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.
