Item Description: Texas A M University Press, United States, 2000. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 230 x 154 mm. Language: English Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.In 1542 members of the thriving Caddo Indian culture came face to face with Luis de Moscoso, successor to Hernando de Soto as leader of a Spanish exploration party. That encounter marked a turning point for this centuries-old people, whose history from then on would be dominated by the interaction of the native confederacies with the empires of various European adventurers and settlers.Much has been written about the confrontations of Euro-Americans with Native Americans, but most of it has focused on the Anglo-Indian relations of the eastern part of the continent or on the final phases of the western wars. This thorough and engaging history is the first to focus intensively on the Caddos of the Texas-Louisiana border area. Primarily from the perspective of the Caddos themselves, it traces the development and effect of relations over the three hundred years from the first meeting with the Spaniards until the resettlement of the tribes on the Brazos Reserve in 1854.In an impressive work of scholarship and lucid writing, F. Todd Smith chronicles all three of the Caddo confederacies-Kadohadacho, Hasinai, and Natchitoches-as they consolidated into a single tribe to face the waves of soldiers, traders, and settlers from the empires of Spain, France, the United States, Mexico, and the Republic of Texas. It describes the delicate balance the Caddos struck with the various nations claiming the region and how that gradually evolved into a less beneficial relationship. Caught in the squeeze between Euro-American nations, the Caddos eventually sacrificed their independence and much of their culture to gain the benefits offered by the invaders. Falling victim to swindlers, they at last lost their lands and were moved to a reservation. This intriguing new view of a little-known aspect of history will fascinate those interested in the culture and fate of American Indians. Thorough in its research and comprehensive in scope, it offers valuable insight into the differing approaches of the various European and American nations to the native peoples and a compelling understanding of the futility of the efforts of even some of the most sophisticated tribes in coping successfully with the changes wrought.

Item Description: University of Nebraska Press, United States, 2008. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 224 x 150 mm. Language: English Brand New Book. From Dominance to Disappearance is the first detailed history of the Indians of Texas and the Near Southwest from the late eighteenth to the middle nineteenth century, a period that began with Native peoples dominating the region and ended with their disappearance, after settlers forced the Indians in Texas to take refuge in Indian Territory. Drawing on a variety of published and unpublished sources in Spanish, French, and English, F. Todd Smith traces the differing histories of Texas s Native peoples. He begins in 1786, when the Spaniards concluded treaties with the Comanches and the Wichitas, among others, and traces the relations between the Native peoples and the various Euroamerican groups in Texas and the Near Southwest, an area encompassing parts of Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas, and Oklahoma. For the first half of this period, the Native peoples-including the Caddos, the Karankawas, the Tonkawas, the Lipan Apaches, and the Atakapas as well as emigrant groups such as the Cherokees and the Alabama-Coushattas-maintained a numerical superiority over the Euroamericans that allowed them to influence the region s economic, military, and diplomatic affairs. After Texas declared its independence, however, the power of Native peoples in Texas declined dramatically, and along with it, their ability to survive in the face of overwhelming hostility. From Dominance to Disappearance illuminates a poorly understood chapter in the history of Texas and its indigenous people. F. Todd Smith is an associate professor of history at the University of North Texas. He is the author of several books on Texas Indians, including The Caddo Indians: Tribes on the Convergence of Empires, 1542-1854, The Wichita Indians: Traders of Texas and the Southern Plains, 1540-1845, and The Caddos, the Wichitas, and the United States, 1846-1901.

