Kennedy A Rare Photographic History John Bisney & J. L. pickering; foreword By christopher c. kraft Jr. This engaging and unprecedented work captures the compelling story of John F. Kenne- dy’s role in advancing the United States’ space program, set against the Cold War with the Soviet Union. The stunning collection of history and photographs crafted by authors John Bisney and J. L. Pickering illustrates Kennedy’s close association with the race to space during his legendary time in office. In addition to the exhaustive research and rare photographs, the authors have also included excerpts from Kennedy’s speeches, news conferences, and once-secret White House recordings to provide the reader with more context through the president’s own words. While Kennedy did not live to see the fruition of many of the endeavors he supported, his legacy lives on in many ways—many of which are captured in this important work. John Bisney is a former correspondent who covered the space program for more than thirty years for CNN, the Dis- covery Channel, and SiriusXM Radio, among other news out- lets. He is also the coauthor, with J. L. Pickering, of Spaceshots and Snapshots of Projects Mercury and Gemini: A Rare Photo- graphic History (UNM Press) and Moonshots and Snapshots of Project Apollo: A Rare Photographic History (UNM Press). J. L. pickering is a space-flight historian who has been archiving rare space images and historic artifacts for some forty years.

This book outlines the multifaceted history of the sport, from its beginnings in Basque country to its North American “unveiling” at the 1904 Louisiana Purchase Centennial Exposition and World’s Fair and to its rise and fall in popularity in the United States. Guest essays and historic photographs offer extensive insight into the sport’s fascinating history. Morton further explores the players and venues, providing a carefully crafted and thoroughly researched look into jai alai. Sports lovers and cultural history enthusiasts will marvel at the sport’s unique history and reach. pauLa e. morton is an independent journalist and the author of Tabloid Valley: Supermarket News and American Culture and Tortillas: A Cultural History (UNM Press). sports • cultural studies 12 university of new mexico press Also of Interest Navajos Wear Nikes A Reservation Life Jim Kristofic $24.95 paper 978-0-8263-4947-7 April 376 pp. 6 × 9 35 figs., 2 maps $34.95 paper ISBN 978-0-8263-6067-0 $52.50 CAD E-ISBN 978-0-8263-6068-7 Medicine Women The Story of the First Native American Nursing School Jim kristofic After the Indian wars, many Americans still believed that the only good Indian was a dead Indian. But at Ganado Mission in the Navajo country of northern Arizona, a group of missionaries and doctors—who cared less about saving souls and more about saving lives—chose a different way and persuaded the local parents and medicine men to allow them to educate their daughters as nurses. The young women struggled to step into the world of modern medicine, but they knew they might become nurses who could build a bridge between the old ways and the new. In this detailed history Jim Kristofic traces the story of Ganado Mission on the Navajo Indian Reservation. Kristofic’s personal connection with the community creates a nuanced historical understanding that blends engaging narrative with careful scholarship to share the stories of the people and their commitment to this place. Jim kristofic grew up on the Navajo Reservation in northeastern Arizona. His award-winning books The Hero Twins: A Navajo-English Story of the Monster Slayers and Navajos Wear Nikes: A Reservation Life, are both published by UNM Press. He lives in Taos, New Mexico. history • southwest
