Skull Collectors, Hardback (October 2010)
When Philadelphia naturalist Samuel George Morton died in 1851, no one cut off his head, boiled away its flesh, and added his grinning skull to a collection of crania. This title tells the strange - and at times gruesome - story of Morton, his contemporaries, and their search for a scientific foundation for racial difference.

It examines the tales of beggars, convicts, ex-slaves, prisoners of the Confederacy, and others to explore cultural authority, truth-telling, and the nature of print media.
