The First AmericansBook - 1994
"This beautiful volume traces the development of early civilization in the Americas and surveys the origin, history, and culture of some of the most fascinating and spectacular civilizations the world has ever known." "Lavishly illustrated throughout with full-color and black-and-white pictures, drawings, and maps, this book traces the six most important steps in the development of pre-Columbian civilization in North, Central, and South America. Juan Schobinger, writing with general readers in mind, describes the diverse cultures of the first Americans according to region, while noting especially those "events of civilization" that stand as milestones for understanding the history of civilization in the Western Hemisphere as a whole."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
