• Bones, Boats, and Bison: Archeology and the First Colonization of Western North America

This revolutionary archeological synthesis argues an alternative model of the earliest human population of North America. E. James Dixon dispels the stereotype of big-game hunters following mammoths across the Bering Land Bridge and paints a vivid picture of marine mammal hunters, fishers, and general foragers colonizing the New World.  Applying contemporary scientific methods and drawing on new archeological discoveries, he advances evidence indicating that humans first reached the Americas using water craft along the deglaciated Northwest Coast about 13,500 years ago, some 2,000 years before the first Clovis hunters.  Dixon's rigorous evaluation of the oldest North American archeological sites and human remains offers a well-reasoned hypotheses about the physical characteristics, lives, and relationships of the First Americans.  Hes crisply written analysis of scientific exploration is essential reading for scholars, students, and general readers.
