This latest volume in the Gila River Indian Community Anthropological Research Papers series by John P. Wilson provides a narrative history of the Akimel O'Odham and Pee Posh peoples who lived along the middle Gila River in south central Arizona. The manuscript covers the period between AD 1694 and 1945 for which written documentation exists, and is largely based on descriptions that were recorded by explorers, missionaries, soldiers, settlers, and others who traveled through the area. The document is an essential reference for the Historic period in southern Arizona, and considerable information is compiled in this book that has previously been unavailable elsewhere.

This is the third volume in the Gila River Indian Communityas Anthropological Research Papers series. As in the second volume, this volume presents new observations on the archaeology of the middle Gila River valley based on a full-coverage survey of 146,000 acres for the Pima-Maricopa Irrigation Project, sponsored by the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, Department of the Interior, and administered by the Tribe under the Tribal Self-Governance Act of 1994. This study identifies a new approach for studying sites that contain protohistoric assemblages (AD 1450 to 1700). E. Christian Wells reviews the evidence for protohistoric settlement in central Arizona, introduces quantitative measures to identify pottery assemblages, and suggests potential avenues for future research.
