Kurzbeschreibung

This behind-the-scenes look at the search, discovery, and examination of Ice Age sites and artifacts reveals the real stories behind America's most important archaeological discoveries--and the teenagers, cowboys, and farmers who made them.

Synopsis

Who were the first Americans? Where did they come from? When did they arrive? In this dramatic reconstruction of the daily lives of the earliest Americans, leading anthropologist Kenneth Tankersley tackles those questions, explaining how people survived the Ice Age and forever altered the course of human history. Drawing on more than 2 decades of fieldwork around the world, Tankersley takes readers on an exciting journey into America's most ancient human past - from the deep recesses of underground caverns in the East to the mountains and deserts of the West - providing a behind -the-scenes look at the search, discovery and examination of Ice Age sites and artifacts. Based on the author's unique mix of archaelogy, anthropology, and history, IN SEARCH OF ICE AGE AMERICANS provides the most current theories and up-to-date answers to the fundamental questions of the continent's past. This the first book to tell the real stories behind America's most important archaelogical discoveries by those who made them.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Easy reading for an introduction into Ice Age Americans. . . 4. Januar 2004
Von LEE - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
This book is way too basic for anyone who has any experience in archeology. That being said, it was the perfect book for me. I was able to read the entire book sitting around a swimming pool over two short days during summer vacation.
To Tankersley's credit, he wrote a book that's easy to read and understand, i.e., it didn't put me to sleep. It also didn't answer all my questions about the origin of ice age americans. Perhaps that's what I appreciate about this book, it got me thinking and wanting to know more, especially about the discovery of ice age americans in South America and the Kennewick man.
In his book, Tankersley addresses the problem that plaques museum and private collections, i.e., fake artifacts. I found it interesting how difficult it is to detect fakes. It reminded me of a trip through the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness area. At nights around the campfire, the guides would chip rocks to make arrowheads. They would then scatter the newly made arrowheads for unsuspecting guests to find. Of course, the guides would "guide" them to their discovery and in turn would get a bigger tip at the end of the trip.
The one thing that I would have really liked to have included in the book is a graph or timeline on when ice age americans lived compared to other significant events.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Not Bad, But Not Too Informative 17. Dezember 2003
Von Chris Moore - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
It's true that "In Search of Ice Age Americans" is a fascinating tale of the history of first Americans research and of the joys and difficulties that go into the search for the elusive Paleoamerican cultures that first inhabited this continent so many thousands of years ago. If you want a joyful read with beautiful color photographs of Paleoamerican artifacts, then this book is for you.
Unfortunately, "In Search of Ice Age Americans" provides little new insight into the quest for the first Americans. It is true that this is difficult with so many books being published on this topic, but that leads me to the question, "What's the point of one more?" If you're just in it for fun, therefore, this book is a nice, well-written read. If you're a student of archeology looking for fresh, new insight into this topic, look somewhere else!

5.0 von 5 Sternen In Search of Ice Age Americans 4. September 2003
Von CaveSoftly - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Tankersely did a fantastic job with this book. It is informative and entertaining, and very easy to read for the layperson. I am an archaeologist fascinated with early Americans and the Ice Age and couldn't put this book down for two nights!
This book covers Dr. T.'s experiences and adventures in the field, the pitfalls of studying the Clovis/ Folsom people, fraud associated with the "black market" sales of early stone tools, and even comments on lay archaeologists contributions to the field. The photographs are beautiful and if you don't fall in love with the early inhabitants of the Americas well... you will! I enjoyed it so much that I actually sat down and wrote him a note to thank him- I have never done anything like that before. I sometimes loan my books to close friends but this one will never leave my bookshelf- no way!
If you buy only one book on the peopling of the Americas, buy this book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Entertaining 10. August 2014
Von JBB1 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a very entertaining book on one of my favorite subjects, the First Americans. When it comes to books about the First Americans, there are usually two kinds of books; straight research books and archaeological site reports. This book is not like either of these. This book is filled with stories about the players involved in the search and artifacts found of the First Americans. It is easy and entertaining to read. The author holds the readers' interest by telling the every day stories about a variety of subjects centering around the First Americans. My favorite story was about the fake Clovis Cache that some scoundrels tried to sell to Forest Fenn, Mr. Big Bucks - Clovis Cache owner himself. The story involved such people as Greg Perino, Woody Blackwell, Fenn, and the senior author of this book.

This book lies somewhere between archaeology textbook and novel, which makes some pretty entertaining reading. Two thumbs up.

Von Rough Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
If you are interested in prehistoric life on the N.A. continent, this is the book for you. Clovis life, daily existance, foods, touches on fauna, flora, etc. Highly recommend for average folks like myself, to be informative, not too technical for avg. folks!
