The Fascinating History of American Indians

The Age Before Columbus

Series: America's Living History

By Tim McNeese

Before Christopher Columbus’s arrival in the Caribbean, the landscape of the United States looked much different. Thousands of years ago ancient hunters migrated to North America following the animals they hunted for food. These ancient peoples spread out across the land and developed distinct American Indian cultures in various regions. Follow author Tim McNeese as he examines the extraordinary history of American Indians from the Anasazi cliff dwellers in the West to the great Iroquois Confederacy in the East.
