Canyon gardens : the Ancient Pueblo landscapes of the American Southwest( Book )

4 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 374 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Canyon Gardens is the long-awaited sequel to Anasazi Architecture and American Design (UNM Press). It takes a new look at ancient and modern Puebloan gardening and landscape design approaches. Part One examines early Puebloan landscapes in detail, including compact gardens and terraces, site planning, the integration of farming and landscape design into settlement complexes, and the unit-courtyard complexes of the Mesa Verde country. It also covers the first meeting of the Ancient Puebloan tradition with Spanish traditions in seventeenth-century New Mexico and the Puebloan uses of plants. New field research is included--recent findings about the Zuni area, the upper Rio Grande country, and the Tompiro and Tiwa canyons and valleys in the Manzano Range. Part Two looks at the Ancient Puebloan culture's influence today. Chapters here examine the uses of the historic landscape in today's agriculture and horticulture and the impact of governmental regulations on traditional habits of gardening and land use and perception. Modern architects, site planners, and landscape architects will find these new-found qualities of the Southwestern landscape fascinating and inspirational.--Amazon.com

Relation of Nuñez Cabeza de Vaca by Alvar Núñez Cabeza de Vaca( Book )

9 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cabeza de Vaca's narrative of his South American expeditions is a detailed account of his five years as governor of Spain's province of the Rio de la Plata in South America. Cabeza de Vaca was already a celebrated explorer by the time he went to La Plata, known for his great trek across North America in the 1520s and 1530s and for the Relación he wrote about that journey. His tales of his river and forest explorations in South America show that he had lost none of his early curiosity and drive. He was the great secular champion of the native peoples of the New World and the only Spaniard to explore the coasts and interiors of two continents

"Set in Somalia just after its independence in the 1960s, Horses Like the Wind and Other Stories of Africa is a collection of nine short storied that paint a portrait of the many different lives that intertwine along the Horns of Africa. A ruthless horse dealer comes up against the best tracker in the Somali army; transplanted Italian farmers look to a future of stark disintegration as they struggle to hold on to their lands and their families; gutsy American women attempt to establish lives of their own in the remote East African desert; and a beggar and an idealist meet in a chance encounter on the steps of a Mogadishu bank, with mind-numbing consequences."--BOOK JACKET
