Editorial Reviews

Review

"A wealth of material. . . on four culture periods—Paleo-Indian, Archaic, Woodland, and Mississippian—[with] just enough text to explain the illustrations."
Library Journal


"Sun Circles and Human Hands is a remarkable visual presentation of the Southeastern Indian cultures. . . . This book can be recommended to scholars and schools, to artists and artisans for stimulation and study of the prehistory of the Southeast."
—James B. Griffin, former Director of the Museum of Anthropology, University of Michigan

Around for nearly 50 years, this classic book is a requirement for anyone studying the archaeology and iconography of the Southeastern Ceremonial Complex.

Format: Paperback
I have owned this book for about 40 years. I have read it through and through a number of times. Many black and white pictures of artifacts as well as drawings, maps, etc. If you have any interest in the Southeastern Indians, this is not just a recommendation but a requirement.

Excellent, detailed reference for traditional pre-contact designs and their details of southeastern woodland designs. It will now be a permanent part of my reference library. I am sure it will be frequently referenced. I am pleased. Excellent book.

Format: Paperback
I got this book because it was recommended to me during a Native American pottery class I took as a good resource for history and designs of the eastern Woodland tribes. It is very helpful in that regard.

Book proved to be an excellent resource. Pictures were black and white throughout the book, but very clear. Descriptions were concise and detailed.
