Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Written by accomplished scholar Dean Snow, this new text approaches native North America from the perspective of ecology and cultural evolution. Designed for semester-length courses, with an instructor's guide suggesting edits for ten-week terms and optional enhancements.KEY TOPICS:  The narrative includes Mesoamerica, and explicates the links between the part of North America covered by the United States and Canada and the portions covered by Mexico, Guatemala, Belize, and the Greater Antilles. Additionally, book is extensively illustrated with the author's own photographs and figures. Early chapters 1-4 cover the whole continent in a topical way to stress the earliest evidence, while later chapters 5-15 cover specific regions of the continent. MARKET: For cross-cultural research and introductory courses in North American Archaeology.

About the Author

Dean R. Snow is Professor Emeritus of Anthropology at Penn State University. He is an archaeologist who specializes in ethnohistoric and demographic problems. In recent years his work has led him into Geographic Information Systems (GIS) approaches to these issues. He has conducted research in Mexico and in the northeastern region of North America, where his work on the Iroquois is particularly well known. His current research includes cyberinfrastructure and the development of large GIS databases designed to explore large-scale population movements over time and space. He is also currently researching the sexual dimorphism of human handprints and hand stencils in the Upper Paleolithic caves of France and Spain.
