Afterward, he will available to sign books. CLOVIS    casts    an    eye    across    the    vast,    empty lands   of   the   Western   American   basins   where   the clamor   of   petroleum   development   rings   tirelessly. It    is    a    book    that    bears    witness    to    the    quiet environmental    usurpation    of    American    public lands. The   story   involves   a   female   archeologist   who   is hired   to   survey   a   remote   area   in   Wyoming   for artifacts   where   a   pipeline   is   to   be   installed.   The permit   the   company   needs   to   operate   on   public land   requires   this   survey,   but   nobody   at   the   pipeline   company   wants   her   work   to   turn   up   anything   that   will   cause   construction   delays. And   then   she   stumbles   across   a   15,000-year-old   Clovis   artifact.   Suddenly,   as   they   work   to   preserve   a   newly   discovered   ancient   site, she and her team of archeologists find themselves squarely in the path of the CanAm pipeline. The   central   character's   mind   turns   to   the   possible   history   of   the   Clovis   people,   and   their   apocalyptic   demise   at   the   hands   of   their   own elegant   invention,   the   Clovis   Point.   She   relates   their   eclipsed   culture   to   the   precarious   balance   of   her   own   world   and   the   gradual destruction of our collective natural wealth. About the Author Jack   Clinton   went   from   being   a   mountain   climber   and   ski-bum   to   teaching   Spanish   at   Red   Lodge   High   school.   He   is   the   winner   of   the $1,000 Neltje Blanchan Award for the best fiction informed by a relationship with the natural world.
