3 editions published in 1967 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"James Deetz explores the principles, methods, and problems of the present-day archaeologist from the viewpoint of how he works, the nature of his evidence and how it is analyzed, and where archaeology fits into the broader scheme of anthropological study. Excavation, radiocarbon dating, form analysis, space-time slope patterns, as well as the context, function, and structure of uncovered artifacts and sites are all carefully considered; and their role in piecing together cultures of the past is discussed."--Jacket

The wolf: the ecology and behavior of an endangered species by L. David Mech( Book )

1 edition published in 1970 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Years of research during the 1960s in Michigan's Isle Royale National Park provided Mech with a level of firsthand knowledge shared by few in the field. In 1970 he compiled his findings (updated in 1980) into the preeminent document of its kind. Thomas McNamee, author of The Return of the Wolf to Yellowstone, calls the book the "best single source of information on wolf biology," and refers to its author as "the undisputed king of wolf research." When government officials in the early 1990s decided to embark on an ambitious project to reintroduce wolves into their former range of Yellowstone National Park, they called on Mech's expertise. All this is to say that, if you want to learn about wolves, you cannot ignore this seminal work or its author. Chapters cover wolf evolution, range, and physiology; society and pack behavior; reproduction; hunting and predator-prey relationships; and the species' uncertain future. Like any self-respecting scientist, Mech includes all the hard data, but he presents his work in an engaging manner that is accessible to a broader audience, drawing heavily on anecdotes and personal experience."--Amazon.ca (book desc. 1981 ed.)

Drawing shadows to stone : the photography of the Jesup North Pacific Expedition, 1897-1902 by Laurel Kendall( Book )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book reexamines photographs from an early anthropological expedition to the North Pacific after a century of change. In 1897 Morris Jesup, president of the American Museum of Natural History in New York, sponsored a five-year expedition to Alaska and Siberia. This immense research project left a legacy of classic ethnographies, irreplaceable museum collections, and some three thousand photographs." "Thomas Ross Miller and Barbara Mathe examine how early anthropologists saw their task and how they used photographs as cultural and biological data, as documentation of places, events, and artifacts, and as models for future exhibits."--Jacket
