From the Publisher
Here are tales of fabulous advances made in anthropology, archaeology, astronomy, and linguistics, stories of the Anasazi, the "old ones" of the south-western desert, of the great explorers, eccentrics, dreamers, scientists, cranks, and geniuses. "There''s no end to the list, of course, " Connell says, "because gradually it descends from such legendary individuals to ourselves when, as children, obsessed by that same urge, we got permission to sleep in the backyard."
