Review quote

"Karen Bruhns has written a stimulating and wide-ranging account of the origins and nature of ancient South American civilisation...an excellent introductory text to South America, and students, scholars and layreaders alike should all be grateful." New Scientist "The book she wrote is a triumph. It is so well crafted and informative that it should be owned by anyone and everyone interested in the native cultures of South America...Bruhns is an excellent writer with the power of someone fully engaged in her work, combining love, knowledge of, and commitment to her subject...an eminently informative and enjoyable book." American Anthropologist "A solid introductory book for generalists and for archaeologists trying to keep up with developments outside their areas of specialization." Choice
