Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Northwestern Plains is developing a unique and viable archeology, offering students choosing their future research topics in this exciting time a variety of possibilities. The entire area of the Northwestern Plains--mountains, foothills, and plains--has been a testing ground for human ingenuity. It provides an unusual opportunity to study more than 11,000 years of prehistroic hunting and gathering. Prehistoric Hunters of the High Plains synthesizes what was a disparate body of data on the prehistory of the Northwestern Plains and presents it in rational and understandable terms.

Key Features

* Examines the prehistoric cultural chronology and the sources of the data for the Northwestern High Plains

* Presents prehistoric hunting and gathering subsistence strategies for the Northwestern High Plains

* Takes an interdisciplinary approach to the study of archaeology using the data from geology, soils, faunal analysis, pollen, and phytolith studies

* Provides a methodology for data recovery

Book News Annotation:

Synthesizes the archaeological findings since the 1930s in an area stretching from eastern Idaho to the western Dakotas, and southern Montana to northern Colorado. The existing artifacts--weapons and bones, mostly--weight any treatment towards hunting, but tools, rock art, human remains, and other topics are also considered, as are the methodologies of study. The first edition was in 1978.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

The Great Plains of Northern America constitute a large share of the continent, extending north and south from well into Canada to the border of Mexico, and from the base of the Rocky Mountains on west to the Eastern Woodlands. Actual boundaries are somewhat flexible, depending on the reactions to the area by the particular observer. There are some places one can almost see a line separating the Rocky Mountains and the Plains. Elsewhere on the western border of the Plains, mountain ranges extend deep into the Plains and often form intermontane basins the line of demarcation.
