More About the Author
The Great Basin: People and Place in Ancient Times (2008 School for Advanced Research Press, Santa Fe, New Mexico). Written for a popular audience, this book is also important to archaeologists working outside of the Great Basin who seek to place their work in larger context. I require it to be read by my graduate students to expand their thinking and writing beyond the technical literature.
Ancient Peoples of the Great Basin and Colorado Plateau (2008 Left Coast Press, Walnut Creek, California). This is the only general synthesis of this expansive region. One archaeologist told me he recommends this book to his Southwesternist colleagues because this book tells the story of the Great Basin on a continental scale.
Traces of Fremont: Society and Rock Art in Ancient Utah (2010 University of Utah Press, Salt Lake City). Spectacular photography by Francois Gohier is paired with a narrative written for a public audience to set forth a new perspective on the Fremont culture, the northernmost of the Southwestern farming cultures. This book is the 2011 recipient of a Society for American Archaeology Book Award and is a finalist for the Utah Book Awards.

A nice addition to one's library of rock (petroglyphs and pictographs). There are photos not seen in other sources. I would recommend this nice publication.Published on June 21, 2012 by John E. Remakel
