    Excerpts-
    • From the book Payson, AZ

      TONTO NATIONAL FOREST

      Tonto National Forest is the fifth largest forest in the U.S. comprising 3 million acres, ranging from Saguaro cactus-studded desert to pine-forested mountains beneath the Mogollon Rim. The Rim is a topographical and geological feature cutting across the U.S. state of Arizona. It extends approximately 200 miles, starting in northern Yavapai County, it extends east ending near the New Mexico border. Tonto National Forest is referred to as an "urban" forest given its proximate boundaries with Phoenix to the south, the Mogollon Rim to the north and the San Carlos and Fort Apache Indian reservations to the east. Annual visitors to Tonto National Forest match the number of visitors to the Grand Canyon with recreational opportunities throughout the year given its diversity for recreation.

      TONTO NATURAL BRIDGE STATE PARK

      The Tonto Natural Bridge is the world's largest travertine natural bridge, formed by a small stream flowing through a shady canyon in the wooded foothills of the Mogollon Rim. The Bridge can be accessed for sightseeing along several short trails: Gowan Trail, a steep climb; Pine Creek Trail, a longer path with ample view of the bridge; and Waterfall Trail, a short path into the canyon above the bridge. The site became a state park in 1990 and is located ten miles north of the city of Payson on Highway 87.

      TONTO APACHE RESERVATION

      The Tonto Apache Reservation is located on Highway 87 in central Arizona, 94 miles northeast of Phoenix and 94 miles southeast of Flagstaff, within the town limits of Payson, Arizona. The reservation was originally named Te-go-suk, or "Place of the yellow water." The traditional lands of the Apache Ndeh translated means People, extended from Texas through New Mexico and Arizona into Mexico and California. Over time, the many bands of Apache were forcibly relocated to reservations. The Rio Verde Reserve was established in 1871 for the Tonto and Yavapai Indians. In 1875, the Tonto and Yavapi were forcibly moved to the San Carlos Apache Reservation. Twenty years later, some of the Tonto Tribe returned to the Payson area.

      The Tonto Apache Tribe was federally recognized by Congressional Act in 1972.According to the 2010 decennial census, approximately 120 individuals live on Tonto Apache Tribal Land in Arizona. They operate the Mazatazal Casino and the Paysonglo Lodge in Payson. The reservation is at the Mogollon Rim and is near the Tonto National Forest and Tonto Natural Bridge, and local sites of interest such as Zane Grey's historic cabin and Strawberry Schoolhouse, the oldest standing schoolhouse in Arizona.

      Authors of the well-received Native American Almanac, Dennis (educational director, Children's Cultural Ctr. of Native America) and Hirschfelder (formerly with the Association of American Indian Affairs; Native Americans: A History in Pictures; The Extraordinary Book of Native American Lists) provide copious data on 729 Native American sites, describing rituals and celebrations (including powwows and roundups), artifacts, history, and visitors' activities. They offer thorough background information on parks, pageants, monuments, and landmarks as well as detailed coverage of the holdings of museums and heritage or cultural centers. A thoughtful introduction explains the absence of most battlefields. There are brief evocations of regions (plains, mountains), with the authors noting the number of Indigenous nations and Native citizens in each state. Phone numbers, websites, and abundant black-and-white photos help with trip planning, but there are no maps or ranking of attractions. General resources and a short list of mostly recent further reading extend the book's reach. As the authors mention, this title covers only Canada and the United States, not Indigenous sites in the other 21 North American countries and nine dependent territories. Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the Northern Marianas are discussed, however. VERDICT This authoritative, information-packed volume will be invaluable for tourists but also useful to others researching Indian history, heritage, and current cultural production.--Patricia D. Lothrop, formerly of St. George's Sch., Newport, RI
