ANCIENT AMERICA: Cultural Atlas for Young People

In the same format as the four earlier volumes in this series, an oversize (9 (apple) x 12""), encyclopedic presentation, copiously illustrated with color photos of sites and artifacts as well as maps and artists' reconstructions. Covering the early peoples of two continents in topical double-spreads, there's room here for only a limited amount of detail, especially on the great civilizations of Central and South America. However, a good many facts are presented in usable form, and the illustrations will be especially useful. Look elsewhere for how this kind of information has been derived from archeological remains--or for interpretation or inspiration.
