This collection of thirteen papers focuses on what it meant to be 'on the move' at different times in prehistory. Ideas of journeys and travel are integral to many traditions of interpreting the prehistoric archaeological record. Travel was after all the driving force behind the formation and transformation of identity. How ironic it is that this feature of prehistory has been so overlooked when the ancient world's 'discovery' in the Eighteenth and Nineteenth Centuries occurred primarily as the result of travel. The contributors to this volume see journeys as an integral part of prehistoric life - socially meaningful - which must be understood within their (pre)historic contexts.

Dinosaurs, indelible real life characters and a dramatic plunge down a judicial rabbit hole that occurs more often than imaginable. The book has been described as "soul searching," "a roller coaster ride" and "movie material" (it has, in fact, now been adapted as a script). It charts the unique journey of a small family, the unconditional support of community, both local and national, and lessons learned as the result of amazing entrepreneurial experiences. All in all, it tells a compelling true story of survival despite curious challenges. This book is a "Thank You" and a message of possibility to anyone who promotes inspiration through honest intent.

"From the icy Arctic vastness to the steamy tropical swamps of Florida, people came upon a teeming variety of animals in North America after the Ice Age. The book travels the continent region by region, introducing fascinating and bizarre beasts including ground sloths, glyptodonts, mastodons, mammoths, saber-toothed and scimitar-toothed cats, and the short-faced bear. Alongside these now-extinct animals were lions, cheetahs, zebras, and camels - animals that have long since disappeared from their North American homes - as well as species still seen today, such as caribou, grizzlies, eagles, salmon, bison, coyotes, prairie dogs, condors, alligators, and jaguars." "A wealth of fossil evidence informs the stunning computer-generated panoramas that fill the pages of the volume. Bones of the ancient beasts again have flesh and fur, unfamiliar animals again roam the landscapes, and the world of prehistoric North America comes startlingly to life."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
