The lifestyle of a people, preserved in the memory of a Pima whose life ran from the late 1800s to the Space Age. The universality of man’s eternal hope of betterment is reflected in the wisdom of the Pimas: So now I hope You will strive To make this day The best in your life. George Webb. “...a book which seems to have grown right out of the Arizona earth—anecdotal, almost artless in its directness, but having the impact of reality...a flavorsome re-creation of things past in the life of a friendly, generous people.”— The New York Times “George Webb’s gentle recollections of his childhood and Pima Indian lifeways will doubtless endure forever. This deeply moving autobiography is the perfect introduction for younger Pimas to their culture and history.” —Arizona Highways “This extraordinarily pleasant and amiable narrative wakes vivid an ancient and happy way of life”—Oliver LaFarge

Rural Arizona in the 1920's offered a harsh environment to those who chose to call it home. Life on an impoverished Indian Reservation further deepened the challenge, but it also was the turning point in my family's life. Rich and lasting friendships were developed among the Indian people, the memories of which are lasting today. This is a historical and pictorial review of the Government Agency located on the Pima Indian Reservation at Sacaton, Arizona, and a review of a number of prominent people who administered the Tribal affairs during the period between 1859-1968, after which the Tribe then became independent and se1f-governing. The book contains 105 pictures dating back into the late 1800s and into the late 1940s. Pima cotton, the worlds finest, was developed at Sacaton, and the history of this development is described. It is a wonderful and enlightening story of another time.

Katrina Jagodinsky s enlightening history is the first to focus on indigenous women of the Southwest and Pacific Northwest and the ways they dealt with the challenges posed by the existing legal regimes of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. In most western states, it was difficult if not impossible for Native women to inherit property, raise mixed-race children, or take legal action in the event of rape or abuse. Through the experiences of six indigenous women who fought for personal autonomy and the rights of their tribes, Jagodinsky explores a long yet generally unacknowledged tradition of active critique of the U.S. legal system by female Native Americans."

Southwestern American Indian Literature: In the Classroom and Beyond addresses several challenges that teaching Southwestern American Indian literature presents, and suggests innovative ways of teaching the material. Drawing on the author's experiences teaching literature - both in the classroom and in the canyons of the Southwest - the book covers works ranging from the famous (Leslie Marmon Silko's Ceremony) to the underappreciated (George Webb's A Pima Remembers). One chapter discusses teaching Sherman Alexie's Smoke Signals along with Silko's �Yellow Woman� as world literature; another functions as a guide to organizing a travel seminar that will enable students to experience American Indian literature and culture in potentially life-changing ways. This book provides a practical approach to the teaching of Southwestern American Indian literature without simplifying its inherent challenges.

In simple, unaffected prose, Mrs. Shaw constructs a moving saga of Native Americans caught between their tribal past and a Europeanized present. . . . Some of the most interesting passages deal with the wrenching realities of Indian life on the reservation in the years around the turn of the century, when the Indian male as a warrior found himself bereft of his very reason for being and forced to endeavor to become a farmer. ÑJournal of Arizona History "A most interesting book. . . . Her account of how the Pima Indians lived, their family structure, how they reared their children, courtship and marriage, how they treated their elders, their religious practices before the coming of a Christian missionary in 1870, and their accommodation with death are related in language that can be easily understood by the layman and, yet, provide information which can be used by the sociologist and anthropologist." ÑJournal of the West "The current trend in books written by American Indians is to idealize the Indian past while condemning white culture. This volume is a notable exception because its author is old enough to remember the past and because she has been successful in adapting those elements of white culture which she found useful without sacrificing this essential heritage. . . . The style is simple and straightforward, that of a good storyteller which reaches all adult levels." ÑChoice "Simple and charming reminiscences of the old Pima ways at the turn of the century when they still prevailed and of the changes which recent decades have brought about in the lives of the desert people." ÑBooks of the Southwest "Throughout her account a special kind of humor, sensitivity and pride is revealed when discussing her peoples and her own personal experiences." ÑThe Masterkey
