Biesterfeldt : a post-contact coalescent site on the northeastern plains by W. Raymond Wood( Book )

18 editions published between 1971 and 1973 in English and Undetermined and held by 659 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Biesterfeldt is a fortified village of about sixty earth lodges on the Sheyenne River in eastern North Dakota. A large central earth lodge faces a central plaza, with dwellings randomly set elsewhere in the village. ... The site is dated about 1750 to 1790, when trade goods had displaced many native tools of bone and stone. In the thirty years since W.D. Strong dug the site, new data have accumulated which require revisions in the interpretation of the Biesterfeldt component: the artifact complex conforms to that of Post-Contact Coalescent sites of the Plains Village pattern in the Missouri River trench to the west."--Abstract page v
Archaeology on the Great Plains( Book )

5 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 633 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is the first attempt to synthesize current knowledge on the cultural history of the Great Plains since Wedel's Prehistoric Man on the Great Plains became the standard reference on the subject almost forty years ago. Fourteen authors have undertaken the task of examining archaeological phenomena through time and by region to present a systematic overview of the region's human history. Focusing on habitat and cultural diversity and on the changing archaeological record, they reconstruct how people responded to the varying environment, climate, and biota of the grasslands to acquire the resources they needed to survive

Karl Bodmer's studio art : the Newberry Library Bodmer collection by W. Raymond Wood( Book )

5 editions published between 2002 and 2007 in English and held by 380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"To document the natural history and inhabitants of the American West, Prince Maximilian of Wied-Neuwied selected the Swiss artist Karl Bodmer to accompany him on his 1833-34 expedition up the Missouri River. Beginning in St. Louis, they journeyed as far as inland waterways could take them, through present-day Nebraska, South Dakota, North Dakota, and into Montana." "During the expedition, twenty-three-year-old Bodmer sketched and painted a wealth of landscapes and Native American portraits that would be immortalized as engravings in Maximilian's published journals and accompanying atlas. Now considered the most vivid and instructive depiction of the nineteenth-century American West and its people prior to the decimation of many Plains tribes by disease, Bodmer's artwork continues to intrigue historians, scholars, and collectors." "This volume collects Bodmer's studio art, a series of compositions he created in his Paris studio. These images, thirteen of them previously unpublished, are augmentations of the artist's expeditionary sketches and watercolors rendered in the complicated process of completing the aquatints. The publication of the Newberry Library Bodmer Collection, together with five sketches from the Baltimore Museum of Art, brings together nearly all of Bodmer's extant works not previously collected in book form. Karl Bodmer's Studio also includes sketches that Bodmer did not use for later paintings or engravings."--Jacket
The prehistory of Missouri by Michael J O'Brien( Book )

2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 310 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Prehistory of Missouri is a fascinating examination of the objects that were made, used, and discarded or lost by Missouri's prehistoric inhabitants over a period of more than eleven thousand years. Missouri's numerous vegetation zones and its diverse topography encompassed extreme variations, forcing prehistoric populations to seek a wide range of adaptations to the natural environment. As a result, Missouri's archaeological record is highly complex, and it has not been fully understood despite the vast amount of fieldwork that has been conducted within the state's borders. Michael J. O'Brien and W. Raymond Wood explore the array of artifacts that have been found in Missouri, pinpointing minute variations in form. They have documented the ranges in age and distribution of the individual forms, explaining why some persisted while others quickly disappeared. The book provides a comprehensive survey of what is currently known about Missouri's prehistoric peoples, often revealing how they made their living in an ever-changing world. The authors have applied rigorous standards of archaeological inquiry. Their main objective - demonstrating that the archaeological record of Missouri can be explained in scientific terms - is accomplished

Karl Bodmer's America revisited : landscape views across time by Robert M Lindholm( Book )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Less than thirty years after Lewis and Clark completed their epic journey, Prince Maximilian of Wied-a German naturalist-and his entourage set off on their own daring expedition across North America. Accompanying the prince on this 1832-34 voyage was Swiss artist Karl Bodmer, whose drawings and watercolors-designed to illustrate Maximilian's journals-now rank among the great treasures of nineteenth-century American art. This lavishly illustrated book juxtaposes Bodmer's landscape images with modern-day photographs of the same views, allowing readers to see what has changed, and what seems unchanged, since the time Maximilian and Bodmer made their storied trip up the Missouri River

A white-bearded plainsman : the memoirs of archaeologist W. Raymond Wood by W. Raymond Wood( Book )

5 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"W. Raymond Wood played a leading role in the early days of Great Plains archaeology. In A White-Bearded Plainsman, he tells how his own career emerged, as the discipline of Plains archaeology developed during the post-World War II era. Readers will learn of the childhood influences that lead Wood to pursue the path of archaeologist, and of the events and people that shaped his professional life. In addition to telling Wood's personal story, the book provides an intellectual history of the discipline of mid-continental archaeology over the last half century. It will thus be valuable to students and scholars in the field, as it describes how the paradigms in Plains and midwestern prehistory have changed over time. To understand the discipline, one must understand the cultural and intellectual underpinnings that shaped it. Wood's book helps map for a new generation of archaeologists from whence they've come, and his role in the developments along the way."--Provided by publisher
