Synopsis: The second volume in this zany history series explores the ancient peoples and civilizations that existed in the land now called America. Carving spear points, creating cities, building giant earthworks (like bears with 70-foot shoulders!), these Ancient Americans were busy! Readers will discover just how much happened before Columbus ever set foot on American soil.

From School Library Journal: Grade 5-8-A lively romp through early human history in North America and Mesoamerica. Humorous cartoons abound as a wisecracking cockroach guides readers from about 10,500 B.C.E. to approximately 1000 C.E. Short chapter divisions, time-line and travel-site sidebars, and goofy captions spice up the currently known and surmised facts about early inhabitants of the Americas. Archaeological finds that have contributed to this knowledge explain how scientists learned what they believe to be true and how they have been able to hypothesize about the lives of these people. The factors that may have led to the rise and decline of each civilization discussed are based on current interpretations of archaeological evidence. Some of the same facts are presented in the first two chapters of Liz Sonneborn's The New York Public Library Amazing Native American History (Wiley, 1999). Helen Roney Sattler's The Earliest Americans (Clarion, 1993) also presents much of the same material. In addition, it includes South American civilizations; many detailed, informative illustrations; and a voluminous bibliography. Awesome Ancient Ancestors! has no glossary or bibliography.
