Turtle Island: The Story of North America's First People by Eldon Yellowhorn and Kathy Lowinger.
Native legend has it that the Americas were formed on the back of a turtle. While storytelling provides a rich background to their history, scientific findings prove that the presence of Indigenous people dates back to the end of the Ice Age. Now archaeologists have been able to piece together what life may have been like many thousands of years before the Europeans arrived. Discover what people at, how they expressed themselves through art, and how they adapted to the land; experience a day in the life of the earliest peoples; read about how life changed with the arrival of the Europeans.
The stories commonly told of Indigenous people rarely include what life was like pre-contact. This stunning book fills that gap in history.
