Summary "This manuscript is an edited volume about women archaeologists working in the Great Basin. It contains nine chapters, plus a foreword and introduction, about how women's experiences in archaeology have differed from men's, the types of experiences they've had, and what made a difference in their careers. There are many personal stories about women's experiences in archaeology and a couple of chapters on gender differences in publishing and conference participation"-- Provided by publisher
