Book Description:

"Richard Frost has given us a compelling case study of the powerful process of modernization—a story of corporate greed, theft, resistance struggles and cultural innovation. The book offers both a narrative of a region and an instructive account of Indian people surviving within the maelstrom of ‘progress.’ An invaluable contribution.”

“The author’s experience with and deep understanding of Indian history and law, combined with detailed research, create a compelling picture of the impact of western railroad development on the pueblos. The paired case studies of Laguna/Acoma and Santo Domingo illuminate the range of pueblo choices and actions.”
