Congratulations Deetz Award Winner!
December 01, 2012
Kelly Dixon is the senior editor of 'An Archaeology of Desperation: Exploring the Donner Party's Alder Creek Camp' which has been selected to receive the Society for Historical Archaeology's James Deetz Book Award for 2013. The Deetz Award is named for James Deetz (1930-2000), whose books are classics for professional archaeologists as well as for non-specialists. Deetz's accessible and entertaining style of writing gave his books influence beyond the discipline because they are read by a broad audience of non-specialists. The Deetz Award is intended to recognize books and monographs that are similarly well written and accessible to all potential readers. ** Co-editors of the 'An Archaeology of Desperation: Exploring the Donner Party's Alder Creek Camp' are Julie Schablitsky and Shannon Novak
