9780500278178: Ancient North America: The Archaeology of a Continent

The entire course of native American history is traced in this book, from the first appearance of humans in the New World, more than 14,000 years ago, to the cataclysmic aftermath of European settlement. This text has been completely revised and expanded. It includes an updated account of controversies over first settlement, and new material on the eastern Plains farmers, the rock paintings of the Pecos areas and the archaeology of the Northwest Plateau. Canadian cultures and archaelogical sites receive additional attention, and current theoretical issues are debated, guiding the reader through a rapidly changing field. Fagan is the author of "The Great Journey", "The Journey from Eden" and "Kingdoms of Gold, Kingdoms of Jade".
