Linda S. Cordell (1943–2013) was a leading archaeologist and anthropologist who began her career at a time when few women rose to prominence in the field. A professor, lifelong researcher, author, field school director, department chair, and museum specialist—the study of the American Southwest, rnparticularly the northern Rio Grande, was at the center of her life’s work. Among Dr. Cordell’s many honors and awards in recognition of her contributions to the field of archaeology are election to the National Academy of Sciences, election to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and earning the Society for American Archaeology’s Lifetime Achievement Award. The American Anthropological Association awarded Cordell the A. V. Kidder medal for eminence in American Archaeology, making her the second woman to have won the Kidder medal in its sixty years of existence. Contributors to this volume in memory of Dr. Cordell are established scholars and influential Southwest archaeologists. In chapters covering diverse topics from Pueblo ceramics and tree-ring dating to Southwest migrations and NAGPRA, they offer a broad view of the Southwest as seen through the influence of one extraordinary individual. Cordell’s research and work contributed to a greater understanding of Ancestral Pueblo life in the Southwest.

Nuevomexicanos por Vida, '81–'83
Trim: 11" x 12"
Pages: 140 pages
Illustrations: 82 duotone photos
This book is a photographic documentation of Hispanic New Mexicans (Nuevomexicanos) taken between 1981 and 1983 in Albuquerque and Santa Fe and in several northern New Mexico villages. While there is an insider intimacy to the photographs in this book, they have a gritty sense of reality that is neither disturbing nor challenging. The people, whether looking directly into the lens or away from it, appear to be at ease with the photographer and his camera. Many of these photographs are timeless, while others are a time capsule of the early eighties in New Mexico. This collection will evoke nostalgia of the era and life in New Mexico "back in the day." There is also a universality about the images and time period that will appeal to wider audiences.

Michael Wallis weaves the complex story of Los Luceros throughout the larger context of northern New Mexico history, from the earliest human inhabitants to the present day, introducing its past occupiers, owners, and visitors, including Spanish and American soldiers and cavalrymen. During Mary Cabot Wheelwright’s long reign at Los Luceros, it was visited by New Mexico’s prominent writers, artists, and art patrons, including Georgia O’Keeffe, Mabel Dodge Luhan, and D.H. Lawrence. During the past decade, the property was acquired by the State of New Mexico to be managed by New Mexico Historic Sites as a living museum.
