Before Columbus (Hardcover)

Before Columbus

$ 24.99

Traditionally, Americans learned in school that the ancestors of the people who inhabited the Western Hemisphere at the time of Columbus's landing had crossed the Bering Strait 12,000 years ago; existed mainly in small, nomadic bands; and lived so lightly on the land that the Americas was, for all practical purposes, still a vast wilderness. Charles C. Mann now makes clear in this account, rewritten for young people in large format, that archaeologists and anthropologists have spent the last 30 years proving these and many other long-held assumptions wrong.  Ages 8 to 12
