Discovering man's past in the Americas by George E Stuart( Book )

Discovering Man's· Past in the Americas chronicles human development in the Western Hemisphere from Ice Age wanderers to builders of mighty empires that astounded 16th-century Spanish conquistadors. The setting for this absorbing story reaches from Alaska to the tip of South America. With authors George and Gene Stuart and their four children you journey to sites where students patiently brush the dust of millenniums from the bones of mammoths at an ancient hunting camp; you stroll a deserted plaza in the moonlight, and hear echoes answer your call like voices from the past. You peer over the shoulders of archeologists as they glean information from vine-covered temples, dusty caves, burial mounds, and heaps of rubbish then turn to computers for help in filling in the details of a picture from the past. Dazzling works of art in gold, jade, mica, and stone tell of the abilities of ancient artists; the beauty of ritual objects and everyday goods reveals the patience and skill of the craftsmen who made them. Drawings, maps, and nearly 200 photographs take you to places as varied as the Grand Canyon and Aztec temples once reddened with the blood of human sacrifice -- Book jacket
