They were the first, the very first. They had conquered most of Eurasia, pressed north and east into the frigid tundra, and followed their visions, and their appetite across lost Beringia into the New World. While merely attempting to feed themselves, they had discovered a continent, a place untouched, teeming with gigantic life. Over the succeeding generations, they would penetrate south between the blue white ice fields and emerge upon that immensity open space, the windy steppes of western North America. Along the glacial front of the Laurentide Sheet, they would people the new land from one oceanic boundary to the other, and lay the human foundation for the incredible diversity of tongues and cultures that would greet the late coming Europeans 12,000 or more years in the future.
