Ancient CanadaBook - 1989
Were the people who sheltered in the Yukon's Bluefish caves some 15,000 to 20,000 years ago Canada's first occupants? Why was a child buried with great ceremony on the Labrador coast 7,000 years ago? And why did the inhabitants of northern British Columbia build their extraordinary hilltop fortresses hundreds of years ago? Based on actual archaeological excavations, the author of this book vividly reconstructs fourteen scenes from Canadian prehistory. Robert McGhee's text is enhanced by the paintings of Gilles Archambault and the color photographs of Harry Foster, illustrations produced especially for this book.
