Review

"Karen Bruhns has written a stimulating and wide-ranging account of the origins and nature of ancient South American civilisation....an excellent introductory text to South America, and students, scholars and layreaders alike should all be grateful." New Scientist

"The book she wrote is a triumph. It is so well crafted and informative that it should be owned by anyone and everyone interested in the native cultures of South America....Bruhns is an excellent writer with the power of someone fully engaged in her work, combining love, knowledge of, and commitment to her subject....an eminently informative and enjoyable book." American Anthropologist

"A solid introductory book for generalists and for archaeologists trying to keep up with developments outside their areas of specialization." Choice

Book Description

Top Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
This is an excellent, affordable reference for those looking for a general coverage of ancient cultures in South America. It is quite approachable for someone new to this area of study, and is very commendable for being quite comprehensive. However, those interested in antiquities or the cultural output of these cultures will be quite disappointed with the lack of illustrations and photographs. Pick this one up to learn the ropes, and move on to more specific, better-illustrated references for the cultures that interest you.
