This book includes words from Jordan about his preoccupation with digs and the manner in which he began his hobby. it is also a treasure trove of photographs by J.K. Putnam of the things found - animal skulls, implements from the colonial era such as cannonballs, spoons buttons and shoes, bottles for any number of contents, ceramics from dishes to dolls to pipes, leather, wood, ivory, metal, and even art. Jordan interrupts the flow of pictures with tales of a near fatal collapse of a clay cliff, with comments about certain of his finds - all information that adds to the pleasure of retracing history.
This is an art book, and homage to a collector gone wild, and a fascinating peek into the treasures that lie beneath our streets, buildings and parks almost anywhere in this country - or this world! Grady Harp, November 10
