Synopsis

Ancient America by Marion Wood

This volume is part of a historical atlas series designed for young people. From the Mycenaean society of ancient Greece to the Aztec empire of 15th-century Mexico, the series aims to be a useful resource for understanding and appreciating bygone civilization. The books set out to offer young adults a systematic, cross-disciplinary overview of the world's important cultures. Each atlas is illustrated and contains charts, tables and chronologies to put significant events and periods into perspective. Special feature spreads highlight interesting facets of a culture, as well as the centers that can still be highlighted today. The series is aimed at young people from ten upwards. This volume offers young readers an introduction to the native peoples of the Americas before Columbus' arrival. It surveys the major tribes of North America and includes information about the geography and climate that helped to shape their cultures. The atlas also examines the great empires of Latin America, such as the Aztecs and the Incas.
