James A. Vlasich, 384 pages, hardcover $34.95: University of New Mexico Press, 2005.
James Vlasich explores the American Indian farms along New Mexico’s Rio Grande. The 19 pueblos there have endured — despite Spanish conquistadors, land and water disputes with Anglo settlers, and the vagaries of U.S. Indian policy. Now, the Body Shop’s use of ingredients such as blue corn in exotic skin and hair-care products may bring about a modest agricultural revival.
