A Fire Survey
The Northern Rockies is part of the multivolume series describing the nation’s fire scene region by region. The volumes in To the Last Smoke also cover Florida, the Northern Rockies, the Great Plains, the Southwest, and several other critical fire regions. The series serves as an important punctuation point to Pyne’s 50-year career with wildland fire—both as a firefighter and a fire scholar. These unique surveys of regional pyrogeography are Pyne’s way of “keeping with it to the end,” encompassing the directive from his rookie season to stay with every fire “to the last smoke.”

Mexican American Students Moving from the Margins of Life to New Ways of Being
Learning the Possible chronicles the experiences of five academically underprepared Mexican American students in their first year of college, aided by a federally funded one-year scholarship and support program called the College Assistance Migrant Program. CAMP works, says Reyes, and does so primarily by helping students develop new identities as successful learners.
Perspectives on Method and Theory
In this collection, four generations of Longacre protégés show how they are building upon and developing—but also modifying—the theoretical paradigm that remains at the core of Americanist archaeology. The contributions focus on six themes prominent in Longacre’s career: the intellectual history of the field in the late twentieth century, archaeological methodology, analogical inference, ethnoarchaeology, cultural evolution, and reconstructing ancient society.

Haudenosaunee Reclamation at Grand River
In February 2006, the Six Nations community of Caledonia, Ontario, occupied a 132-acre construction site, reigniting a 200-year struggle to reclaim land and rights in the Grand River region. Framed by intersecting themes of knowledge production, political resurgence, and the contributions of Haudenosaunee women, In Divided Unity provides a model for critical Indigenous theory that remains grounded in community-based concerns and actions.
