Adventures On America`s Public Lands

By Mary Tisdale and Bibi Booth, editors 1588340813

The Bureau of Land Management (all you non-Westerners say together "WHO?") oversees some of the US of A`s greatest outdoor recreational possibilities. Until now, many of them have fallen into the "Best Kept Secrets" category, but this new Department of Interior survey blows the doors off the secret. From New Mexico to Alaska - and even some sites in Florida, the Dakotas and some Eastern States - opportunities to hike, bike, ride your four-wheeler, watch the birds, plants and animals, explore slot canyons, high peaks and ancient historic sites are all detailed in this beautifully illustrated tome. If you`re headed West (or live here), this one is essential. 2003.

Bad Medicine and Good

By Wilbur Sturtevant Nye 806129654

One of the great tribes of the Southwest Plains, the Kiowas were militantly defiant toward white intruders in their territory and killed more during seventy-five years of raiding than any other tribe. Now settled in southwestern Oklahoma, they are today one of the most progressive Indian groups in the area. In Bad Medicine and Good, Wilbur Sturtevant Nye collects forty-four stories covering Kiowa history from the 1700s through the 1940s, all gleaned from interviews with Kiowas (who actually took part in the events or recalled them from the accounts of their elders), and from the notes of Captain Hugh L Scott at Fort Sill.
