This book is a tribute to the late Dr. Richard Forbis, the figure many Plains archaeologists regard as the founder and nurturer of Plains archaeology in Canada. The book begins with a fond reminiscence by Scott Raymond, a longtime colleague, who relates some of Dick's foibles, his distinctive chuckle, the near permanent fixture of his pipe, but also his sterling qualities as a scholar and teacher.
