Who first settled in North America? When & how did they arrive? What were their cultures like? Who did they become over cent? What can we learn from them? 20,000 years ago nomadic people from Asia followed herds of caribou across the Bering land bridge & became the first settlers in the Americas. These people & the many who followed them fanned out across the land. They are the ancestors of all the Native American cultures. Here, Aveni recreates the tense atmosphere of a caribou hunt, the rowdiness of an Iroquois lacrosse game, & the mystery of the Night Way ceremony. Describes the excitement of discovering clues to the past through the exper. of archaeologists, linguists, & biologists. A celebration of the richness of Native American heritage. Illus.
