Celluloid Pueblo

Western Ways Films and the Invention of the Postwar Southwest

The University of Arizona Press

Celluloid Pueblo tells the story of Western Ways Features and its role in the invention of the Southwest of the imagination. The story closely follows the boom and bust arc of this region in the mid-twentieth century and the constantly evolving representations of an exotic—but safe and domesticated—frontier and the landscape, regional development, and diverse cultures of Arizona and the Southwest.

The Northern Rockies

A Fire Survey

The University of Arizona Press

The Northern Rockies are one of three major hearths for America’s fire culture. They hold a major fire laboratory, an equipment development center, an aerial fire depot, and a social engagement with fire—even a literature. Missoula is to fire in the big backcountry what Tallahassee is to prescribed burning and what Southern California is to urban-wildland hybrids. On its margins, Boise hosts the National Interagency Fire Center. In this structured collection of essays on the region, Stephen J. Pyne explores what makes the Northern Rockies distinctive and what sets it apart from other regions of the country. Surprisingly, perhaps, the story is equally one of big bureaucracies and of generations that encounter the region’s majestic landscapes through flame.

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.”
