Well, it's a great book, in fact it's so great I have two copies. One I'm reading and one I ordered from another swapper. I like most of Gear's books, and I'm not disappointed with this one. Fast paced, the Gear team put together a fine story.
Fourth of the great anthropologically based series beginning with the settlement of the epi- glacial North American Continent and visiting tribal peoples over the next few thousand years. I loved them all.
