Our Fields, DeJong provides the historical context for these interviews; transcripts of the interviews provide first-hand descriptions of both the once-successful Pima agricultural economy and its decline by the early twentieth century.

A Pima Past

In simple, unaffected prose, Mrs. Shaw constructs a moving saga of Native Americans caught between their tribal past and a Europeanized present. . . . Some of the most interesting passages deal with the wrenching realities of Indian life on the reservation in the years around the turn of the century, when the Indian male as a warrior found himself bereft of his very reason for being and forced to endeavor to become a farmer. ÑJournal of Arizona History "A most interesting book. . . . Her account of how the Pima Indians lived, their family structure, how they reared their children, courtship and marriage, how they treated their elders, their religious practices before the coming of a Christian missionary in 1870, and their accommodation with death are related in language that can be easily understood by the layman and, yet, provide information which can be used by the sociologist and anthropologist." ÑJournal of the West "The current trend in books written by American Indians is to idealize the Indian past while condemning white culture. This volume is a notable exception because its author is old enough to remember the past and because she has been successful in adapting those elements of white culture which she found useful without sacrificing this essential heritage. . . . The style is simple and straightforward, that of a good storyteller which reaches all adult levels." ÑChoice "Simple and charming reminiscences of the old Pima ways at the turn of the century when they still prevailed and of the changes which recent decades have brought about in the lives of the desert people." ÑBooks of the Southwest "Throughout her account a special kind of humor, sensitivity and pride is revealed when discussing her peoples and her own personal experiences." ÑThe Masterkey
