About this title


The Chichimec Sea is a metaphorical term for that large area of mountain, desert, and desiccated lake bed that covers much of northern Mexico and parts of the southwestern United States. Aboriginally—indeed, well into his­toric times—this large area was inhab­ited by diverse bands of Indians who had in common mainly the fact that they shared neither in the complex civi­lization of Mesoamerica nor the sub-­Mesoamerican cultures of the Greater Southwest.


This comprehensive and unified vol­ume of original essays deals with the complex problems of interaction—across and around the Chichimec Sea—between Mesoamerica and the South­west. The twenty contributions to this volume, by anthropologists, archaeol­ogists, geographers, ethnohistorians, and ethnobotanists, all deal with diverse aspects of the problem of Mesoamerican­-Southwest contacts.
