Childs is a great storyteller of the migration of peoples into what is now North America. In exploring the recent anthropological finds, he brings new light to some outdated conceptions we hold on too. We all know about the land bridge across Siberia, but we also learn about the coastal plains route that allowed migration at the same time. Perhaps most interesting is the evidence of settlements that pre-date even the earliest finds by thousands of years. A thrilling read made all the more interesting with Childs traveling to the archeological locations he discusses in the book.
