I was not going to not add anymore but,
Some classes you might want to take about Native American Prehistoric Sites:
University of Riverside (UCR)- Anthropology and California History
I would also recommend that you contact Cal-State San Bernardino Extending Learning Center with regards to Emmett Harder. He offers a course each year about Death Valley and beyond. In fact, he is going to be doing a four week long series on Death Valley at CSUSB this fall – I plan to be there!
With regard to books – I highly recommend you visit UCR’s and CSUSB’s library. You want to browse/search “university publications on archaeological sites” – in the 1960’s and 1970’s, UCLA was publishing about 30 of these a year on archaeological sites in and around California’s Desert. Another great source is Desert Magazine.
I would also recommend you attend a Maturango Museum Petroglyph Tour. Some of the tour guides do an excellent job discussing migration routes and nearby camps.
Note: I do know of Dr. Hessler, but was never aware of a “congratulations” from him. News to me!
