About the Author


From the Preface

“Included are resumes of the work, rework, and use of such basic materials as antler, bone, clay (argil), shell, stone, and wood.  For the most part, these are the materials from which the prehistoric Indian made his implements: tools, weapons, utensils, ceremonial objects, ornaments and charms.  In that long ago era, survival and level of affluence depended upon the degree of ingenuity and skill of individuals and groups.”
