Explorations in Sights and Sounds
Readers of Explorations In Sights and Sounds are in for a welcome surprise, especially if they have an occasion to wade through a professional monograph outside their own area of interest or expertise. Exploring Buried Buxton is a rigorous, specialized archaeological monograph that should be read by all who wish to learn of ethnic relations in the United States. It is also readable, comprehensive, interesting, and important. Moreover, Exploring Buried Buxton is significant as the record of a model academic process. As a result of the activities centering on Buxton, Iowa, over the past few years, professors have published, students have learned, the non-academic community has been involved in its past, grant monies have been well spent, and the nation has gained precious insight into a forgotten chapter of its multiethnic past. All of this is done in an understated style, in a very well-organized format, and, yes, even with humor.
