Julian D. Hayden
Life as a Desert Archaeologist
Field Man is the memoir of renowned southwestern archaeologist Julian Dodge Hayden—a blue-collar scholar who challenged conventional thinking on the antiquity of man in the New World, brought a formidable pragmatism to the identification of stone tools, and who is remembered as the leading authority on the prehistory of the Sierra Pinacate.
South of the border, a spectacular range of ancient volcanoes rises from the desert floor just a few miles from the Sea of Cortez. Virtually untraveled, the Sierra Pinacate in northwestern Mexico beckons adventurers and scientists. Here, in words and pictures, is a remarkable introduction to this place of almost surreal beauty.
