Pecos Pueblo, a prehistoric site that is now a National Monument just a few miles from Santa Fe, New Mexico, has been a focus of archaeological interest throughout the twentieth century, in part because the Pecos area offers the possibility of a combined ethnographic, archaeological, and historical study. Rowe ruin, about a mile from Pecos Pueblo, was first excavated in 1917 by Carl Guthe but not studied systematically for some sixty years thereafter. The 1980s excavations reported in this book were undertaken by University of New Mexico archaeologists in an effort to learn the relationship between social complexity and environmental conditions. This report comprises a discussion of Rowe ruin including summaries of the environment both today and in prehistoric times, the history of research at the site, and a commentary on the process of site aggregation in the Pecos area in comparison with other localities in the northern Rio Grande valley. Also included are a transcription of the 1917 field notes of Carl Guthe, as well as technical reports on botanical, faunal, and ceramic remains and site surveys. Professional and amateur archaeologists with an interest in Puebloan societies will welcome the appearance of this long-awaited volume.

Bill was just four years old when he fell from the family wagon near the Pecos River on the western frontier. Accidentally left behind by his family, he was raised by coyotes, and he didn't realize he was human until he was an adult. When he did, Pecos Bill returned to civilization and used the superhuman powers he'd developed during his peculiar upbringing to become the best cowboy in the West.

Land grant disputes from the nineteenth century have divided and embittered some people for most of the twentieth century. In an attempt to bring final resolution to lingering controversies in New Mexico and throughout the West, in 2000 the U.S. Congress pledged to review disputed claims in the next few years. The Pecos Grant is illustrative of legal and administrative wrangling over land grants. To ensure that a U.S. Senate Committee understood the complexity of the Pecos Grant, New Mexico lawyer and historian Ralph Emerson Twitchell told them in 1923: "There are so many things in connection with this entire business that twenty King Solomons cannot unravel the knot." Yet in this book Hall does sort through the conflicting claims in the over one hundred years of Spanish, Mexican, and American legal maneuvers, legislative stalemates, and private sales involving this 18,000 acre square of land.

The ruins of the seventeenth- and eighteenth-century mission churches at the abandoned pueblo of Pecos, in northern New Mexico, have attracted the attention of travelers and scholars for over a century. Surface remains indicated that there had been at least two churches at the pueblo, and evidence of a third church was discovered through archival research in 1956. Not until 1967 did archaeologists discover that there had been four churches at Pecos.--Cover
