Abstract:

Annotation

The Native people of the Canadian prairies have been living on the land for at least 12,000 years, finding sustainable lifestyles from the grasslands and the aspen parklands. Our knowledge of these people is limited: they had no writing, no large settlements, and very little in the way of lasting material things. Before the arrival of Europeans, they had no guns, no horses, and no hard metals. What clues we have come primarily from the work of archaeologists sifting through the buried evidence-little bits of stone, bone, and pottery, refuse heaps and firepits, ancients villages and burial sites, fingerprints, and prehistoric blood. Liz Bryan takes the clues from decades of archaeological research and presents an immensely entertaining and informative account of these ancient people. First published by University of Alberta Press in 1991, this revised and updated edition of the book features photographs, maps, and line drawings to help illustrate this amazing story.
