I am pleased to announce that my book on Hopi long distance runners has won the 2019 David J. Weber-Clements Center Prize for “best non-fiction book on Southwestern America.”
The award is presented annually by the William P. Clements Center for Southwest Studies and the Western History Association. I received the award last week at the Western History Association conference, which was held at the Westgate Resort and Casino in Las Vegas.
This would not have been possible without the support of many people over the years who encouraged me as I wrote and completed the book. To them, I extend a heartfelt Kwakwha!

Thanks, Arnold! I appreciate your support and encouragement. I’m now at the University of Arizona. Please let me know if you ever come down this way.

Congratulations! I am teaching a course called American Indians and Sports and one of their assignments is reading your book and writing a review.
Dina, thanks so much for your comment. I’m thrilled to know that you have assigned my book in your class, and that students will be engaging with it. When I wrote Hopi Runners, I wrote it in such a way as to give people a sense of forward motion when they read it. A book on running should have a forward motion-rhythm to it. I hope that comes through for your students. Thanks again!
