Unlike any other book dealing with native agriculture in North America, this book takes a geographical stance, focusing on fields, field features, and field systems. Emphasis is placed on modifications of the biophysical environment, specifically vegetation, soil, slope, and hydrology. Nearly 200 maps, drawings, and photographs richly illustrate the complexities of aboriginal American food production.

"William E. Doolittle... has provided us with a most valuable and unique volume....Throughout one is struck by Doolittle's refreshing common sense and lack of pretension....absolutely a must for anyone concerned with the aboriginal crop production in North America. There's just nothing like it; so comprehensive in areal scope and at the same time focused on topic."--Historical Geography
