With an authoritative grasp of known historical data, Wilbur investigates the mysterious pre-Columbian age and, in his inimitable style, reconstructs the alien world found by the first Europeans on this continent. With a Holmesian dedication to logic, and beautifully rendered drawings that illustrate the text, Wilbur presents a clear and compelling vision of what the Vikings discovered in America, how the Indians reacted to their presence, and if, in fact, there weren't even earlier seafarers who came during the Bronze and Iron Ages to our shores. This book is at once a valuable reference tool, and a vivid and fascinating depiction of a time we can only imagine. C. Keith Wilbur, a retired medical doctor and former naval officer who served in World War II, is the author of Globe Pequots Illustrated Living History Series, which now comprises nine titles. (8 1/2 x 11, 144 pages)
