Everyone is familiar with the story of the Founding Fathers of America. But who were the original settlers thousands of years ago, and when and how did they arrive? This is the compelling and little-known story that Brian Fagan recounts, drawing on cutting-edge research ranging from archaeology and ethnohistory to climatology and high-tech chemistry and physics.
Fagan describes the controversies over first settlement, which probably occurred towards the end of the Ice Age, and the debates over the routes used as humans moved south into the heart of the continent.
The author traces the origins and development of the Moundbuilder societies of the Eastern Woodlands, the spectacular Pueblo societies of the Southwest, the flamboyant Mississippian culture of the South and Southeast and the mounds of the ancient city of Cahokia. New research provides particular insights into the spiritual beliefs of Mississippian groups.
The book ends with the Algonquian and Iroquoian peoples of the Northeast and St Lawrence Valley, and an epilogue describes the devastating consequences for Native Americans of European contacts.
