A propos de cet article

230pp/illus. From the dust jacket flap: "A peerless compendium of prose, poetry, painting, photography, and archival material,~this landmark anthology chronicles more than five hunbred years of one of North America's oldest and most enduring native cultures. Never before has a volume of such scope been attempted; New Mexican poet Nancy Wood has exhausted both private and public collections to painstakingly and lovingly craft an authentic, evocative vision of spiritual and everyday life in the pueblos, past and present."

A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

This peerless compendium, voted best nonfiction book of the year by the Mountains and Plains Booksellers' Association, pays tribute to one of North America's most enduring cultures, offering a rich sampling of works by noted Pueblo and non-native scholars, writers, and artists. Carefully selected from an exhaustive catalog of sources, the more than one hundred text selections include works of prose, poetry, autobiography, and historical narrative. Seventy-five unusual illustrations--from a rare drawing by D. H. Lawrence to striking portraits by photographer Edward S. Curtis and the brilliantly colorful paintings of Pablita Velarde and Helen Hardin--illuminate life in the pueblos, recording ceremonies, symbols, and spaces.

Lavishly designed in five colors, this eminently readable volume offers a story and mood for everyone and an authentic introduction to the cultural legacy of the ancient peoples of the Southwest. Fully annotated with bibliography, source notes, maps, and biographical entries, and with an inviting thematic organization for the casual reader, this beautiful book will find a permanent place in homes, libraries, and collections across the country.

Contributors include:

Paula Gunn Allen
Willa Cather
Frank Hamilton Cushing
Tony Hillerman

About the Author:

Award-winning writer and journalist Nancy Wood first became involved with the Pueblo people in 1962. Her collaboration with the late Frank Howell produced five best-selling volumes of poetry, including Spirit Walker. Her latest book is Thunderwoman: A Mythic Novel of the Pueblos, about which Booklist said in a starred review: "No thinking reader will come away unshaken, unmoved, untouched."
