Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this illustrated work, Kurtn offers a vivid panorama of vertebrate animal life as it unfolded during the more than three million years before humans came to the New World.

Review:

"One of the finest paleontologists of our time, Björn Kurtén is a marvel." Steven Jay Gould

Synopsis:

We do not know for sure when the first men appeared in America. What we do know is that vigorous people called Paleoindians flourished here at the end of the Ice Age, in the last millennia before the great transition of 10,000 years ago when the great ice sheets that had covered the northern part of the continent were finally vanishing. The Paleoindians are regarded as the ancestors of today's Indians.
