    DescriptionHailed by Bruce D. Smith, Curator of North American Archaeology at the Smithsonian Institution, as 'without question the best available book on the pre-Columbian Indian societies of eastern North America', this wide-ranging and copiously illustrated volume covers the entire sweep of Eastern Woodlands prehistory, with an emphasis on how these societies developed from hunter-gatherers to village farmers and town-dwellers.
