Welcome to Avanyu Publishing
Avanyu brings to the public the history, culture, art and ceremonies of the Native American people of the Southwest as chronicled by Southwestern explorers.
Avanyu's newest edition is A Mad, Crazy River, Running the Grand Canyon in 1927. In 1927 Clyde Eddy and a crew of East Coast college boys, a mongrel dog,
and a bear cub set off to run the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon during flood stage.
The story is very well told, hair-raising and suspenseful.
This is a true adventure story. Eddy had with him a movie camera and the 1927 documentary-style film is also available.
Avanyu has brought back into print early studies of the Hopi Indians of Arizona, with Hopi Snake Ceremonies and Moki Snake Dance,
as well as the first-hand and contemporary insight and opinions of tribal members in Kachinas, Spirit Beings of the Hopi.
Avanyu's titles on the Native American Indians of the Southwest have shared the first impressions of those who explored the pre-historic sites of the Mimbres Valley
in southern New Mexico and the Mesa Verde cliff dwellings in southwestern Colorado, in Mimbres Art and Archaeology and Mesa Verde, Ancient Architecture, with thousands of readers.
Avanyu Publishing's highly illustrated, history-oriented and contemporary Indian/Western art and culture books appeal to everyone interested in Native American art and history and
Western Americana libraries and art collectors.
Avanyu also offers the charming, award-winning children's book, Grandmother's Adobe Dollhouse. This delightful book shares information on the various cultures of the Southwest
that children and adults will find enlightening, enchanting, and educational.
