Synopsis: Field Man is the captivating memoir of renowned southwestern archaeologist Julian Dodge Hayden, a man who held no professional degree or faculty position but who camped and argued with a who's who of the discipline, including Emil Haury, Malcolm Rogers, Paul Ezell, and Norman Tindale. This is the personal story of a blue-collar scholar who bucked the conventional thinking on the antiquity of man in the New World, who brought a formidable pragmatism and "hand sense" to the identification of stone tools, and who is remembered as the leading authority on the prehistory of the Sierra Pinacate in northwestern Mexico.
 But Field Man is also an evocative recollection of a bygone time and place, a time when archaeological trips to the Southwest were "expeditions," when a man might run a Civilian Conservation Corps crew by day and study the artifacts of ancient peoples by night, when one could honeymoon by a still-full Gila River, and when a Model T pickup needed extra transmissions to tackle the back roads of Arizona.
 To say that Julian Hayden led an eventful life would be an understatement. He accompanied his father, a Harvard-trained archaeologist, on influential excavations, became a crew chief in his own right, taught himself silversmithing, married a "city girl," helped build the Yuma Air Field, worked as a civilian safety officer, and was a friend and mentor to countless students. He also crossed paths with leading figures in other fields. Barry Goldwater and even Frank Lloyd Wright turn up in this wide-ranging narrative of a "desert rat" who was at once a throwback and--as he only half-jokingly suggests--ahead of his time.
 Field Man is the product of years of interviews with Hayden conducted by his colleagues and friends Bill Broyles and Diane Boyer. It is introduced by noted southwestern anthropologist J. Jefferson Reid, and contains an epilogue by Steve Hayden, one of Julian's sons.

From the Inside Flap: Field Man is the captivating memoir of renowned southwestern archaeologist Julian Dodge Hayden, a man who held no professional degree or faculty position but who camped and argued with the leading archaeologists of his time. This is the personal story of a blue-color scholar who bucked the conventional thinking on the antiquity of man in the New World, proving that he was at once a throwback and ahead of his time.

"This autobiography provides an honest, first-hand account of the life of a unique individual, a man who dedicated his immense skills and intellect to the study of ancient human adaptations to the Sonoran Desert." - Phoenix Kiva: The Journal of Southwestern Anthropology and History "Field Man is the most entertaining archaeologist's memoir I've ever read. Here is a book that goes just fine with a cold beer on a hot summer day." - The Dirt Brothers: Book Reviews for Amateur & Avocational Archaeologists "The book is fascinating, irreverent, humorous and never dull. It is a quick read and left me wishing I could have met and visited with Mr. Hayden myself." - The Hohokam (Key Words: Desert Archaeology, Julian D. Hayden, Bill Broyles, Diane E. Boyer, Western Americana, Biography, Emil Haury, Malcolm Rogers, Paul Ezell, Norman Tindale). book. Seller Inventory # 76842X1
