NO STONE UNTURNED by Louis A. Brennan


Email this review


Presenting a knowledgeable interpretation of the latest findings in the field of North American prehistory, Louis Brennan, the author of two previous novels, turns to his avocational interest in archaeology. Explaining with scientific accuracy the very recent, Carbon-14 method of prehistoric, chronological measurement, the author speaks primarily of artifacts uncovered and measured in Santa Rosa, Texas, and Nevada and explores the startling possibility of an Amerind race of men living on this continent between 30,000 and 40,000 years ago. Mr. Brennan closes with a very brief, annotated list of standard books on archaeology, cultural and physical anthropology, and lithic technology as further background for the general reader with a keen interest in prehistoric man. Not a heavily documented work, this is a lively adventure which combines a comprehensive survey of world-wide archaeological investigations and controversies up to the present day with imaginative speculation about their implications for social dynamics.
