Once, no humans lived on the continent of North America; then they began to journey, the first migrants arriving perhaps 15,000 to 20,000 years ago. † When a skeleton from long-ago centuries is discovered, scientists want to study it for information about the personís life and death, about her or his time and place in history. Sometimes artists are asked to reconstruct faces from the past using copies of their skulls. Then these nameless, unknown people can be "brought back to life"--remembered, and honored.

Now, when their skeletons are discovered, their stories can be told.

User Review  - Angel - Goodreads

The subject matter of this book was absolutely fascinating! If you're a fan of the tv show Bones, this might be a good read for you. There were parts where the writing wasn't stellar, but the book didn't suffer overall from those parts. Read full review
