This volume is the first attempt to synthesize current knowledge on the cultural history of the Great Plains since Wedel's Prehistoric Man on the Great Plains became the standard reference on the subject almost forty years ago. Fourteen authors have undertaken the task of examining archaeological phenomena through time and by region to present a systematic overview of the region's human history. Focusing on habitat and cultural diversity and on the changing archaeological record, they reconstruct how people responded to the varying environment, climate, and biota of the grasslands to acquire the resources they needed to survive.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This book covers more than 12,000 years of Native American and Euro-American occupation of the Great Plains. The contributors are recognized experts, including several with international reputations. With its excellent summaries, discussions of important archaeological sites, and extensive bibliography, it can be used in any university course dealing with the archaeology of the Great Plains or by general readers with a passionate interest in the Great Plains and its native cultural traditions." Choice

"A seminal work on Great Plains archaeology. This work examines the rich diversity of cultures and lifestyles that have existed in the region that extends from the Gulf of Mexico into central Canada. Excellent photographs and maps. Highly recommended." Library Journal

"Anyone interested in the Plains must read this book if they are to understand the depth and complexity of human adaptation to the vast interior grasslands." Phi Beta Kappa Key Reporter


"A much needed updating the first in more than thirty-five years of Plains archaeology. An excellent reference work that will be useful in both undergraduate and graduate classes that relate to the Plains." Susan C. Vehik, Associate Professor of Anthropology, University of Oklahoma

"Wood and his colleagues have woven together an admirable tapestry that supersedes Wedel's seminal volume Prehistoric Man on the Great Plains." R. Bruce McMillan, Director, Illinois State Museum
