Reader's Thoughts


I think this is a classic read, no longer published, for those interested in native americans, writing, communication, symbols, non-textual literacy, the American West, and pre-history for the Americas. He was a thinker, not an "educated" author and in a place that ivy anthropologists and archeologists came to dominate, this is a varied approach from a non-traditional authority.
