When young Charles Lummis heard about a job in the small town of Los Angeles more than a century ago, he walked all the way to it-across the plains, up Pike's Peak, down Devil's Gorge, through the Grand Canyon, over the desert. It was, by conservative estimate, one of the grandest hikes in American history. With no reason to be modest, Lummis called his "unpretentious" account of it "the wayside notes of a happy vagabonding."

Charles F. Lummis, an editor and ethnologist who wrote successfully for a broad audience, is best remembered for his books about the early legendary history of New Mexico and about the southwestern Indians, including The Land of Poco Tiempo (1893) and Mesa, Canon and Pueblo (1925). His 1891 collection of Pueblo folklore, Pueblo Indian Folk-Stories, is also a Bison Book.
