Ancient North America: The Archaeology of a Continent

Thames and Hudson, 1995 - 528 páginas
Hailed on its first publication as a masterly account for both general reader and student, Ancient North America traces the entire course of native American history from the first appearance of humans in the New World more than 14,000 years ago to the cataclysmic aftermath of European settlement. This standard synthesis has now been completely revised and expanded by Professor Fagan for the second edition. Controversies over first settlement are updated. A new chapter has been added on the eastern Plains farmers and their interaction with the nomads of the Great Plains. Canadian cultures and archaeological sites receive additional attention, with expanded coverage of Northwest Coast prehistory. New sections describe the rock paintings of the Pecos area and the archaeology of the Northwest Plateau. Current theoretical issues are debated, guiding the reader through a rapidly changing field.
