Ancient Times: The Story of the First Americans

List Price: 20.34

This book begins at the end of the Ice Age, when bands of nomadic tribesmen began migrating across the land bridge from Asia to North America. It traces the spread of human settlement across the American continents from the snowfields of Alaska to the mountains of Chile, focusing upon the types of communities that arose in a wide diversity of natural environments. Students discover why certain peoples remained nomadic hunters and gatherers until the dawn of the modern age, while others settled down in farming communities. Still others, such as the Maya of Central America, developed an intricate form of writing and built great cities with huge stone temples.

Not only does this book cover material about Mesoamerica, you’ll find lots of helpful information about the Mound Builders, Toltecs, the Intuit, and more. This book does give thorough coverage, but be aware that chapter 1 has information that is presented as fact, when we believe it is conjecture. Also, chapter 1 has information that is not in keeping with young-earth creationist viewpoints.
