520    "From the author of Apocalyptic Planet, an unsparing, 
       vivid, revelatory travelogue through prehistory that 
       traces the arrival of the First People in North America 
       twenty thousand years ago and the artifacts that enable us
       to imagine their lives and fates. Scientists squabble over
       the locations and dates for human arrival in the New 
       World. The first explorers were few, encampments fleeting.
       At some point in time, between twenty and forty thousand 
       years ago, sea levels were low enough that a vast land 
       bridge was exposed between Asia and North America. But the
       land bridge was not the only way across. This book upends 
       our notions of where these people came from and who they 
       were. The unpeopled continent they reached was inhabited 
       by megafauna--mastodons, sloths, mammoths, saber-toothed 
       cats, lions, bison, and bears. The First People were not 
       docile--Paleolithic spear points are still encrusted with 
       the protein of their prey--but they were wildly 
       outnumbered and many were prey to the much larger animals.
       This is a chronicle of the last millennia of the Ice Age, 
       the gradual oscillations and retreat of glaciers, the 
       clues and traces that document the first encounters of 
       early humans, and the animals whose presence governed the 
       humans' chances for survival"--|cProvided by publisher.
