Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Margaret Marean Wheat is a native Nevadan, born in Fallon. She attended the University of Nevada, where her bent of interest was in geology. She served with the US Geological Survey in 1947, has been a field worker in archaeology for the Nevada State Museum, and has undertaken projects in water resources for the Desert Research Institute of the University of Nevada. She has also had the unique experience of being a fire-lookout in the Toiyabe National Forest. Though she describes herself as an "amateur anthropologist", her work in the Indian field has earned her the respect of her academic colleagues.".

Synopsis:

This bestselling book illustrates how the Paiutes survived in the harsh Nevada desert climate.

Description:

Bibliographical references included in "Notes" (p. 113-117)
