The College bookstore tells us in late March that this is out of print! Please find a copy. Here are some suppliers:
* Orca books downtown may have some
* Powell's Books in Portland has about a dozen: http://www.powells.com
* Search at http://addall.com yields dozens of copies in various used bookstores scattered around the country
* as a last resort, try the supermarket book chains where you pay a premium price (B&N, Amazon, ...)
* Prehistoric Astronomy in the Southwest, by J. McKim Malville and Claudia Putnam (1989, Johnson Books, Boulder, ISBN 1-55566-116-5, pbk) if the bookstore can get it. This will be useful if the class decides to organize a fieldtrip to Chaco Canyon.
