Frank Hamilton Cushing's stay at Zuni pueblo from 1879 to 1884 made him the first professional anthropologist actually to live with his subjects. Learning the language and winning acceptance as a member not only of the tribe but of the tribal council and the Bow Priesthood, he was the original participant observer and the only man in history to hold the double title of "1st War Chief of Zuni, U. S. Ass't Ethnologist." A pioneer in southwestern ethnology, he combined the discipline of science with a remarkable imaginative capacity for identifying with Indian modes of thought and perception - and corresponding gifts of expression.'We now have a convenient text which will introduce Cushing to a wider audience and will provide a convenient point of departure for studies of his life and work. Jesse Green has put together a handsome book, with good selections and introductory material informed by valuable and extensive notes and fine maps and illustrations and a splendid bibliography. As a work of scholarship, it is a model of what such things should be' - "American Indian Culture and Research Journal". 'The book is profusely illustrated with historic photographs and detailed line drawings. "Zuni"...should appeal to all levels of readers, professional and nonprofessional. Highly recommended' - "Choice". A professor of English at Chicago State University, Jesse Green has also edited "Cushing at Zuni", "The Correspondence and Journals of Frank Hamilton Cushing, 1879-1884".
