Navajo History to 1846: The Land and the People.
Acrey, Bill P.
This textbook for high school, college, or adult readers covers major areas of Navajo history from prehistoric times to 1846 from the Navajo point of view. A brief description of pre-Navajo cultures including the Hohokam, Mogollon, and Anasazi precedes the more detailed history of the arrival of the Navajo and contact with the Pueblo peoples. History of contact with the Spanish, the missionary period, and Mexican rule is detailed and descriptions of economic, social, and cultural, aspects of the Navajo are included. The text concludes with the takeover of the Province of New Mexico by American troops in 1846. Footnotes and 31 black and white drawings, photographs, and maps amplify the text. An 86-item bibliography of books and articles and a subject index are appended. (LFL)
