              There are many books on the art of directing. This is the only book about the career itself. Building on the success and popularity of the 1st edition of The Working Director, this new edition adds entirely new and up-to-the-minute focus on the current world of the entry-level fi...lmmaker, the filmmaker looking to move up, and the director who's fighting to reinvent a once promising career. Readers learn where filmmakers find the filmmaking skills they need, how to approach the so-critical first film, how to land that first directing job, and how to get a suddenly silent phone to start ringing again. Using examples from his three decades directing high-profile productions, writer/director Charles Wilkinson shares a thousand lessons learned by himself and his fellow working directors.

              In his memoir, Alvin Ziontz reflects on his more than thirty years representing Indian tribes, from a time when Indian law was little known through landmark battles that upheld tribal sovereignty. He discusses the growth and maturation of tribal government and the underlying tens...ions between Indian society and the non-Indian world. A Lawyer in Indian Country presents vignettes of reservation life and recounts some of the memorable legal cases that illustrate the challenges faced by individual Indians and tribes.As the senior attorney arguing U.S. v. Washington, Ziontz was a party to the historic 1974 Boldt decision that affirmed the Pacific Northwest tribes' treaty fishing rights, with ramifications for tribal rights nationwide. His work took him to reservations in Montana, Wyoming, and Minnesota, as well as Washington and Alaska, and he describes not only the work of a tribal attorney but also his personal entry into the life of Indian country.Ziontz continued to fight for tribal rights into the late 1990s, as the Makah tribe of Washington sought to resume its traditional whale hunts. Throughout his book, Ziontz traces his own path through this public history - one man's pursuit of a life built around the principles of integrity and justice.

              Poetry. Charles Wilkinson's THE GLAZIER'S CHOICE is the first substantial gathering of work by a writer who has published two previous short collections of poetry. Many of these pieces, written over a ten-year period, are characterised by a powerful sense of place, a consistently... lyrical voice and a preoccupation with the liminal, numinous and half hidden. Wilkinson's often oblique narratives eschew the first person in favour of a verse that is open and various in its technical procedures, neither mainstream nor egregiously avant-garde. A melancholic strain is sometimes leavened by humour and playful use of form.

              The Colorado River Basin's importance cannot be overstated. Its living river system supplies water to roughly forty million people in the United States, contains Grand Canyon National Park, Bears Ears National Monument, and wide swaths of other public lands, and encompasses the a...ncestral homes of twenty-nine Native American tribes. John Wesley Powell, a one-armed Civil War veteran, explorer, scientist, and adept federal administrator, articulated a vision for Euro-American colonization of the Arid Lands that has indelibly shaped the basin-a pattern that looms large not only in western history, but also in contemporary environmental and social policy. One hundred and fifty years after Powell's epic 1869 Colorado River Exploring Expedition, this volume revisits Powell's vision, considering both its historical character and its relative influence on the Colorado River Basin's cultural and physical landscape in modern times. In three parts, the volume unpacks Powell's ideas on water, public lands, and Native Americans-ideas at once innovative, complex, and contradictory. And with an eye toward climate change and a host of related challenges currently facing the basin, the volume turns to the future, reflecting on how-if at all-Powell's legacy can inform our collective vision as we navigate a new Great Unknown.