Item Description: University of Nebraska Press, United States, 2006. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 231 x 155 mm. Language: English Brand New Book. From Dominance to Disappearance is the first detailed history of the Indians of Texas and the Near Southwest from the late eighteenth to the middle nineteenth century, a period that began with Native peoples dominating the region and ended with their disappearance, after settlers forced the Indians in Texas to take refuge in Indian Territory. Drawing on a variety of published and unpublished sources in Spanish, French, and English, F. Todd Smith traces the differing histories of Texas Native peoples. He begins in 1786, when the Spaniards concluded treaties with the Comanches and the Wichitas, among others, and traces the relations between the Native peoples and the various Euroamerican groups in Texas and the Near Southwest, an area encompassing parts of Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas, and Oklahoma.For the first half of this period, the Native peoples - including the Caddos, the Karankawas, the Tonkawas, the Lipan Apaches, and the Atakapas as well as emigrant groups such as the Cherokees and the Alabama-Coushattas - maintained a numerical superiority over the Euro-Americans that allowed them to influence the region s economic, military, and diplomatic affairs. After Texas declared its independence, however, the power of Native peoples in Texas declined dramatically and along with it their ability to survive in the face of overwhelming hostility.

Item Description: University of Texas Press. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Paperback. 366 pages. Dimensions: 8.8in. x 6.0in. x 1.0in.Several hundred tribes of Native Americans were living within or hunting and trading across the present-day borders of Texas when Cabeza de Vaca and his shipwrecked companions washed up on a Gulf Coast beach in 1528. Over the next two centuries, as Spanish and French expeditions explored the state, they recorded detailed information about the locations and lifeways of Texass Native peoples. Using recent translations of these expedition diaries and journals, along with discoveries from ongoing archaeological investigations, William C. Foster here assembles the most complete account ever published of Texass Native peoples during the early historic period (AD 1528 to 1722). Foster describes the historic Native peoples of Texas by geographic regions. His chronological narrative records the interactions of Native groups with European explorers and with Native trading partners across a wide network that extended into Louisiana, the Great Plains, New Mexico, and northern Mexico. Foster provides extensive ethnohistorical information about Texass Native peoples, as well as data on the various regions animals, plants, and climate. Accompanying each regional account is an annotated list of named Indian tribes in that region and maps that show tribal territories and European expedition routes. This authoritative overview of Texass historic Native peoples reveals that these groups were far more cosmopolitan than previously known. Functioning as the central link in the continent-wide circulation of trade goods and cultural elements such as religion, architecture, and lithic technology, Texass historic Native peoples played a crucial role in connecting the Native peoples of North America from the Pacific Coast to the Southeast woodlands.

Jacket design by Melissa Jacoby. 0670825018. keywords: American Indian History. inventory # 13004. FROM THE PUBLISHER - Born in Wdkes-Barre, Pennsylvania in 1796, George Catlin was educated as a lawyer and practiced in Philadelphia for two years before abandoning the bar in 1823 for a career as a portrait painter. Catlin had been interested in Indian life since his boyhood, and in l83l—realizing that these native jop1es of the American West were dying out—he began a series of visits to various tribes, chiefly in the plains. Catlin’s work with Indians was contemporaneous with the dark period of Indian Removal, when most of the great eastern tribes were banished to the West. The western tribes were still intact, and it was at this time that Catlin observed, in Philadelphia a delegation of undomesticated Indians on their way to Washington, D.C. Catlin saw at once where his work lay ‘Nothing,’ he wrote, ‘short of the loss of my life shall prevent me from visiting their country and becoming their historian.’ From 1831 until 1837, he traveled extensively around the country and lived among the Indians—from the Muskogee and Miccosukee Creeks of the Southeast to the Lakota, Mandan and Pawnee of the West, and from the Winnebagos and Menominee of the North to the Commanches of Eastern Texas. He studied their habits, customs, and mode of life, and made copious notes and numerous sketches of Indian ceremonies, buffalo hunts, symbols and totems, and animal studies. His work completed, Catlin repaired to Albany, New York, to prepare what he called ‘Catlin’s Indian Gallery’—over 500 oil paintings, as well as a large number of ornamental shirts, robes, drums, headdresses, tepees, and other articles. Catlin’s journals, first published in 1841, constitute our most valuable record of the native peoples of the Great Plains. Bookseller Inventory # 13004
