Signed by author on title page without inscription.History, natural history, human history, and personal history and place are the cornerstones of The Eye of the Mammoth. But the specific history or place varies considerably from essay to essay. Harrigan's career has taken him from the Alaska Highway to the Chihuahuan Desert, from the casinos of Monaco to his ancestors' village in the Czech Republic. Texas is the subject of a number of essays, and a force in shaping others, as in The Anger of Achilles, in which a nineteenth century painting moves the author despite his possessing a Texan's suspicion of serious culture.
