Overview

The papers in this volume reflect a broad topical range: how transportation issues associated with the movement of people and good into and out of upland areas affects the way hunter-gatherers behave, issues of social identity and group boundaries, basic issues of time-space systematic in the central Rocky Mountains, and the basic topic of food choice and the kinds of resources used by prehistoric peoples in the Intermountain West.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Attempts to understand how hunter-gatherers operated prehistorically in the Intermountain region by focusing on the behavioral interrelationships between the use of upland and lowland areas and by structuring the use of alpine zones in terms of the environmental settings and subsistence strategies employed in adjacent foothills and valleys. Some topics are radiocarbon dates from the Uinta Basin, prehistoric hunting patterns in the Wyoming Basin, and Utah chub size utilization at Goshen Island. Lacks a subject index. The editors are affiliated with the Utah Geological Survey and an archaeological consulting service. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
