About this book

History of this huge area of western North America, from the last glaciation to recent times.
`As a study in prehistory the book represents what all field-based archaeological studies should strive for: a full integration of the geosciences and biosciences with the record of human occupation...It is sure to become a standard regional reference in the geological, biological, and anthropological sciences.' American Antiquity
