Back cover copy

We do not know for sure when the first men appeared in America. What we do know is that vigorous people called Paleoindians flourished here at the end of the Ice Age, in the last millennia before the great transition of 10,000 years ago when the great ice sheets that had covered the northern part of the continent were finally vanishing. The Paleoindians are regarded as the ancestors of today's Indians.
