Book News
Ethnologist Gerber (the Ethnology Museum, U. of Zurich) traces the history, culture, and structure of these peoples since they first crossed the land bridge from Russia during the Ice Age. He examines the continuities and discontinuities in the Indian cultures, and the relations between Indians and white men. The continuities are well-captured in art, and some 200 illustrations, almost half in color, capture the ceremonial brilliance and mythic resonance of the cultures.
