The Allotment Plot reexamines the history of allotment on the Nez Perce Reservation from 1889 to 1892 to account for and emphasize the Nez Perce side of the story. By including Nez Perce responses to allotment, Nicole Tonkovich argues that the assimilationist aims of allotment ultimately failed due in large part to the agency of the Nez Perce people themselves throughout the allotment process. The Nez Perce were actively involved in negotiating the terms under which allotment would proceed and simultaneously engaged in ongoing efforts to protect their stories and other cultural properties from institutional appropriation by the allotment agent, Alice C. Fletcher, who was a respected anthropologist, and her photographer and assistant, E. Jane Gay. The Nez Perce engagement in this process laid a foundation for the long-term survival of the tribe and its culture. Making use of previously unknown archival sources, Fletcher’s letters, Gay’s photographs and journalistic accounts, oral tribal histories, and analyses of performances such as parades and verbal negotiations, Tonkovich assembles a masterful portrait of Nez Perce efforts to control their own future and provides a vital counternarrative of the allotment period, which is often portrayed as disastrous to Native polities.

Tucked away in the corner of a busy allotment, stands Mr. Brownlow's shed. A more sorrowful sight would be hard to find, but it serves very well for storing all the tools needed to keep the allotment tidy and free of weeds. After all, isn't a shed just a shed? At the time of day when the allotment keeper becomes but a shadow in the distance, and the light grows dim, a wonderful thing happens. Hose, Broom, Rake and Spade, along with the rest of the tools in the shed, suddenly spring to life in this delightful children's adventure. Sadly, one day their home collapses about them. Leave it to Watering Can and General Twine to lead all their friends on a journey to find a new home. Along the way, they meet many new friends and share adventures, sometimes with sadness, but mostly with happiness and laughter. Author Diane Taylor began creating stories when her children were young. She grew up in an era when most people had allotments and gardens. Watching her grandchildren working in the garden, gave her the inspiration for The Allotment Shed. She lives in Stalham, on the rugged North Norfolk coastline of England.

Allotment gardens (or community gardens as they are called here) are taken for granted as party of the everyday scene on the fringe of very city, town and village. This unique and fascinating book explores the culture and landscape of the allotment and the part it has played in Britain for 150 years. The old mental image of the cloth-clapped plot-holder, sitting in his shed on a Sunday morning and pedaling home with a bunch of carrots over his handlebars is no longer valid. Recent research is showing that more and more plot-holders are young, or women. However, the allotment is under threat and long-held sites have been taken over. A new introduction describes these changes. Rich in local history and anecdote, The Allotment explores regional variations like pigeon-fancying and leek competitions, as well as alternative uses and international comparisons. Are allotments simply a recreation like tennis or golf, or the last precious vestige of everyone's natural right to a patch of land to produce food?

Crooked Paths To Allotment

Standard narratives of Native American history view the nineteenth century in terms of steadily declining Indigenous sovereignty, from removal of southeastern tribes to the 1887 General Allotment Act. In Crooked Paths to Allotment, C. Joseph Genetin-Pilawa complicates these narratives, focusing on political moments when viable alternatives to federal assimilation policies arose. In these moments, Native American reformers and their white allies challenged coercive practices and offered visions for policies that might have allowed Indigenous nations to adapt at their own pace and on their own terms. Examining the contests over Indian policy from Reconstruction through the Gilded Age, Genetin-Pilawa reveals the contingent state of American settler colonialism. Genetin-Pilawa focuses on reformers and activists, including Tonawanda Seneca Ely S. Parker and Council Fire editor Thomas A. Bland, whose contributions to Indian policy debates have heretofore been underappreciated. He reveals how these men and their allies opposed such policies as forced land allotment, the elimination of traditional cultural practices, mandatory boarding school education for Indian youth, and compulsory participation in the market economy. Although the mainstream supporters of assimilation successfully repressed these efforts, the ideas and policy frameworks they espoused established a tradition of dissent against disruptive colonial governance.
