From the Publisher"Granberry takes a postprocessual approach to analyze the native cultures of the Americas, focusing on kin systems and linguistics. He has done a fine job of tackling an immensely complex and controversial subject, weaving his conclusions into a very readable and thought-provoking narrative."—John Worth, author of The Timucua Chiefdoms of Spanish Florida
"A work of detailed and painstaking scholarship. . . . providing an impressive account of the many Native American social systems. . . . Especially recommended to all students of Native American history, as well as non-specialist general readers with an interest in anthropology, linguistics, ethnohistory, and pre-Columbian American history."
"Granberry offers scenarios that should have us thinking of the innumerable possible trajectories that these societies might have followed had they not been impacted by Europeans."—Journal of Anthropological Research
