      Great Basin peoples were nomadic, traveling the desert in search of food. The tribes that used horses were able to cover a much larger area than those on foot. Because of the limited food supply, Great Basin Indians traveled in small groups. In winter they typically lived in villages along the edge of valley floors near water and firewood.   I want to thank all my readers who bought my books for the Christmas holiday, especially Preserving Traces of the Great Basin Indians. The book is devoted to enabling people interested in American Indian artifacts to identify and date the many types of projectile points, beads, knives, pendants scrapers and other stone artifacts that have been found in the Great Basin.
