"No other group of people could have written this landmark interpretation. Their training and experiences in archaeology, geography, and the natural sciences make them the perfect people to create this unique and attractive work."—William E. Doolittle, author of Cultivated Landscapes of Native North America
"A major contribution to the field of Cahokia studies."—Mark Mehrer, author of Cahokia's Countryside
"[This] should profoundly alter future discussion and evaluations of Cahokia, as well as other Mississippian centers."—Ohio Valley History
The massive earthen mounds of ancient Cahokia in southwestern Illinois form the largest and most complex archaeological site in the United States. Here, at the center of a vibrant Native American culture, a settlement of Mississippian Indians grew, prospered, and declined. Tracing perceptions of the Cahokian landscape from the times of Indians and explorers to the present, Envisioning Cahokia details the archaeology of North America's largest prehistoric urban center.
