Errata:
1. On page 8, the caption for Figure 1 should read as follows: "Map of the Smoky Basin study area showing the location of sites mentioned in the text: 1.) 14WC39, 2.) Koons / Uranium Bluff (14WC1 / 14WC409), 3.) Theis Bluff (14WC6 / 14WC402), and 4.) Coal Oil Canyon (14LO1 / 14LO401).

2. On page 10, in the caption for Figure 2, specimen f. (14LO1\#3420) is from Wild Horse Canyon, Utah, NOT Obsidian Ridge, NM.

3. Page 12, Column 2, Sentence 6 in the section entitled "Wild Horse Canyon Obsidian Use in the Great Plains" should read "The blade width is within the range of Scallorn arrow points . . ." not "The blade width is within the range of Scallorn dart points . . . ."

4. Page 13, Column 2. For clarification, the parenthetical phrase (Shoshone or even Ute) should read (Comanche or even Ute).
