A study of the styles of decoration found on the early southwestern pottery known as White Mountain Redware. The White Mountain Redware tradition, an arbitrary division of the Cibola painted pottery tradition, is composed of those vessels which have a red slip and painted decoration in either black or black and white, which when grouped into pottery types have a geographic locus within or immediately adjacent to the Cibola area, and which share a number of other attributes indicative of close historical relationships.

Why do the fingerprints of a recent murder victim in New York City belong to a man who has been dead for over thirty years? To find out, FBI agent Jack Dolan heads to the victim's last known address: a boardinghouse in Braden, Montana. Most of the guests at Abbott House are couples seeking help from the fertility clinic run by a team of dedicated doctors. So Jack's arrival is a pleasant surprise for owner Isabella Abbott, who finds herself wrestling with feelings she's never had before. Jack, too, shares the powerful connection, and is all too aware of the danger of letting personal desires get in the way of an investigation. He suspects someone ruthless is lurking in the shadows—someone with orders to kill. But what secrets are worth dying for in this peaceful place that offers miracles to desperate couples? And is Isabella part of the savage mystery that surrounds White Mountain? But the more Jack learns, the more he understands why the secrets of White Mountain must be kept hidden. At all costs.

The White Mountains attract hundreds of thousands of visitors every year, all fascinated by the natural beauty of the area and awestruck each season anew by what the region has to offer. Adventurous city-dwellers began arriving almost as soon as carriages and dirt roads could carry them. As the number of visitors has increased with each passing year, one of the most telling barometers of change in the White Mountains has been the hostelry. This wonderful visual history reveals the history of the hotels, inns, and taverns in the White Mountains, and explains their impact on the area from the mid-nineteenth century to the late twentieth. Travel was an adventure in the mid-nineteenth century--not for the weak of heart--and travelers would generally find accommodations in taverns on stage routes or in local farmhouses. The arrival of "steel roads" made the region much more accessible, and large, opulent hotels were built to cater to the rich and famous while more modest country inns provided a quieter environment for artists and writers seeking sanctuary from the cities. Some of the most fascinating images here portray the opulent lifestyle that was enjoyed amidst the forests and falls of the mountains and capture a sense of serenity that was not to last.

The White Mountain National Forest and Great North Woods have been described as “nature’s mammoth museum.” This is a land of many lakes and rivers, mountains and waterfalls, and pristine natural splendor, abundant with historic charm. The White Mountain National Forest was established by presidential proclamation in 1918. It owes its existence to the passage of the Weeks Act of 1911, which enabled the federal government to purchase land and establish a national forest in New Hampshire’s White Mountains. It is one of the most visited natural sites in the country, and tourists from all over the world make seasonal visits to this recreational haven. This book takes the reader on a historical journey through the national forest, including the majesty and grandeur of the Presidential Range, Great Gulf Wilderness, Pemigewasset Wilderness, and Sandwich Range Wilderness, as well as Franconia Notch, Pinkham Notch, Crawford Notch, and Great North Woods.

My white name is Kathy, but my Indian name is Cornflower. I was born in the time when the flowers blossom in the stalks of corn around our village. The cornflower blossom was the first thing my father saw after I had been brought into the world of men. That is why I have the name Cornflower. A cornflower is a small blue flower that likes to blossom in the corn fields. Some white people call it a bachelor’s button because men used to wear it in their buttonholes when they were courting a woman. The Apache people have grown corn for many years and the cornflower has always grown among the corn. My people have used it as medicine for many years. I live on the White Mountain Apache Reservation in Arizona. The white men call it Fort Apache. We just call it “the res”, short for the reservation. Here we are surrounded by trees and mountains, and the great White River runs through our land.
