“This volume addresses one of the most interesting time periods in contemporary southwestern archaeological research, that of the protohistoric and early historic contacts among Plains, Puebloan, and intrusive groups. . . . [T]his is a useful volume that should be of interest to a wide audience.”—American Antiquity
“Provides models and concepts that can be used by anthropologists, archaeologists, and ethnohistorians to develop new directions in their work. This technical work, filled with charts and maps, is an important contribution to the field and is highly recommended.”—Great Plains Quarterly
“Conclusively reveals the dynamism that characterized the Greater Southwest’s northern as well as southern frontier during a period of intense change throughout North America.”—Ethnohistory
“Although focused on the Southwest, these discussions should provoke new thinking about patterns of interactions in the rest of aboriginal America. . . . A comprehensive bibliography and an index enhance the reference value. . . . These scholars of Southwestern social change are every bit as dynamic as the era they study.”—American Indian Quarterly
“Reflects several models for interpreting cultural interaction among ‘nonhierarchical societies’ in the Southwest and Plains, as well as a range of topical concerns. . . . A strong group of scholars address important issues of general significance in North American prehistory.”—Choice
