Abstract: This paper is a continuation of Williams' classification of one-dimensional attracting sets of a diffeomorphism on a compact manifold [Topology **6** (1967)]. After defining the knot presentation of a solenoid in and some knottheoretic preliminaries, we prove *Theorem*: If and are shift classes of oriented solenoids admitting elementary presentations *K*, and *K*, , resp., where , there is an Anosov-Smale diffeomorphism *f* of such that consists of a source and a sink for which and are conjugate, resp., to and . (The author has proved [Proc. Amer. Math. Soc., to appear] that if *f* is an Anosov-Smale map of has dimension one, and contains no hyperbolic sets, then *f* has the above structure.) We also prove *Theorem*: there is a nonempty -open set in the class of such diffeomorphisms for which and is the double covering such that each *f* in defines a loop *t* in , stable up to perturbations, for which at every *x* in *t* the generalized stable and unstable manifolds through *x* are tangent at *x*.
