Located along rivers, at the edges of lakes, on mountain boulders, in rock shelters, on rock ledges where the continent meets the ocean, and tucked into parks and public places, American Indian rock art offers tantilizing glimpses of the signs and symbols of a Native American culture. Picture Rocks documents all known permanent petroglyph and pictograph sites from the Canadian provinces of Nova Scotia and New Brunswick, the six New England states, New York, and New Jersey. Some sites are subject to disputes over their origins—Indian or Portuguese? Some are ancient, and others, such as the work of the Mi’kmaq, were executed in the past 200 years. Many of these sites are little known; others, like those at Bellows Falls, Vermont, are sources of great local pride and appear on city walking tours. Interspersing his own interpretations with comments from scholars and Native American storytellers, Edward J. Lenik provides a definitive look at an extraordinary art form. Two hundred illustrations include historic sketches by early Euro-American colonists, nineteenth-century photographs, and recent photographs and drawings of the current conditions of many sites.

Crack Pipe As Pimp

A drastic rise in the number of regular crack cocaine users nationwide has lead to a disturbing concomitant phenomenon: the exchange of sexual services for crack or for money to buy the drug. Major American cities have seen increasing numbers of these men and women, commonly referred to within the drug subculture and in rap lyrics as "skeezers" or "crack whores," who dramatize the intersection of the major social issues of the 1990s: drugs, AIDS, gender roles, and the crisis of the inner city. Crack Pipe as Pimp is the result of an 18-month study funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse - the first of its kind - during which research teams in Miami, Chicago, Harlem, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Denver, Newark, and Philadelphia spent time in crack houses, apartments, and on the street conducting more than 300 detailed interviews with prostitutes, drug dealers, and homeless people about trading sex for crack. Vivid descriptions of different types of the exchange - including infrequent opportunistic sex; compulsive, crack-driven street prostitution; and desperate, often violent, crack house exchanges - graphically illustrate the frenzied daily lives of these crack users. The authors explore how the characteristics of the drug, the psychological and emotional histories of the individuals, and the social-cultural context in which the sex-for-crack phenomenon occurs have all contributed to its rise and growth. Contributing to the book's timeliness in the age of AIDS, Crack Pipe as Pimp explores the very serious threat of the heightened spread of the HIV virus - commonly considered most prevalent among intravenous heroin users - through these encounters. The study reveals that the sex-for-crack exchange is not merely a seamy part of life in the inner city but, rather, a mounting problem with implications for the entire nation. Crack Pipe as Pimp must be read not only by social anthropologists and researchers but by students and professionals in the fields of criminology, drug abuse treatment, health policy, psychology, public policy, sociology, and urban studies - indeed anyone who is concerned about the nation's future.

Black Elk of the Sioux has been recognized as one of the truly remarkable men of his time in the matter of religious belief and practice. Shortly before his death in August, 1950, when he was the "keeper of the sacred pipe," he said, "It is my prayer that, through our sacred pipe, and through this book in which I shall explain what our pipe really is, peace may come to those peoples who can understand, and understanding which must be of the heart and not of the head alone. Then they will realize that we Indians know the One true God, and that we pray to Him continually." Black Elk was the only qualified priest of the older Oglala Sioux still living when The Sacred Pipe was written. This is his book: he gave it orally to Joseph Epes Brown during the latter's eight month's residence on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota, where Black Elk lived. Beginning with the story of White Buffalo Cow Woman's first visit to the Sioux to give them the sacred pip~, Black Elk describes and discusses the details and meanings of the seven rites, which were disclosed, one by one, to the Sioux through visions. He takes the reader through the sun dance, the purification rite, the "keeping of the soul," and other rites, showing how the Sioux have come to terms with God and nature and their fellow men through a rare spirit of sacrifice and determination. The wakan Mysteries of the Siouan peoples have been a subject of interest and study by explorers and scholars from the period of earliest contact between whites and Indians in North America, but Black Elk's account is without doubt the most highly developed on this religion and cosmography. The Sacred Pipe, published as volume thirty-six in the Civilization of the American Indian Series, will be greeted enthusiastically by students of comparative religion, ethnologists, historians, philosophers, and everyone interested in American Indian life.
