The kachina and the cross Indians and Spaniards in the early Southwest by Carroll L Riley ( )
6 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 1,706 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In The Kachina and the Cross Carroll Riley weaves elements of archaeology, history, and anthropology to tell a dramatic story of conflict in the seventeenth century. This fresh look at a crucial period in Southwestern history builds on Riley's recent work Rio del Norte: People of the Upper Rio Grande from Earliest Times to the Pueblo Revolt."--BOOK JACKET
The Casas Grandes world ( )
5 editions published between 1999 and 2009 in English and held by 1,496 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Casas Grandes World focuses on a remarkable prehistoric culture that extended through parts of present-day Chihuahua, Sonora, New Mexico, Texas, and Arizona, centering on the large Mexican site of Casas Grandes. Using the seminal work of Charles Di Peso as a touchstone, and drawing on significant new archaeological work, this volume offers a re-evaluation of the extent, history, and meaning of the great site and its far-reaching connections. It also considers influences on the Hohokam of Arizona and the peoples of west Mexico, positing the existence of a vast sphere of Casas Grandes cultural influence."--BOOK JACKET
Rio del Norte people of the Upper Rio Grande from earliest times to the Pueblo revolt by Carroll L Riley ( )
7 editions published between 1995 and 1999 in English and held by 1,255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Based on the most up-to-date archaeological and historical research, Rio del Norte is a tour de force, highlighting the upper Rio Grande region and its diverse peoples across some twelve thousand years of continuous history. Over eleven millenia ago, Paleoindians tracked mammoth and bison in the Rio Grande Basin. As the Ice Ages ended and arid conditions caught hold, the place of the Paleoindians was taken by bands of hunters and gatherers who long maintained a presence in the valleys, deserts, and mountains. Three thousand years ago the idea of domesticated plants filtered up from Mexico. The Basketmaker-Pueblo, or Anasazi, appeared in the early centuries of the common era and flourished in the San Juan basin and the Four Corners region for several centuries. Anasazi occupation of the San Juan region ended about seven hundred years ago, yet that same period saw a quickening along the Rio Grande and its tributaries. Large towns appeared, some holding several thousand people who practiced irrigation-based agriculture, rich artistry, and maintained complex social and political organizations. Trade with the civilizations of Mexico brought various luxury goods and introduced new and spectacular religious ceremonies. This "golden age" was continuing when Spaniards moving from west Mexico contacted the upper Rio Grande people, then colonized and missionized the region in 1598. Eighty-two years later the Pueblos rose in a powerful revolt and ousted the invaders. In one sense Rio del Norte is about the flexibility of the Pueblo lifeway. During the fifteen hundred years of Basketmaker-Pueblo history, settlers of the Rio Grande and the San Juan River basin faced military threats from hungry nomads and European empire builders, internal pressures caused by the increasing complexity of Pueblo society, and recurring problems from the vagaries of weather. Although the Spanish returned, the Pueblos have maintained important parts of their cultural heritage to the present
Bandelier the life and adventures of Adolph Bandelier by Charles H Lange ( )
5 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 1,135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Adolph Bandelier (1840-1914) has long been recognized as one of the most significant figures in the early history of anthropology and archaeology, not only in the American Southwest but also in Mexico and South America. With almost no formal education, Bandelier succeeded in painting a rich picture of prehistoric American Indian life - a truly unique accomplishment for his day. Because of his extensive work on the Frijoles Canyon Anasazi complex, Bandelier National Monument, between Santa Fe and Los Alamos, carries his name. Bandelier presents a picture of a man who was an explorer in every sense of the word. From his early years as the child of Swiss immigrants in Illinois through his travels around the Southwest, Mexico, then Peru and Bolivia, Bandelier followed his interests wherever they led, counting as his influences Lewis Henry Morgan and the German naturalist Baron Alexander von Humboldt. This accessible biography places Bandelier at the juncture of two eras: the old, in which antiquarians could call themselves archaeologists, and the new, in which archaeology began to establish itself as a science

Becoming Aztlan : Mesoamerican influence in the greater Southwest, AD 1200-1500 by Carroll L Riley ( Book )
5 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In Becoming Aztlan, Carroll Riley presents an overview of the continuities he sees in the geographically vast and culturally complex American Southwest and the adjacent northwest of Mexico. Aided by extensive illustrations, he argues that although the Southwest remained "southwestern" in its basic economy, there were drastic changes beginning around AD 1200 that transformed societies and religious life throughout the region. Riley's conclusions have sweeping implications for the future of archaeological studies in the greater Southwest."--BOOK JACKET
