165 CARTER, FOREST; STRICKLAND, RENNARD (FOREWORD). The Education Of Little Tree.
University of New Mexico Press, Albuquerque: 2011. 25th anniversary edition s Softcover. Brand new book. 
The Education of Little Tree tells of a boy orphaned very young, who is adopted by his Cherokee grandmother and half-Cherokee grandfather in the Appalachian mountains of Tennessee during the Great Depression. "Little Tree" as his grandparents call him is shown how to hunt and survive in the mountains, to respect nature in the Cherokee Way, taking only what is needed, leaving the rest for nature to run its course. Little Tree also learns the often callous ways of white businessmen and tax collectors, and how Granpa, in hilarious vignettes, scares them away from his illegal attempts to enter the cash economy. Granma teaches Little Tree the joys of reading and education. But when Little Tree is taken away by whites for schooling, we learn of the cruelty meted out to Indian children in an attempt to assimilate them and of Little Tree's perception of the Anglo world and how it differs from the Cherokee Way. "Some of it is sad, some of it is hilarious, some of it is unbelievable, and all of it is charming." - The Atlantic "There's humor, tragedy, tenderness and most of all, love . . . . A lot of people received a lot of education from their grandparents that schools don't offer. But few have expressed it as well as Little Tree has. Very good reading." - Abilene Reporter

171 CASTLEMON, HARRY (TEXT); CHARLES M. RUSSELL (ILLUSTRATIONS); THOMAS A. PETRIE (INTRODUCTION); THOMAS MINCKLER (NOTES). Frank On The Prairie.
C. M. Russell Museum: 2017. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
In 1903 the famed "Cowboy Artist," Charles M. Russell, presented his nephew Austin with a copy of the boy's adventure book Frank on the Prairie with some extraordinary enhancements. Actually, the volume already belonged to Austin, and his Uncle Charlie had borrowed it to add to its pages a series of original illustrations. This new facsimile edition of that copy, among the rarest of rare books, features little-known works of art by the artist. The prolific author of the novel Frank on the Prairie, Charles Austin Fosdick (1842-1915), who went by the pen name Harry Castlemon, was one of Russell's favorite storytellers. Castlemon's book, which first appeared in 1868 as part of the Gunboat Series of Books for Boys, recounts the adventures of young Frank and his friend Archie as they travel across the Old West. Clearly inspired by the story line, Russell produced eleven watercolors for his nephew's 1893 copy. They are beautifully reproduced here in full color, along with a single pencil sketch of mounted horsemen departing a fort. As Montana art collector Thomas Minckler explains in his essay, the extra-illustrated Frank on the Prairie displays the full range of Russell's signature subjects and themes: the regal American Indian, a pitched Indian battle of counting coup, the fur trader, an iconic buffalo hunt, the outlaw, a nighttime camp scene, a tomahawk peace pipe, and a herd of wild horses. All of these images, meticulously drawn and painted, are replicated in this facsimile version exactly as they first appeared in Austin's personal copy of the book. Frank on the Prairie was only one of a handful of books to which Russell added illustrations during his career. It is one of even fewer to contain watercolors. Showcasing Russell's artistry and his perspective on the American West, the volume is, in Minckler's words, "one of Russell's most personalized works of art." 12 color and 5 black-and-white Illustrations, 280 pages, 4.75" x 7.25". Thomas A. Petrie, CFA, is Chairman of Petrie Partners, LLC, in Denver. He formerly served as Vice Chairman of Bank of America/Merrill Lynch and was Vice Chairman of Merrill Lynch until its acquisition by Bank of America in 2009. Petrie co-founded Petrie Parkman & Co., a Denver- and Houston-based energy investment banking firm that merged with Merrill Lynch in 2006. Petrie graduated from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point and earned an MSBA (Finance) from Boston University. The Colorado School of Mines bestowed on him an honorary doctorate of engineering. Thomas Minckler, a collector, dealer, and appraiser of rare books, artwork, photographs, manuscripts, and artifacts, is the author of In Poetic Silence: The Floral Paintings of Joseph Henry Sharp.

For ages 10 and up. Kirsten's parents are barely speaking to each other, and her best friend has fallen under the spell of the school's queen bee, Brianna. It seems like only Kirsten's younger science-geek sister is on her side. Walker's goal is to survive at the new white private school his mom has sent him to because she thinks he's going to screw up like his cousin. But he's a good kid. So is his friend Matteo, though no one knows why he'll do absolutely anything that hot blond Brianna asks of him. But all of this feels almost trivial when Kirsten and Walker discover a secret that shakes them both to the core. Fast paced, marvelously funny, and brutally honest, If a Tree Falls at Lunch Period touches on universal truths about human nature.

179 CHURCH, PEGGY POND. The House At Otowi Bridge: The Story Of Edith Warner And Los Alamos.
University of New Mexico Press, Albuquerque: 1959. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
This is the story of Edith Warner, who lived for more than twenty years as a neighbor to the Indians of San Ildefonso Pueblo, near Los Alamos, New Mexico. She was a remarkable woman, a friend to everyone who knew her, from her Indian companion Tilano, who was an elder of San Ildefonso, to Niels Bohr, Robert Oppenheimer, and the other atomic scientists who worked at Los Alamos during World War II. "A finely told tale of a strange land and of a rare character who united with it and, without seeming to do anything to that end, exerted an unusual influence upon all other lovers of that soil with whom she came in contact. The quality of the country, of the many kinds of people, and of the central character come through excellently." --Oliver La Farge Peggy Pond Church (1903-1986) was born in Watrous, New Mexico and lived on the Pajarito Plateau as a child. In 1922, Church left New Mexico to attend Smith College. Returning home two years later, she lived at the Los Alamos Ranch School, which was founded by her father. Church moved from Watrous to Taos, New Mexico, then to Berkeley, California, before finally settling in Santa Fe in 1960. "A literary gem. The romance of Los Alamos, Miss Warner, and the Plateau Country will not be forgotten easily. Recommended most heartily."-- Library Journal 5.375 x 8 in., 20 drawings

180 CHURCH, PEGGY POND; CHURCH, ELIZABETH COMFORT (ILLUSTRATIONS). The Pancake Stories: Cuentos Del Panqueque.
University of New Mexico Press, Albuquerque: 1959. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
Children and their parents and grandparents will love these stories of family life, entitled The Pancake Stories because they begin with Timothy Taylor's adventures in making breakfast for his parents. Peggy Pond Church, one of the great New Mexico authors of the twentieth century, wrote these stories for her own sons in the 1930s, and her daughter-in-law Elizabeth Church created the illustrations in the 1950s. Now at last they are published, both in the original English and in Nol Chilton's Spanish translation. All the Pancake Stories are about Timothy Taylor and his family: his mother, his father, and his eccentric aunties. A horse who goes to the movies, a cat who has too many kittens, and a dog who makes everyone laugh are all part of Timothy's world. Read these stories aloud. They will remind you how much fun it is to be a child. Peggy Pond Church (1903-86) was the author of The House at Otowi Bridge: The Story of Edith Warner and Los Alamos, published in 1959 by the University of New Mexico Press and in print ever since. Church was presented with the Governor's Award for Excellence and Achievement in the Arts in 1984. Nol Chilton lives in Albuquerque and is also the translator of Tia's Tamales (UNM Press). Elizabeth Comfort Church studied art at the University of Oklahoma and the Parsons School of Design. After settling in Taos, New Mexico, she exhibited with other Taos artists.
