this guy is a great writer on the desert pre-history, and this is a great overview of the state of the art.

interesting that the seed gatherers out-competed the hunters, and in-filled the great "starving lands" of the upper southwest.
this ties in wonderfully with the RMF story of the trappers, A collection of scoundrels" i believe it was...

there it is

this is actually worth finding a hard copy. The maps (in back cover envelope) show how the area was grouped and settled by the river basins, and makes the scale of the travels even more amazing.
 
For my next feat, I will require a volunteer from the audience! Perhaps this tiny ad?
