About the Author


Author Allan J. McIntyre is a historian and an art dealer specializing in the American Southwest prior to 1950. As an archaeologist and a museum collections manager for over 25 years, McIntyre became interested in Tohono O’odham history in attempting to understand connections with their prehistoric ancestors, the Hohokam. The photographs and illustrations used in this volume derive almost exclusively from the extensive archives of the Arizona Historical Society, Southern Division, in Tucson, Arizona.
