Paperbound edition of a 1999 publication. Stressing the dynamism of Northwest Coastal hunter-gatherers, anthropologists Ames (Portland State U.) and Maschner (U. of Wisconsin) describe the 11,000 year- history of these exceptional "First Nation Peoples" as a matter of "stops and starts, shifts and tacks," with times of peace and conflict, and slower or faster periods of technical and economic change. Writing for a general audience, the authors less evaluate and balance competing theories than elucidate their own view. Includes numerous high-quality b&w photos, drawings, and maps.
