Overview

Continuing Osprey's series on the Native American peoples, this book outlines the historical origins, ways of life, religious beliefs, material culture, and history of the very varied tribes of New Mexico and Arizona. From first contact with 16th-century Spanish explorers to the end of the Apache Wars in the 1880s, it covers not only the Apache and Navajo of the mountains and desert, but also the ancient Pueblo villages, and those tribes brushed by the horse culture of the Plains.

Both men and women of these peoples are illustrated, in 19th-century photographs, and in sumptuously detailed color plates of tribal costume.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Beautifully detailed color plates by Jonathan Smith and author Michael G. Johnson’s wide-ranging yet succinct text make American Indian Tribes of the Southwest completely worth the relatively modest cost of admission." - Toy Soldier & Model Figure

"A compact summation of the Yuman, Piman, Athabaskan and Pueblo peoples who often clashed violently with the Spanish, Mexican and American settlers...accompanying the text is the usual wealth of amply captioned photographs and eight pages of color plates rendered in exceptional detail." —Wild West magazine
