Description

Long before it was invaded by Europeans, North America had thousands of years of human history. The land had long been settled by Native Americans who had developed many varied, complex, and long-lasting cultures across the continent. This book looks at the pre-European Native American story in its own right. This second edition has been revised and updated to incorporate new evidence and the latest debates in the field. New maps and illustrations, and companion website with additional resources for students and instructors, make the book even more well-rounded. Alice Beck Kehoe's pioneering work is a powerful fusion of archaeology with history, challenging students to understand America's long pre-European history.show more
