Abstract
 
Description
When evidence of early cultures is dug out of the soil as amulets, skulls, or spears, it provides exciting glimpses into the real lives of the first Americans.

Nomadic people from Asia followed herds of caribou across the Bering land bridge and became the first settlers in the Americas. These people and the many who followed them fanned out across the continents. They are the ancestors of all the Native American Cultures.

Anthony Aveni brings the adventure of this time to life by re-creating the tense atmosphere of a caribou hunt, the rowdiness of an Iroquois lacrosse game, and the mystery of the Night way initiation ceremony. He describes the excitement of discovering clues to the past through the experiences of archaeologists, linguists, and biologists.

This is a celebration of the richness of Native American heritage.
