The mound builder myth : fake history and the hunt for a "lost white race"

The first book to chronicle the attempt to recast the Native American burial mounds as the work of a lost white race of "true" native Americans. Jason Colavito traces this monumental deception from the farthest reaches of the frontier to the halls of Congress, mapping a century-long conspiracy to fabricate and promote a false ancient history.
