Description

Liz Bryan reconstructs the lives of some of the very first Canadians, who lived as nomadic buffalo hunters between the final days of the great Ice Age and the coming of the first Europeans. Bryan went beyond the part of their story that can be told through oral history, taking clues from decades of archaeological research.

 

In a writing style that is non-scientific yet based on scientific evidence, Bryan explains where the buffalo people might have come from and how they got on with their lives. Photographs, maps and line drawings help illustrate this immensely entertaining and informative account of these most ancient people.
