In the course of his interviews, Fields has unearthed a wealth of archival material, including diaries and letters previously unknown to the public, which add significant source material to his account. The book is thoroughly illustrated with historic photographs, many in color, illuminating the discovery and editing of the scrolls."--Publisher summary."@en
