Carl Chapman's personal knowledge of Missouri archaeology is unexcelled, and in this book he has catalogued the old sites, described them thoroughly and provided a lucid summary of Missouri's place in American geography, Chapman proposes that the major migration route to North America was by water 20,000 or more years ago and that probably the first people to reach Missouri came overland from Mexico. His study reconstructs the past cultural history of Missouri from the time of the first migrants before 12,000 B.C. to 1000 B.C. Although data in the study have been compiled from published and unpublished reports, there is much new information derived from original research. The old and the new have been combined to show the development of past societies in relation to both natural and cultural environment. Detailed drawings by Eleanor Chapman and photographs of artifacts, archaeological excavations, and sites illustrate the interpretation of Missouri's past.
