Vanishing River Volume 4: Chapter 19: Landscapes and Lives along the Lower Verde River

Summary

Chapter 19 summarizes and compares the prehistoric, historic-period Yavapai and Western Apaches, and Euroamerican landscapes. Whittlesey considers the land-based units (i.e., domestic space, food production spaces, ritual spaces) that define interaction with the landscape during each of these cultural historical periods and attempts to identify landmarks associated with these units. She focuses on the following units: territorial boundaries, agricultural landscapes, procurement spaces, dwelling environments, and ritual spaces. The Verde River is the centerpiece of this landscape through time. It was many things to the many different people who used its places.
