He was a white man as cunning as any Indian, a brooding man who trusted in nothing but his weapon and his horse. Shalako was determined to cross the bleak Sonoran Desert—the Apaches’ killing ground—by himself. But then he came across a European hunting party, and a brave and beautiful woman, stranded and defenseless. Shalako knew that he had to stay and help them survive. For somewhere out there was a deadly Apache warrior . . . and he had the worst kind of death in mind for them all.

But then Shalako came across a European hunting party, and a brave and beautiful woman, stranded and defenseless in the Sonoran Desert—the Apaches’ killing ground. Shalako knew he had to stay and help them survive. For somewhere out there a deadly Apache warrior had the worst kind of death in mind for them all. Catlow Ben Cowan and Bijah Catlow had been friends since they were boys. By the time they became men, Catlow was an outlaw and Cowan a U.S. marshal. So when his old friend rode to Mexico to pull the biggest robbery of his career, it became Ben’s job to hunt him down. But south of the border, Ben meets beautiful Rosita Calderon, whose presence complicates an already dangerous situation. And soon Ben realizes that the price of getting Catlow home may be more than he’s willing to pay. From the Paperback edition.

The Federal government of the United States of America has collapsed. The states have formed new alliances. But now chaos reins on the highways due to lack of law enforcement. Somehow trade between the states must continue. Into this world rides Shalako and his computerized truck. Follow his adventures in the new, and exciting action series: “Shalako Rides”. Here is a quick look at the first book of the series: “The Journey Begins” His satellite telephone rang, and Lynn asked him for a status check. "Everything is just fine," Shalako reported. "It's a beautiful night out here. I'm about 2 miles short of Strong City. Kansas. The radar showing clear road ahead. And I'm right on schedule." "That's just what we like to hear." Said Lynn." Is the truck working all right? No malfunctions, or anything like that?" "Tell Byron his baby is working like a dream. And tell him, I know he's standing right behind you, that I will take good care of her." "You're right, if he gets any closer, I'm going to smack him for blowing in my ear! He heard you. Check in in again about an hour, please," Lynn requested. "Will do, I..... What???..... Gotta go!" With that, Shalako cut off communications. Byron and Lynn looked at each other in alarm. Byron shouted, "Get him back!" "No way," said Lynn. "Something is happening out there and I won't distract him. If he needs us, he knows we will be right here. Meanwhile, we wait." Shalako sat up suddenly. A red light had begun to flash on his heads-up display. Script began to appear across the bottom of the screen. "Obstruction ahead, roadblock, decelerating." At the same time Sherry responded with, "roadblock ahead, cruise control off, brakes applied, stopping in 1500 feet, pilot assess situation." "What the heck? What now?" As the truck came to an abrupt halt in the middle of the road he thought, "I think I’ll shed some light on this situation." He reached down to the dash panel and pulled on the headlights. Immediately five 1,000,000 candlepower lights turned the scene ahead of him into daylight. Four of the lights were mounted on the truck fenders in the normal position of headlights. The fifth was mounted center line above the windscreen and tracked the motion of his helmet. He looked ahead and saw four or five cars blocking the highway. Behind the cars were two pickups with what looked like pedestal mounted weapons. And before he could say anything to them over his PA system, they opened fire!

The purpose of this publication is not to intrude upon the Shalako event or the lives of the Zuni people; nor violate its sanctity but to assist with understanding the Zuni Shalako Ceremony. Anytime we can better understand an event, the more meaningful it becomes and the more sincere our appreciation of both the event and people. My experience suggests that most all non-Zunis attending Shalako do not have an understanding of the events. They attend because of relationships or their kinship with the Zuni people or Native Americans in general. Likewise, I think that a reasonable number of Zunis particularly younger people, are also lacking in such knowledge. That is primarily because there is very little information available from which to learn; hence, a purpose of this publication. Like so many tribes in America, the Zuni have a tradition of story-telling by their elders and religious leader to perpetuate their culture. For years my family maintained a library of books from the Bureau of American Ethnology (BAE). This is the most extensive study of North American tribes in our nation’s history. It was commissioned by the Smithsonian Institution under the leadership of Director, John Wesley Powell and authorized by act of Congress. The Zuni Tribe is presented in the 23rd Annual Report 1901. Included are first-hand accounts, sketches, watercolor paintings, and photos of all religious and cultural events. As tribal elders died, so too did many religious details of their societies. Many times, Zuni elders came to us to read and study our BAE reports. They sought information on religious activities that had either been lost or diminished through the loss of religious leaders. The book is a compilation of educational and ethnic background from my personal knowledge, experience, and research. Any inconsistencies with Zuni mythology, religion, or tradition are both unintentional and my responsibility. I do not present myself as an authority on the Zuni people and their culture; nor, do I intend any disrespect.

The present volume in the series focuses on homes, residences, and dwellings. Although many fields have had a long-standing interest in different aspects of home environments, the topic has recently come to the forefront in the interdisciplinary environment and behavior field. Researchers and theorists from many disciplines have begun to meet regularly, share ideas and perspectives, and move the investigation of psychological, social, and behavioral aspects of home environments to the central arena of environment and behavior studies. This volume representative-though not comprehensive attempts to provide a sampling of contemporary perspectives on the study of home environments. As in previous volumes, the authors are drawn from a variety of disciplines, including environmental design fields of architecture and planning, and from the social science fields of psychology, sociology, anthropology, and history. This diversity of authors and perspectives makes salient the principle that the study of homes in relation to behav ior requires the contributions of many disciplines. Moreover, the chap ters in this volume reflect an array of research and theoretical view points, different scales of home environments (e.g., objects and areas, the home as a whole, the home as embedded in neighborhood and communities, etc.), design and policy issues, and, necessarily, a com parative and cross-cultural perspective. Home environments are at the core of human life in most cultures, and it is hoped that the contributions to this volume display the excite ment, potential, and importance of research and theory on homes.
