McIntyre, a historian of the Southwest United States, offers a historical snapshot of the Tohono O'odham people (formerly referred to as the Papago) who have inhabited Arizona's Sonoran Desert and nearby lands across the Mexican border (an area the Spanish called Pimeria Alta) for millennia. Black and white photographs taken between 1870 and 1940 comprise the main content of the book, while accompanying text describes the era as a time of great change for the Tohono O'odham, encompassing multiple attempts by the government to organize the areas tribes into reservations and a variety of environmental challenges. The chapters discuss the people's ancient history, the legacy of Spain in the architecture and peoples of the Pimeria Alta region, Tohono O'odham homes and village life, pottery and baskets, and the confluence of different cultures represented by today's Tohono O'odham.
