The Southwestern Journals of Adolph F. Bandelier, 1889-1892
ISBN: 0826307345

University of New Mexico Press. 1984

This fourth volume of Adolph F. Bandelier's journals covers the final years of what the pioneer anthropologist considered "the greatest undertaking of my life." During the three and a half years covered here, Bandelier was primarily in Santa Fe, New Mexico. In this volume, there is considerable information on his studies of the Puebloan culture and history visiting pueblos and archaeological sites. In addition, he commented on some of the social and economic problems, including local politics, land development, and education, of a territory just beginning to seek statehood.

The Discovery of New Mexico by the Franciscan Monk Friar Marcos de Niza in 1539
ISBN: 0816507171

University of Arizona Press. 1980

The story of Fray Marcos and the Seven Cities of Cíbola was a favorite of Adolph Bandelier (1840–1914). Bandelier’s combination of methodological sophistication and control of the archival data makes the Marcos de Niza paper important, not only as a landmark in Southwestern ethnohistory, but as a work of scholarship in its own rights, with insights on Cabeza de Vaca, Marcos, and early Southwestern exploration that are still valid today.
