Title

New Trails in Mexico: An Account of One Year's Exploration in North-Western Sonora, Mexico and South-Western Arizona, 1909-1910

Description

Despite its title, much of this book is about Arizona and its remarkable borderland with Sonora, as seen by Norwegian explorer Lumholtz (1851-1922). He visited the villages of the Tohono and Akimel O’odham (Papagos and Pimas) and Cocopah, traveled the Camino del Diablo, and enjoyed camping in the desert, where he keenly observed nature. Traveling by horseback and wagon, with a local guide and helper, he was able to meet and appreciate people one-on-one, gathering information about places, language, history, and the desert. Lumholtz writes compelling about the land, noting old Indian camps and trails, sites of desert waterholes, and relationships of plants and animals. Bill Broyles.
