A companion volume to Hyde's Indians of the High Plains: From the Prehistoric Period to the Coming of Europeans, this book deals with the Mound Builders and later Indians of the woodlands between the Hudson and the Mississippi rivers. From the archaeological evidence, Indian migration legends, and account of the early European explorers - some of whom were acquainted with these Indians as early as 1500 - the author has reconstructed the details of the daily lives of these people as well as their movements and migrations. There emerges a rich and colorful account of a much-neglected phase of Indian history.
