Indians of North America: A New Look at Old Culturesby Fern G. Brown
Thousands of years before Columbus, large populations of people with a diversity of thriving cultures occupied the Americas. Great cities were built, sophisticated irrigation systems were constructed, medical knowledge flourished, and astronomers accurately tracked the movement of the sun, moon, and stars. Now, a strong environmental movement has sparked a reexamination of indigenous knowledge, with its emphasis on living in harmony with the earth. This book examines the science of the American Indians and its relevance today. It covers agriculture, pharmacology, architecture, math and astronomy, and tools, weapons, and technology.
