Editorial Reviews

Review

"For the first time in recent years, we have a synthesis of the latest thinking and discoveries by a younger scholar with an authoritative grasp of the subject. This book is an important contribution to the general literature of human prehistory, unique for its comprehensive coverage of the circumpolar regions."

10 of 10 people found the following review helpful By John T. Bandy on July 24, 2007
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is one of the best books I have ever read about human evolution and geography. The author seems thoroughly knowledgeable. He synthesizes his knowledge into a wonderfully readable, easy to understand text. If you are curious about the peopling of the north or just about the development of people in general, this is a good choice. If you could give six stars, I would do it. And I'm certainly not so effusive about everything...

10 of 11 people found the following review helpful By Erik D. Hilsinger on December 16, 2006
Format: Paperback
I think this is a beautiful synthesis of the state of information today regarding human occupation of the higher latitudes (read: brrr chilly). I have never met Dr. Hoffecker but I was one of the last students of Dr. Roger Powers, with whom Hoffecker worked in Alaska in the Nenana Valley and elsewhere, in the search for early human occupation in Alaska. Coupled with the same author's book on the Eastern European record, it provides an excellent picture of an important aspect of the upward trajectory of humanity from ambitious primate to h. sap. technologicus. If I return to teaching I will definitely use this as a text where subject appropriate, and in my consulting work I will likely refer to it frequently as the newest and best compendium of information.
