Excellent! Memorable! Thoughtful!
My enjoyment of these ancient cultures has been expanded considerably by this valuable new book! I wish I could have learned about these Native American cultures when I was in school so I could have visited more of their many, many sites across the country. Excellent illustrations & maps. Memorable poetry & reflections back-in-time on the Mound Builders ways of life & circumstances. Thoughtful presentation of the mysterious Adena, Hopewell, Mississippian, & Effigy Mound Builders - sophisticated early societies, remarkable engineers & planners, outstanding traders, & resourceful earth movers!!! America's truly sophisticated early cultures whose technologies continue to inspire us & fill us with awe!!! Fabulous Book !!!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I am pleased to find such a valuable & exciting book on the ancient Mound Builders of North America! I've read about their 4000 years of prehistoric accomplishments with awe & find the sacred earthworks that they created to be astonishing! I have much greater respect for these earlier cultures after reading this marvelous book! Lovely illustrations & fabulous Timeline! This book explains many of the mysteries surrounding the Adena & Hopewell & Mississippian Cultures, & more about the enigmatic Effigy Mound Builders than I realized possible!
