“[This book] presents a great amount of new information for a poorly known or understood area of northern Mexico, and provides a pleasant integration of the methods and theories of anthropology, geography, and ecology in a well-organized manner. . . . This report represents an important contribution to our understanding of cultural evolution and environmental adaptation in the Valley of Sonora and lays a strong framework for future studies and discussions.”—Journal of Arizona History
“The author’s presentation is crisp and lucid throughout.”—Latin American Anthropology Review

“Overall, this book is an excellent and interesting study. Rarely are the insights of archaeology and ethnohistory so advantageously employed together.”—Ethnohistory

“Doolittle has provided us with a very detailed description of the Valley of Sonora and for those of us interested in Northern Mexico he has pulled together a great deal of information and focused it on the issue of how the past is to be interpreted. This is an important issue.”—Agricultural History
