About this title

Synopsis:

Traces the rise and decline of the Olmecs, Maya, Incas, Aztecs, and the major tribes of North America and discusses the culture of each tribe

From Library Journal:

Highwater has won much acclaim for his work on the American Indians, and this elaboration of his public TV series is a colorful panorama of the Indians' worlds until the white man took their lands. Their civilizations rose and fell many times before culminating in such wondrous cities as Tenochtitlan (ancient Mexico City), which dazzled the conquistadors, for it was five times the size of London. A marvel of city planning, built in the middle of a lake, surrounded by floating gardens, it was connected to the mainland by causeways and aqueducts. Though these civilizations have yet to yield up all their secrets, Highwater's book gives a very readable account of what is known to date. Recommended for general as well as scholarly collections.
