For the first fourteen years of his life, David K. Mc Arthur lived on a huge sheep ranch encompassing the slopes of Idaho's Coyote Mountain. Left with his aunt and uncle while the rest of his family lived in California, David wouldn't meet his siblings until he turned three. David's tiny home had no electricity or running water. When his family visited, a tarp was strung across the room to create some measure of privacy for the two families. The children slept in the tiny attic. From the Shadows of Coyote Mountain recounts David's eventful life-and the tensions that brewed within his family. Those who grew up in the poverty of the Great Depression and the dustbowl era had two paths laid out for them. They could give up and subside on what little they had or they could fight for something more. David chose to fight. His path led him to his family in Oakland, a tour with the US Marine Corp, and a Captaincy at the Oakland Fire Department. This is a man who, quite literally, survived fire and flood before he reached his teens. This is his story.

After forming an intense bond with Natasha, a wolf cub she raised as part of her undergraduate research, Renée Askins was inspired to found the Wolf Fund. As head of this grassroots organization, she made it her goal to restore wolves to Yellowstone National Park, where they had been eradicated by man over seventy years before. In this intimate account, Askins recounts her courageous fifteen-year campaign, wrangling along the way with Western ranchers and their political allies in Washington, enduring death threats, and surviving the anguish of illegal wolf slayings to ensure that her dream of restoring Yellowstone’s ecological balance would one day be realized. Told in powerful, first-person narrative, Shadow Mountain is the awe-inspiring story of her mission and her impassioned meditation on our connection to the wild.

To think and write intelligently, one must become aware of the larger issues and problems that concern modern man. In order to provide a developing writer with a perspective that is broad, social, cultural, and historical, editors Cherry, Conley and Hirsch have compiled a wide variety of literary selections that include: essays (descriptive, narrative, argument and persuasion, exposition, definition, comparison and contrast, cause and effect, problem-solution, example and illustration, classification and division); short stories; and poems. Arranged thematically, selections explore the nature of man, his relationships to his natural and cultural environments, and his continuous search for a viable identity. Part one considers man's need to perceive himself as being of special significance in relation to the universe and the natural world. Part two deals with man's search for a viable identity through culture and civilization. Part three explores the role of modern technology in contemporary culture and the nature of the responsibilities it imposes on man. Part four examines mans use of his own creative and imaginative potential in his search for valid definitions of himself and of reality. Part five is concerned with man's need and capacity to achieve a new and viable harmony with a rapidly changing world--From publisher description.

In American Indian societies, storytelling and speech-making are invested with special significance, crafted to reveal central psychological and social values, tensions, and ambi-guities. As Karl Kroeber notes, "It is our scholarship, not Indian storytelling, that is primitive, undeveloped." ø This book is an essential introduction to the study and appreciation of American Indian oral literatures. The essays, by leading scholars, illuminate the subtle artistry of form and content that gives spoken stories and myths an enduring vitality in native communities yet often makes them perplexing to outsiders. The presentation and analysis of complete oral texts, often without translations, enable the reader to grasp the meaning, purpose, and structure of the tales and to become familiar with the techniques scholars use to translate and interpret them. ø This expanded edition of the widely praised collection contains a recent analysis of the Wintu myth of female sexuality, a revised introduction by Karl Kroeber, a contribution by Dell Hymes, a new translation by Dennis Tedlock, and a new, annotated bibliography.

"Teaching Indigenous Languages is a selection of papers presented at the Fourth Annual Stabilizing Indigenous Languages Symposium "Sharing Effective Language Renewal Practices" held at Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, Arizona, on May 1, 2, and 3, 1997. This conference brought together nearly three hundred indigenous language experts, teachers, and community activists to share information on how indigenous languages can best be taught at home and at school. The twenty-five papers collected here represent the experiences and thoughts of indigenous language activists who are working in the United States, Canada, New Zealand, and Mexico. The papers are grouped under six categories: tribal and school roles, teaching students, teacher education, curriculum and materials development, language attitudes and promotion, and a summing up of thoughts about maintaining and renewing indigenous languages"--Back cover.

Through his stunning photography, Wyman Meinzer chronicles the life of the coyote from a flea-covered, one-pound fuzzball whelp into a glistening, furry jewel that moves with fluid grace across the Texas plains. The coyote has become the symbol of western freedom in popular culture, and historically its range was limited to west of the Mississippi River. Yet now—in spite of a hundred-year effort to exterminate this wild canine—coyote howls can be heard from Los Angeles to the Bronx and from Alaska to Costa Rica. Apart from the mythology, until recently little has been known about this intelligent, adaptable creature.As he did with The Roadrunner, Meinzer gives us a personal account of the years he spent observing and photographing this often maligned animal. Seasoned with humor and poignancy, his observations give us a glimpse into the heart and soul of this intelligent and adaptable native North American.
