Handbook of North American Indians, Volume 13: Plains, Pt. 1 and Pt. 2.

£50.00

Product description

The Handbook of North American Indians is a monographic series of edited scholarly and reference volumes in American studies, published by the Smithsonian Institution beginning in 1978. To date, fifteen volumes have been published. Each volume addresses a sub-topic of American research, and contains a number of articles or chapters by individual specialists in the field coordinated and edited by a volume editor. The overall series of twenty volumes is planned and coordinated by a general or series editor. Until the series was suspended, mainly owing to lack of funds, the series editor was William C. Sturtevant, who died in 2007.[1]

This work documents information about all Indigenous peoples of the Americas north of Mesoamerica, including cultural and physical aspects of the people, language family, history, and prehistory. This is a reference work for historians, anthropologists, other scholars, and the general reader. The series utilized noted authorities for each topic. The set is illustrated, indexed, and has extensive bibliographies. Volumes may be purchased individually.
